Read our latest article on Physics World to understand what makes our VALO femtosecond lasers unlike any other and how the new partnership between VALO Innovations and HÜBNER Photonics will give increased access to new femtosecond laser technology to many exciting applications!
Oliver Prochnow, CEO of VALO Innovations, tells Physics World about his experience now that he’s a part of HÜBNER Photonics and why a complementary offering in the ultrashort-pulse regime is the perfect addition to the HÜBNER Photonics portfolio of high performance lasers. Hannover-based VALO Innovations represents an intriguing diversification opportunity, with proprietary fibre-laser technology and unique short-pulse performance (pulse lengths of less than 50 fs, up to peak powers above 2 MW) opening up new ultrafast applications in bioimaging, spectroscopy and optogenetics. “We are extremely excited to add the unique fs laser technology of VALO Innovations to our group. Their innovative mind-set, engineering capabilities and customer orientation make a perfect fit” adds Head of HÜBNER Photonics, Dr. Håkan Karlsson.
The true advantage of the VALO femtosecond lasers is, in broad terms, a unique way to control all phase contributions that affect pulse quality. This means there is now a way to generate very clean and extremely short pulse durations without any additional nonlinear broadening after the laser.
