TRUMPF Scientific Lasers

As a leader in innovation and technology, TRUMPF Scientific Lasers focuses on ultrafast lasers demanding simultaneously high average power and high pulse energy.

Exploiting TRUMPF‘s know-how in thin-disk based industrial lasers, we manufacture the next-generation laser sources with superior performance, designed for enhanced reliability and robustness.

Our core product, the Dira series, delivers femtosecond and picosecond pulses with energies ranging from few mJ to above 0.5 J. Combined with our Herz series for nonlinear compression, we can achieve pulse durations below 40 fs and kW of average power.
