In 1995 Dr. Róbert Szipõcs - the inventor of chirped mirrors
- and his colleagues at the Research Institute for Solid State
Physics Budapest Hungary and at JATE University Szeged
Hungary founded the R&D Lézer-Optika Inc. the predecessor
of the R&D Ultrafast Lasers Ltd. Their aim was to put their
scientific knowledge and experience into practice and to
develop optical thin film components for high performance
compact femtosecond laser sources.
We at R&D Ultrafast Lasers Ltd. are constructing and manufacturing
tunable femtosecond pulse lasers such as Ti:sapphire lasers, femtosecond
pulse Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPO-s) and fixed wavelength, sub-ps pulse
Yb-fiber lasers and amplifiers for applications in nonlinear microscopy, such as
two-photon excitation fluorescence (TFEF), second-harmonic generation (SHG)
and coherent anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) microscopy.
