Summary
Lasers generate intense light beams that are coherent, monochromatic and highly collimated in nature.In comparison to other sources of light, laser beams are extremely pure with all of their photons (energy) having a fixed phase relationship with respect to each other.

Ultrafast lasers are considered on the basis of time durations between 1 picosecond to 100 femtoseconds. Over time, lasers have evolved to provide optical pulses that are arranged for a particular operation with high bit rates.

This report categorizes ultrafast lasers on the basis of their usage and day-to-day applications.In 2016, fiber lasers dominated the overall ultrafast laser market with a share of REDACTED, closely followed by diode-pumped lasers with a share of REDACTED.

Fiber lasers are most commonly used in materials processing, telecommunications, spectroscopy, healthcare and directed energy weapons operations. Due to its features, such as high optical quality, high output power and high vibration reliability, these lasers have replaced other traditional ultrafast lasers over the past few years.

Factors that support the growth of ultrafast lasers include their unmatched high-range intensity due to their low divergence angles as well as minimal energy loss during use. Although there are both large and small competitors in various regions, there are currently no substitutions for ultrafast lasers and this is expected to remain the case for the near future.
