At this year’s IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards, SIMTech emerged as one of the winners in the Applied Research and Development category. The team received the award for their project on high power mid-infrared fibre lasers.
The fibre laser is a complex equipment that is used in manufacturing for greater precision and better performance, allowing for greener and sustainable processes. By employing specialty fibre technologies, SIMTech’s team of researchers achieved the highest pulse energy in their laser emitting at mid-infrared wavelength with an all-fibre configuration. The team also built up local capabilities in optical design, optical fibre fabrication and fibre laser system development.
IES’s annual awards recognise engineering projects that make exceptional contributions to enhance the quality of life and bring about engineering progress in Singapore. For more information on the IES Prestigious Engineering Achievement Awards 2017, click here.
