SMART-SEED Front end Laser

/ Fiber lasers

IDIL Fibres Optiques designs and manufactures front end laser that are used for high power laser systems seeding.

IDIL Fibres Optiques has a extensive and recognized experience within  Front End Laser in the field of international standing projects. As an example, IDIL has collaborated with the CEA (the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission) since 1995, within the framework of the LMJ project (the Megajoule Laser).

Our seeder laser (Smart Seed) is available at different wavelengths (1030nm, 1053nm, 1064nm) and integrates all the optical functions needed to obtain the best performance of pulse (from 300ps to 25ns) such as narrow linewidth fiber laser, phase modulation, amplification, synchronization and pulse shaping (Arbitrary Waveform Generator).


  • High temporal extinction ratio (>50dB)
  • Electronic control to guarantee long term stability of extinction ratio
  • Internal phase modulation to avoid SBS effect
  • User adjustable pulse waveform / step : 125ps
  • Controlled by 7” touchscreen – User friendly
  • Quick installation
  • Remotely controlled, GUI interface
