LEMRC Awarded Prestigious EPSRC Litron Laser


We are extremely proud and pleased the LEMRC (Laser Engineering & Manufacturing Research Centre) Chester have been awarded the prestigious NSL4 laser system currently at the EPSRC laser loan pool.
LEMRC-LogoThe ultra high power Litron 10J pulsed Nd:YAG laser system will be used for continuing research into Laser Shock Peening (LSP) of ceramic materials. This laser will also be employed to give the LEMRC wavelength flexibility for other research projects.
Dr. Pratik Shukla, in collaboration with fellow LEMRC members Prof. Jonathan Lawrence, Dr. David Waugh and University of Manchester collaborators Prof. Lin Li and Dr. Zhu Liu will be employing this laser system in the new bespoke facility at the University of Chester and access will be provided for companies and fellow academics who would like to make use of the laser.
Everyone at Litron wishes everyone at the LEMRC all the success in the future in this exciting new venture.
