We also manufacture our own products: powerful DPSS lasers, picoecond lasers, laser drivers and laser coolers.
1996 - Saint-Petersburg ELectronics and Lasers (SPELL), Inc. was founded by group of scientists from Ioffe Physico-Technical Institute (Russian Academy of Science) having background in diode laser and solid state laser physics.
For several years the firm was cooperating with Laser Fare, Providence, USA. As a result, a novel grating coupled surface emitting laser diodes had been developed.
Some laser technologies and laser equipment had been developed and manufactured by IT: CO2 laser cutting station for printing industry (for Creative Coating, Charlotte, NC, USA), Nd:YAG laser glass etching stations for artistic imaging, Nd:YAG laser stations for metal sheet cutting, etc.
Since 2003 Energy-Space serves as distributor of Northrop Grumman Cutting Edge Optronics in Russia and since 2012 also of Northrop Grumman Synoptics.
For last 5 years the firm is involved in R&D work on DPSS lasers with main focus on pulsed lasers of high intensity and air cooled lasers.
As an example, a 0.3J & 100Hz& 20 ns MOPA architecture DPSS near single mode laser was built for Ioffe Institute, which is being now used in nanotechnology. Another example, a 1000Hz near single mode pulsed “green” 16 mJ&10 ns DPSS laser for pumping Ti: sapphire amplifier is now under construction.
The firm has a small production facility; the firm's staff consists of 4 permanent individuals, more people sometimes are hired on contact basis.
President of IT is PHD Alexander Volkov.
