In the first phase, the plant will produce 5,000 laser tubes per year. Laser tubes require advanced technology for production and are used in all hospital equipment for laser imaging and in laser cutting in different industries.
Inauguration of the production line makes Iran the third country with the technology to produce laser tubes. The United States and China are other countries which possess this hi-tech industry.

Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said in 2015 that the country's eye-catching progress in building different laser equipment promises a bright future for Iran's laser industry.

The nation has taken positive steps in producing disk, fiber and semiconductor lasers, Salehi said.

He said that laser could widely be used for demining of the lands as well as jamming the enemy radars.

Bright future is awaiting for Iran in laser sector, Salehi added.

Also, in December 2014, Salehi announced that AEOI experts had built 7 new state-of-the-art laser systems for medical applications.

"These laser systems include holmium lasers and second harmonic laser systems with applications in prostate surgery and kidney stone crusher machine, erbium laser and bio-di laser systems for dentistry, a fractional laser system to help the treatment process of skin diseases and a laser therapy machine with applications in physiotherapy," Salehi said in a message to the 'Laser Constructions Congress' in Tehran.

"And we are now trying to transfer the technology for building these laser systems to the knowledge-based companies for mass-production," he added.
