Lasers

As one of the work packages devoted to supply chain technologies, the laser workpackage is delivering state-of-the art custom laser systems for the prototypes being developed in workpackages 5 to 9. We are providing tailored lasers for quantum sensors with specification outside those to be developed in WP1.

These lasers are based on semiconductor disk laser technology, which is currently displacing several high-power commercial systems due to its compactness, robustness, stability and spectral flexibility. We are analysing the market and, where appropriate, developing compact, narrow linewidth lasers at custom wavelengths throughout the visible spectral region for ion trapping, including systems at 461nm and 689nm.

We are also developing a unique compact femtosecond comb system for optical clocks. The Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics is facilitating the transfer of these systems to commercialisation partners including M Squared Lasers and ColdQuanta.
