The use of 1.5 and 2 µm for laser weapons offers several advantages versus other wavelengths. Both are known as eye-safe wavelength, which limits risks with unwanted signal reflections. Thulium and Holmium also offer high conversion efficiency. iXblue has delivered several key players in this area with double or triple clad Erbium, Thulium, Holmium or co-doped Thulium/Holmium fibers.
