Application Areas

IMRA’s Femtosecond Fiber Lasers can be used in a broad range of fields.  In general, the applications fall into three main categories:

Materials Processing

Femtosecond lasers provide modest pulse energy over a very short pulse duration which results in extremely high intensities.  These intensities enable a number of novel ways to modify materials, including:


The high peak intensity of a focused femtosecond pulse induces nonlinear absorption. Combined with the low average power, these lasers have been used in a variety of biomedical applications such as:

Imaging and Spectroscopy

Femtosecond laser pulses offer very high energy intensity for unique imaging and spectroscopy techniques.
