How Are Industrial Lasers Cooled?

There are several varieties of industrial lasers. Some lasers, such as fiber lasers, have specific arrangements that enable spreading the heat they generate over a larger surface area. This arrangement gives fiber lasers better cooling characteristics over other media. Other lasers need extra cooling arrangements to remove the heat they generate. For example, ion lasers generate extreme heat when active and need elaborate cooling methods. Other lasers, emitting energy in the microwave and far-infrared Read more [...]
