Front end Laser SMART-SEED / Fiber lasers

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

Front end Laser SMART-SEED summary

IDIL Fibres Optiques has a extensive and recognized experience within  front end laser (seed 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 front end laser (Smart Seed – seeder laser) 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 35ns) such as narrow linewidth fiber laser, phase modulation, amplification, synchronization and pulse shaping (Arbitrary Waveform Generator).
