Fiber lasers for scientific purposes

Fiber lasers have been implemented into a range of various applications, including atomic physics, atoms cooling, plasma acceleration, etc. Fiber laser systems have taken an active part in the development of these technologies and provided up-to-date ultra-precise devices. This article will discuss several scientific spheres where fiber lasers have found their applications.Fiber lasers for scientific purposes

Fiber laser systems’ requirements

Research and scientific fields need correctly designed and specialized equipment. Fiber lasers have to comply with the specific requirements due to the environments, taking into account the fact that laboratory conditions can differ from the real ones. However, scientists are always calculating situations that are close to reality, taking into account maximum permissible errors or tolerances.

Laser modules have all qualities that are necessary for all laser applications whether for industry or for laboratory. For example, operation stability and remote control provide high performance rates for any specialists. Moreover, fiber laser systems are easy-to-use in achieving scientific purposes in comparison with other devices.

Fiber lasers in atom cooling process

Fundamental physics has gained many opportunities due to the ability of cooling atoms to ultra-cold temperatures.

Cooling of the molecular gasses with fiber lasers is a challenging process that is difficult to perform because of the molecular structures’ complexity. The lastly developed technologies of the molecules cooling have made it possible to improve their precise control that results in making the interaction processes better.

Thus, fiber lasers systems have a great impact on this field of research. The understanding of the molecules’ interaction has allowed specialists to put chemistry reactions under control. Moreover, it has influenced the advancement of quantum materials.

Ultrafast fiber lasers for nonlinear optics

Ultrafast fiber lasers are used as a part of the multiphoton device for a number of spheres, including multiphoton microscopy, dual-comb spectroscopy, etc. A multiphoton microscope is a device that exploits the principle of nonlinear optics to create contrast in a sample. The multiphoton technique applies the nonlinear optics for samples’ imaging and making 3D images. Due to these processes, specialists have achieved better 3D imaging.

Along with the scientific research activities, this technology is especially beneficial in medicine where it helps in diagnosis of diseases and identification of material properties. Thus, it is applied for identifying various types of cancer, for example, for esophageal and pancreatic cancers.

Fiber laser systems for plasma physics

The majority of studies related to atomic physics are based on the interaction of two components: atoms and light. Fiber lasers have become a usual instrument in experiments of atomic physics. All questions connected to nuclear fusion processes such as nuclear reactions that occur in plasma, development in laser ion sources have received a great interest due to the gaining potential of this technology.

In plasma physics technology fiber lasers are applied as parts of plasma accelerators. Plasma accelerator is a sophisticated device that applies electric fields developed in plasma waves excited by intense fiber laser pulses. Such types of accelerators have proved to be extremely space-saving sources of energetic particles and radiation.

Plasma qualities depend on a number of parameters that are participating in its creation. Laser modules’ characteristics, irradiation conditions and the target parameters create the certain processes occurring in generated plasmas. It is also important to monitor the plasma condition constantly due to its short life. The specialized detectors provide full details of plasma characteristics, including its density, temperature, etc.

Fiber lasers have greatly contributed to plasma accelerators’ production. So, they have found their implementations in high energy physics, biological and medical sciences, etc. And there is still space for further research and innovations.

In recent years fiber lasers have proved to be an essential part in scientific fields, including the above-mentioned applications. The evolving role of science in many spheres demonstrates the growth of interest in scientific research activities of fiber laser systems.
