Wet paint thickness sensor LVF has developed and patented a complete solution to measure in real-time paint thickness for coil coating and metallic packaging Targazh (Targazh Systems Optical Thickness Sensor)
mid-IR ellipsometry, mid-IR OCT Leukos and LVF are associated to propose robust, efficient and cost-effective mid-infrared supercontinuum laser sources: Electro-MIR
Glass cutting 2.8 µm is the most relevant wavelength to cut glass. A 100 W CW laser emitting @2.8 µm is under development.
Plastic cutting 3.5 µm is a very relevant wavelength to cut plastic. 5 W CW laser already allows plastic cutting.
Thanks to its low Fresnel losses (4% typical, 1% with AR coating) and its high transmission up to 5.5 µm, InF3 fibers are the natural solution for QCL/ICL pigtailing.
