Mobius Photonics Granted U.S. Patent for Unique Fiber-Based Laser System

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. - Mobius Photonics, an innovative producer of short pulsed fiber laser sources (IR, green, and UV laser), has been granted a United States patent for "Fiber MOPA System without Stimulated Brillouin Scattering." The patent number is 8,009,705.

The patent covers an optical fiber-based master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA) system that avoids stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS). SBS is a spontaneous phenomenon of light scattering that can occur in an optical fiber, reducing a fiber laser system's optical power. Mobius' methods for overcoming SBS enable a system that produces high-peak-power, square pulses that are efficiently wavelength converted to desired wavelengths. The invention has particular relevance for applications such as materials processing that demand robust fiber-based systems capable of producing high-quality, high-peak-power, green or UV pulses.

"We are delighted that United States Patent and Trademark Office has accepted our patent on a fiber MOPA system without SBS," said Kiyomi Monro, Mobius CEO. "Mobius plans to continue to invest in expanding our intellectual property portfolio by leveraging our unique company culture of research and innovation."
