Date Announced: 23 May 2012
IP covers optical system with user-defined flexibility.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - May 23, 2012) - Mobius Photonics, an innovative producer of short pulsed fiber laser sources (IR, UV, and visible wavelengths), has been granted a United States patent for "Tailored Pulse Burst." The patent number is 8,160,113.
The patent covers a unique optical system that can produce user-specified bursts of laser pulses tailored in pulse heights, pulse widths, and pulse spacings. Unlike some technologies, the system does not require an acousto-optic modulator or internal Q-switch.
The invention has particular relevance for applications requiring a simple laser system that produces consistent, high-quality pulse bursts that can be customized for different processes. Potential applications range from high-pulse-energy materials processing to laser direct imaging and solar panel processing.
"We're pleased to announce that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has granted us the 'tailored pulse burst' patent," said Kiyomi Monro, Mobius CEO. "Using this technology, we are able to offer laser systems with flexible design and output capabilities. These unique systems could allow us to expand into a wider application space than we currently serve."
