Raicol crystals will develops new and improved c-o and non-linear optical materials. Leysop will characterise them and design into novel modulating, switching and deflecting devices, while aot will integrate them in new highly advanced laser products.
Design, investigation and development of a system for the fast and cost-effective detection of soil pollution.
Design of a small-sized mobile satellite laser ranging system (slr) with a high capability to track fast-moving low earth orbiting satellites including the zenith zone. The main innovation is the pilot project of the semi-automated slr.
Creation of an extremely sensitive and reliable portable system to detect and analyse explosives agents for areas in danger of terrorist attack (e.G. Air transport, nuclear power plants), based on laser technologies.
Mafalda deals with two aspects of dedicated fibre lasers: (1) the development and valorisation of a low cost solution for specific micro-surgery applications and (2) showing the technology's reliability and capacity for dealing with demands from powerful modern medical and non-medical applications.
The project objective is the development, construction and optimisation of advanced laser renovation systems with automatic control of level cleaning and laser beam scanning.
To develop a safe, minimally invasive, cost efficient and clinically tested treatment of cancer that stimulates the immune defence, gives improved cure rates and prolonged survival. ilt is much less traumatic than standard surgery and has low production and treatment cost.
To build a 2-d laser system for material processing. There two main areas of innovation in the project: 1) development of a new type of high power laser ; 2) development of a very high performance linear motor; and 3) development of a high performance digital drive.
