GWU-Lasertechnik is a German manufacturer of tunable laser systems as well as a sales and service organization for optical components, lasers and laser accessories. As a pioneer, GWU introduced the first commercial BBO Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) worldwide to the market in 1989. Three decades later, based on its vast expertise in non-linear optics, GWU manufactures matured frequency conversion modules, providing widely tunable radiation for q-switched high-energy lasers as well for ultrafast psec and fsec devices.
The broad portfolio is completed by laser crystals and non-linear crystals, periodically-poled frequency converters and waveguides as well as electro- and acousto-optical components and fiber lasers. Due to its competence and superior service, GWU has established a broad base of satisfied customers in the industrial branch as well as in scientific research facilities worldwide.
GWU’s dedicated service helps to find the best core components for your application. Since GWU is not only a distributor but also a well-known manufacturer of laser devices, a wide knowledge and in-field experience can be shared to the advantage of its customers.
Our Portfolio includes:
Its vast expertise in non-linear optics enables GWU to provide tailored solutions for generating and manipulating ultra-short laser pulses at almost any wavelength. The Ultrafast Harmonic Generator (UHG) series is a flexible psec and fsec laser source for versatile applications. Complete automation for hands-free operation and integrated pulse picking are optionally available. The complete functional range is integrated in one compact box.
Based on non-linear crystals, GWU develops and manufactures frequency conversion devices for q-switched Nd:YAG lasers. The 5th generation of BBO-OPOs has been completely re-designed. The primoScan OPO Series are high-energy devices, tunable from DUV to Mid-IR for versatile applications. An innovative automation concept allows for fast wavelength tuning with high precision covering the entire range. Even higher efficiencies can be obtained due to the new optical layout.
GWU offers all common laser crystals and standard optical non-linear crystals with a broad variety of specifications. Beside these well-established materials, innovative crystals with outstanding properties, including periodically-poled frequency converters, for e. g. deep-UV generation or high-power ultrashort pulse lasers are available. The assortment is completed by optical components (lenses, windows, …), high-quality optical isolators as well as acousto- and electro-optic devices.
