|1998||Sirah Laser- und Plasmatechnik GmbH is founded by Dr. Paulus Jauernik, Christa Gerigk-Jauernik and Dr. Sven Hädrich. Sirah operates from Kaarst Germany.|
|1999||Introduction of Sirah’s highly succsefull dye laser models the PrecisionScan, Cobra-Stretch, and Cobra. These lasers set new standards with regards to ease of use, efficiency and reliability.
Sirah enters a worldwide distribution agreement with Spectra-Physics Inc., USA.
|2000||Sirah’s first fully digital Autotracker.|
|2001||Sirah Control 2 software with full LabVIEW integration.|
|2002||Sum Frequency Mixing of pulsed dyes lasers. Mixing after doubling for pulsed dye lasers. Sirah moves into new premises in Kaarst.|
|2003||The Sirah Near Infra-Red Optical Parametrical Amplifier unit (OPANIR) is designed to generate powerful laser pulses in the wavelength range from 1.4 to 4.2 µm. Based on a difference frequency mixing stage, the output energy is boosted by a second stage.|
|2004||Pulsed dye lasers are now built on a steel base plate for improved precision.
Mid Infrared Mixing of pulsed dye laser pulses with Silver-Gallium-Arsenide crystals.
|2005||Pulsed dye amplification of cw radiation, first commerical system with intgerated SBS cell.|
|2006||Introduction of the Matisse ring laser series with fully digital control (US patent 7,489,715).|
|2007||Introduction of the EagleEye Optical Spectrum Analyser Cavity. First high repetition rate version of the Cobra system. Matisse lasers with Pound-Drever-Hall based stabilization scheme.|
|2008||Fibre-coupled reference cells for Matisse TS/DS systems. Matisse with integrated wavemeter.|
|2009||Introduction of the Credo, the only dye laser specifically designed for high repetition rate applications.|
|2010||Next generation PrecisionScan with smaller footprint. Grating lift for all grazing incidence resonators (Patent pending). Sirah Control 3 is introduced, a completely modular control software for pulsed dye lasers.
Demonstration of 10 W output Matisse Titanium:Sapphire laser.
Demonstration of SFG in periodically poled crystals.
|2011||Next generation Cobra-Stretch.|
|2012||Moved into new premises in Grevenbroich. Total office and labspace tripled. Company name is changed into Sirah Lasertechnik GmbH to reflect the focus on laser technology.|
