Optics Valley Technical Series: High Power and High Energy Fiber Lasers for Doppler LiDAR and Sensing


Dr. Mehmetcan Akbulut, Director at NP Photonics Inc., will deliver this technical presentation on “High Power and High Energy Fiber Lasers for Doppler LiDAR and Sensing”.

In this technical presentation, Dr. Akbulut will describe the latest developments and products for the single-frequency, transform-limited laser market. Potential applications such as coherent Doppler LiDAR, fiber sensing, metrology and quantum science will be interested in learning the results for both high average power and high energy CW and pulsed systems.
