Company Description

Light Conversion is a leading manufacturer of wavelength tunable femtosecond laser sources based on TOPAS and ORPHEUS series of optical parametric amplifiers (OPA) as well as diode pumped solid state femtosecond lasers PHAROS and CARBIDE.

PHAROS, the most versatile femtosecond laser amplifier on the market, and the ultra-compact and cost-efficient CARBIDE feature market-leading output parameters along with robust design attracting industrial and scientific customers. PHAROS reliability has been proven by multiple systems working for years in production lines at 24/7 regime. Main applications include drilling and cutting of different metals, ceramics, sapphire, glass, material ablation for mass-spectrometry, etc. Among the customers are major manufactures in display, automotive, LED, medical device industries and others.

Our laser amplifiers are complimented by a strong portfolio of ultrafast products: harmonics modules (provide femtosecond pulses at 515, 343, 257 and 206 nm), OPAs (producing continuous tuning output from ≈190 nm up to ≈20 μm), HARPIA and CHIMERA spectrometers, TiPA and GECO autocorrelators.

Change in management at Light Conversion

There have been some changes at LIGHT CONVERSION, a manufacturer of lasers and laser systems. After 25 years of running the company, Dr. Algirdas Juozapavičius is assigning the helm to Dr. Martynas Barkauskas. Dr. Algirdas Juozapavičius will continue as adviser to the company's management.

After the intensive work that lasted a quarter of a century, time has come to devote more attention to the family and activities that I haven't had the time for, said Dr. Algirdas Juozapavičius.

Dr. Algirdas Juozapavičius has been the head of the company that makes lasers for research, industry, and medicine, since its inception in 1994. The business was born out of research work developing innovative light technology. The physicist and a few other likeminded peers founded a company that has been putting Lithuania's name and the achievements of the researchers working at it on the map for twenty-five years already with its work. Under Dr. Juozapavičius, LIGHT CONVERSION has been awarded various business trophies.

In 2018 alone, the company earned two innovation awards: a national one from the Lithuanian Innovation Centre, and an international prize from the Baltic Assembly and the Baltic Assembly and the Baltic Association of Science/Technology Parks and Innovation Centres.

The company has been acclaimed for its ample investments into research and experimental development, for the development and production of high-value products, and for its enormous potential to grow on international markets. The company has been repeatedly awarded the export, Product of the Year trophies and various international innovation prizes.

The company's new CEO, Dr. Martynas Barkauskas, began his career in LIGHT CONVERSION back in 2009, when he worked as an engineer constructor at the Laser Department; later, he became head of the Laser Department's service team, and in 2014 became the head of the Sales Department. In 2009, he defended a thesis in the field of physical science titled "Kinetic Spectroscopy of Nonlinear Crystals and Photochromic Switches" and was awarded a doctoral degree of science.

The year 2019 is a time of change at LIGHT CONVERSION. There have been some changes in the company's management as well: the company's board was appointed with Professor Emeritus Habil. Dr. Algis Petras Piskarskas and Dr. Romualdas Danielius, Mykolas Juozapavičius, Marc Watremez, Dominykas Vizbaras as its members.

femtosecond lasers E

PHAROS is a femtosecond laser system combining millijoule pulse energies and high average powers. PHAROS features a mechanical and optical design optimized for industrial applications such as precise material processing. Compact size, integrated thermal stabilization system and sealed design allow PHAROS integration into machining workstations. The use of solid state laser diodes for pumping of Yb medium significantly reduces maintenance cost and provides long laser lifetime.

Tunable PHAROS parameters include: pulse duration (190 fs – 20 ps), repetition rate (single pulse to 1 MHz), pulse energy (up to 2 mJ) and average power (up to 20 W). Its deliverable power is sufficient for most of material processing applications at high machining speeds. The built-in pulse picker allows convenient control of the laser output in pulse on demand mode. The compact and robust optomechanical design features of PHAROS lead to stable laser operation in varying environments.

optical parametric amplifiers E

Optical Parametric Amplifiers made by Light Conversion set the industry standard for more than 25 years. TOPAS series devices pumped by Ti:Sapphire lasers and ORPHEUS series pumped by Ytterbium based solid state or fiber lasers are capable of producing 190 nm to 20 µm tunable wavelength output, are reliable and simple to use, while still flexible for custom and most demanding applications. Input and output parameters can be chosen in widest range possible in the market. With our standard products, it is possible to combine both – short pulse and narrow bandwidth – optically synchronized pulses. Light Conversion can deliver complete spectroscopic laser systems with high temporal or spectral resolution using multi-beam setups.

spectrometers E

The capabilities of the femtosecond spectroscopy system HARPIA are:

- Femtosecond transient absorption / reflection

- Femtosecond multi-pulse transient absorption/reflection measurements

- Femtosecond fluorescence upconversion

- Hundred picoseconds-to-microsecond time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC)

- Automated measurements of intensity dependence of transient absorption and time-resolved fluorescence signal

- Time-resolved femtosecond stimulated Raman scattering (FSRS) experiments

- Flash photolysis

All-inclusive HARPIA system can provide an extensive comprehension of the intricate photophysical and photochemical properties of the investigated samples.

Switching between different experimental realizations is fully automated and requires very little user interference. The optical layout of HARPIA system is refined to offer both an incredibly small footprint and an easy and intuitive user experience. HARPIA is easily customizable and can be tailored for specific measurement needs.
