The HiLASE Centre (acronym for High average power pulsed LASErs) is a scientific research centre of the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. It was established at the turn of August and September 2011.
In the years that followed, the HiLASE Centre has become an internationally recognised scientific facility, developing a new generation of high-power diode-pumped solid-state lasers that are used for a wide range of high-end industrial applications such as Laser Shock Peening, durability testing of optical components (Laser Induced Damage Threshold) and laser micromachining.
The HiLASE Centre has also set several world records during its ten-year existence.
In the development of advanced lasers and in industrial and scientific applications of lasers, we are already setting the direction and trends in the use of laser technology,” says Tomáš Mocek, Head of the HiLASE Centre.
