Greetings from Washington State!

Greetings from the state of Washington! I am up here for my internship with Lockheed Martin. This location was originally a small business, Aculight, which Lockheed acquired in 2008, because of their groundbreaking work in high power fiber lasers. This site continues to make very high power fiber lasers, and I am fortunate enough to get to work here. While I’ve worked with lasers of several watts of power before, lasers that can burn holes into metal fit into a whole new category of dangerous, so a healthy respect and nervousness around the lasers┬áhere is almost essential to prevent accidents.
