Selection and set-up of laser sources and laser diode modules


Innovations in laser-source technologies are driving the development of new applications in markets such as the food industry, material processing, research, medical and life sciences.

Working closely with leading manufacturers ensures that Acal BFi’s team of photonics specialists has access to a broad choice of laser source technologies. This, combined with the photonics team’s expertise and experience, can help you make informed decisions by matching the price, output and performance of potential laser sources against the parameters of your own application.

Expertise and experience

Our experience in laser sources covers applications in ultrafast physics, high-speed telecommunications, food labelling, aeronautic cabling, ultra-precision micromachining of medical stents, automotive assembly lines and more.

With this level of expertise and technology, we can help you take lasers into new applications and new markets and to develop products which are inherently more compact and reliable.

Benchmark technologies

Our product range includes standard laser sources as well as benchmark and emerging technologies.

  • Laser diodes.
  • Collimated laser diode modules.
  • Industrial lasers (fibre lasers, COand DPSS lasers).
  • Life-science and scientific lasers (picosecond and femtosecond pulses, broadly tunable lasers, and laser-based spectrometers and instruments).
