Application Development Lab

From UV to IR wavelengths, our applications development lab features over 20 different lasers, optics and motion control units. Send us your material for a free sample evaluation by our experts.

  • All laser wavelengths available for testing—including nanosecond to ultrafast pulse widths

Determine If Your Process Is Feasible

Our Applications Lab is our first step to providing you with a custom laser system that meets your manufacturing or research needs. We can determine most solutions through a free sample evaluation, but if your requirements are complex and require long-term research, we’ll offer you a contract.

We invite you to visit our Applications Lab, meet our engineers and see the most complete laser laboratory in the industry. Our facility even includes a research area where you can use our extensive in-house resources.
