Emerging applications of fiber lasers in manufacturing, spectroscopy, precision metrology and microwave photonics call for significant improvements in power levels, spectral bandwidths, stability and noise than currently attainable from fiber technology. We present here some of our recent research in these areas comprising: coherent addition of ultrafast lasers, mid IR sources,  frequency combs aimed at below 10-18 relative frequency stability,  as well as ultra-low noise tunable microwave sources.

Martin Fermann received his Ph.D. from Southampton University, U. K. in 1988. He has been with IMRA since 1992, where he is currently serving as Vice President for Research and Advanced Development. He has been an author or co-author of around 400 technical papers and conference presentations and more than 150 US patents and applications. Many of his patents have been licensed by third parties. He has been active in the committees of numerous technical conferences and served as General Chair for the Conference on Advanced Solid State Lasers. His main interests comprise ultrafast optics, frequency combs, microwave photonics, precision spectroscopy and metrology, fiber and solid-state lasers. He is a fellow of the Optical Society of America.
