Based on an optimized chip design suitable for efficient fiber coupling, socalled tailored mini‐bars, DILAS has introduced a new platform of fiber‐coupled diode laser modules. In the following, we describe the basic ideas of the concept, together with the integration of such fiber‐coupled diode laser modules into a new series of turn‐key diode laser systems.

Macro Material Processing
Due to their different physical beam characteristics, there are fundamental differences in the process behavior of CO2 lasers and solid‐state lasers during deep penetration welding. High‐quality full penetration welds can be achieved in thick sheet metal with both beam sources. However, the beam sources differ in regards to productivity, process stability, and seam quality depending on the material being welded.

Components used in the manufacture of steel strip work in exceptionally aggressive environments and have to withstand service at high temperatures in corrosive atmospheres under mechanical wear and frequent and heavy impact loading. Conventionally, components that are subject to high wear or corrosion have often been manufactured from rich chemistry steels or hardfaced using submerged arc clad martensitic stainless steels...

Due to their outstanding properties, interest in lasers has increased greatly in precision agriculture as a potential tool for non‐chemical weed control. unwanted plants have a negative effect on crop growth, especially in close surroundings. Weed control based on mechanical (e.g. hoeing) or thermal (flaming) methods do not meet the precision requirements to preserve crop plants. An innovative combination of image...

Measuring the propagation parameters of a laser beam is an important method of understanding the quality of the laser beam and predicting its performance for various laser applications. For this reason, it is one of the major specifications required by laser users and reported by laser manufacturers. There are three different types of instruments commercially available, and in this article we will explain the differences...

Fiber technology has become well established in ultrafast laser technology. Specific strengths of that approach are quite beneficial in some cases, while serious limitations still favor bulk solutions in other cases. The article discusses various technical issues both for mode‐locked oscillators and ultrafast amplifiers.
