Dr. Laurent Diehl has extensive experience in QCLs, having done his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Jérôme Faist, (ETH Zürich, co-inventor of the QC lasers), and having worked in Prof. Federico Capasso’s group at Harvard University for six years. He has co-authored more than 70 publications on the subject and played a critical role in the first demonstration of high performance MOCVD-grown QCLs. Dr. Diehl was also involved in the DARPA-funded project EMIL and in additional research projects relevant to high-power QCLs which include the elucidation of beam-steering mechanics. Dr. Diehl was a co-founder and CTO of Eos Photonics. At Pendar Technologies, he leads the development of high-power laser solutions.
