Laser Technologies Research and Application Center (LATARUM) was established in 2005 with interdisciplinary cooperation to obtain product based on projects, to train personnel with at highest academic level with knowledge to use latest technology. There are electro-optics, laser material processing and modelling and simulation groups working on projects. Theoretical modeling studies are performed for x-ray laser media. Ne-like nickel and iron and Ni-like tin and molybdenum x-ray laser media for different pumping laser configurations have been modeled using EHYBRID. Theoretical and experimental studies on spectrometer design for wavelength range between X-ray and IR are carried out by electro-optic group. Material processing studies using Nd-YAG laser are performed. Materials of titanium, aluminum and stainless steel have been welded in different laser pulse, power, and repetition rate conditions. Optimum parameters for these welding processes have been obtained.
