Laser beam lines were developed and installed by the Group for the RIKEN research institute.
Thanks to its expertise in producing defence and space solutions, Thales is able to provide sub-systems and components for scientific and industrial applications. The products are directly provided by Thales or its partners including Bossa Nova Vision (USA), Sound & Bright (USA), and Silios (France). In Japan, Thales also supplies opto-mechanical products for space and astronomy optics.
Thales provides its expertise as a world leader in the design, development and manufacturing of high energy nanosecond lasers and high intensity, ultra-short Titanium-sapphire femtosecond lasers.
In 2013, the Japanese research institute RIKEN awarded Thales with a contract for the development and installation of two (peak power of 500TW each) laser beam lines for advanced research in science.
Thales is a world leading designer and manufacturer of high-end, challenging optical components and systems tailored to customer needs. Click for more information.
Radio frequency (RF) & Microwave
Thales is supplying RF power components as large size electron tubes for fusion, particle accelerators and nuclear physics. With over sixty years of experience in microwave tubes, Thales provides technologies for scientific applications and also recently medical applications (cancer treatment) area usage is increasing.
