LIC Engineering is one of the world’s leading providers of Extreme Pulse for Pico-nano seconds rise time with KA peak current. Models LSP-, LS-, & LD- series are designed mostly for energy applications and have been used for many defense, space companies and laboratories in the US. LIC Engineering also specialize in compact & very high efficient switch-mode laser power supplies.
In 1986, Inoue founded LIC Engineering (formerly Laser Innovations Corp.) in Sunnyvale, CA to manufacture and market Super Pulse & Ballastless CO2 laser power supply?developed in early 1980 by Inoue. In the 1990s, LIC Engineering introduced its first flat-type water cooled CO2 laser power supply, the CSF-series. In the mid ’90s, the company introduced cost effective 600W/1KW CPF-series and the highest power of 25KW CSF-25000PD & CSF-25000/8. These CSF-& CPF series are the most popular and long run products among our products line. Since the company introduced the first water cooled power supply in the late ’80s, the company has continued to manufacture the high efficient soft switching and unique water cooled CO2, Yag, and Capacitor charging laser power supply.
LIC Engineering is also the pioneering company for the QCW LD-Drivers and Super Pulse for laser diode applications.:
In 2005, the company introduced the first high peak current, fast rise time and ultra high QCW power laser diode drivers,LD-1500/3000, and LSP-500, that were capable of LSP (LIC Super Pulse) and 15KW QCW power. On those day there were very few companies who make the QCW laser diode power supplies. Now LIC Engineering has wide variety of LD Driver/Gas Discharge product line:
LSP-XXXX-series high voltage, high power, high speed laser diode drivers can achieve 5KA/15KV/20ns pulse width with the rise time of 100ps-15ns.
LD-XXXX & LWG-XXXX/QCW-series high speed, high current, high QCW laser diode drivers have the output power to 1KA/1KV/1MW of QCW power and 25KW of CW power.
LS-XXXX-series high frequency, high pulsed current laser diode driver/gas discharge power supply can achieve the pulse rate up to 5MHz with pulse width of 5ns-100ns and CW power up to 8KW.
