The laser industry in Lithuania outstrips other traditional spheres of manufacturing. No other branch of industry in Lithuania dominates the world markets, whereas picosecond lasers created by lithuanians constitute half the market, femtosecond parametric light amplifiers account for as much as 80% of the global market. Lithuanian lasers are widely used in scientific research, introduced to industry and medicine.
