|Sirah Laser- und Plasmatechnik GmbH is founded by Dr. Paulus Jauernik, Christa Gerigk-Jauernik and Dr. Sven Hädrich. Sirah operates from Kaarst Germany.
|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.
|Sirah’s first fully digital Autotracker.
|Sirah Control 2 software with full LabVIEW integration.
|Sum Frequency Mixing of pulsed dyes lasers. Mixing after doubling for pulsed dye lasers.
|Sirah moves into new premises in Kaarst.
|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.
|Pulsed dye lasers are now built on a steel base plate for improved precision. Mid Infra-Red Generation of pulsed dye laser pulses with Silver-Gallium-Arsenide crystals.
|Pulsed dye amplification of cw radiation, first commercial system with intgerated SBS cell.
|Introduction of the Matisse ring laser series with full digital control (US patent 7,489,715).
|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.
|Fibre-coupled reference cells for Matisse TS and Matisse DS systems. Matisse with integrated wavemeter.
|Introduction of the Credo, the only dye laser specifically designed for high repetition rate applications.
|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.
|Next generation CobraStretch.
|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.
|Introduction of the new MixTrain series by sum and difference frequency mixing of the Matisse laser with fiber lasers to extend the wavelength range.
|Takeover and further development of the CW doubler WaveTrain from Spectra Physics.
|Introduction of the new Matisse C series, a more compact Matisse laser system that uses only TiSa as laser medium.
|Introduction of the Boston500 YAG laser for pumping dye lasers.
|Next generation WaveTrain 3D with digital electronics.
|New generation of the MixTrain 2 with larger tuning ranges and more automation
|Appointment of Dr. Clemens Wünsche as General Manager of Sirah Lasertechnik GmbH.
