Work Group 5
The main goal of WG5 components Group led by Civan is to develop components that will provide enhanced reliability for 24/7 operation, cost effectiveness, and of course, improved laser-material interaction performance characteristics.
The components Working Group (WG5) focuses at the development of various critical fiber-optic components that aimed to be incorporated in CW and pulsed-high power fiber lasers. It includes various types of critical fiber-optics components such as: PM pump combiner, pump strippers, high power end caps, mode-field adaptors (MFA). It also include other components critical for HP laser operation: Isolators, SHG crystals and adiabatic process, development of high power dielectric coating capabilities, FBG, Photonic Light Circuit (PLC), dynamic beam shaping as well as design and fabrication of beam shaping elements.
