Our scientific mission is to advance ultrafast laser technology, explore new areas of coherent light generation, and apply our uniquely tailored ultrafast sources to better understand chemical, biological, and physical processes.
Utilizing resonant enhancement, we achieved mW-level single-cycle THz generation with a thin lithium niobate plate integrated in a high-power modelocked thin-disk oscillator. This breakthrough enables a compact, cost-effective, and high-power single-cycle THz source at MHz repetition rates.
Clara Saraceno receives the Harold E. Edgerton Award for pioneering contributions to the development of ultra-fast high-power lasers and laser-driven THz sources.
We are thrilled to announce that our start-up project is now funded by EXIST Forschung Transfer program. We received over 900k€ to launch a spin-off from the chair of photonic and ultrafast laser science. It is marking a significant milestone in our journey.
In this article, we explore filamentation at 1.03 μm in air at repetition rates up to 100 kHz. At repetition rates ≥40 kHz, a significant quasi-stationary density depleted zone is established around the plasma. This cumulative effect has been found to cause a significant reduction in the breakdown potential for spark gaps close to the filament.
