AA OPTO-ELECTRONIC IN A NEW EUROPEAN PROJECT…
Making ultrafast lasers faster
Lasers with ultrashort pulses in the picosecond and femtosecond range are often referred to as ultrafast lasers. They are known for their ultra-precise ablation and cutting results. Unfortunately, processing with such lasers takes time. To address this issue, a new research project, funded by the European Commission, aims to make material processing with ultrafast lasers up to a hundred times faster.
About AA Opto Electronic
AA OPTO-ELECTRONIC proposes one of the most complete range of standard Acousto-optic components and associated Radio frequency drivers. AO devices cover wavelengths from 180 nm to 11 µm. These products are available for rapid delivery in any quantity. In case you do not find a product which follows your need, then we will be pleased to study a custom device.
The range of RF drivers cover from DC to 3 GHz and up to 500 W. These drivers are matched to AO devices. AA also propose a large range of customized electronics as well as microwave passive components and broadband power amplifiers up to 50 GHz, 1 KW.
AA was founded in 1979, under the name «Automates et Automatismes». It became a limited company in 1988 under the new name of AA Sa, specialising in acousto-optic components and their associated RF drivers. AA is a world leader in the manufacturing of quality Acousto-optic and radio frequency devices. Close collaboration with universities and research institutes, provided invaluable knowledge and experience in the design and manufacturing processes of Acousto-optic devices and radio-frequency sources. Continuous R&D keeps pace with advances in laser and electronic technology to ensure AA continues to offer state-of-the-arts products. AA offers its customers solutions from prototype design to large volume manufacturing thanks to its internal resources and In-house capabilities. Our Headquarter is located in ORSAY, near Paris in France. This is also our optical manufacturing center. All RF drivers are manufactured in our St Avertin plant, located 200 kms south of Paris.
