FEMTOSECOND LASER ON A CHIP

Project description

Innovative femtosecond laser

Femtosecond lasers have enabled the direct measurement of optical frequencies and the realisation of optical clocks. Femtosecond lasers present a high potential for a wide range of applications. However, the technology’s large size and high cost restrict its applications. The EU-funded FEMTOCHIP project will deliver a fully integrated chip-scale mode-locked laser with pulse energy, peak power and jitter specifications of a shoebox-sized fibre laser system. The innovation will permit the performance of a considerable part of femtosecond laser applications. The project will address key challenges to facilitate high pulse peak power and overpower while suppressing Q-switching instabilities. It will perform short pulse production by on-chip dispersion compensation and artificial saturable absorption.
