Enabling diverse applications

Research applications that routinely make use of Lumentum ultrafast lasers include photocathode illumination (where an ultrafast laser seeds an amplifier to create an energetic pulse targeting a photocathode), plasma physics, light-initialized fusion, and disciplines involving the use of terawatt lasers.

Applications requiring single frequency, ultra-stable lasers with coherence lengths over 1 km benefit from the unique performance of the NPRO in fields such as gravitational wave study.
