Single Crystal Fiber Lasers are in the news: Taranis covered by Laser Focus World

Fibercryst’s ultra-fast lasers and amplifiers utilise their revolutionary Taranis Single Crystal Fibre (SCF) modules to enable higher energy per pulse, higher average power, and easy to use flexibility between energy and repetition rate, and better beam qualities from small footprint devices.

In this month’s Laser Focus World magazine, an in-depth article about Fibercryst’s innovative Single Crystal Fiber amplification technology has been published. You can read Single crystal fibers amplify power in ultrashort-pulse lasers here.

Industrial Laser

OutputEndTaranis technology is the heart of the Fibercyst FEMTO, a powerful industrial femtosecond pulse width laser for high quality micromachining, offering output powers up to 25 W for high throughput.

Typical applications include: cutting and drilling of hard materials, cold machining polymers or composites, and micromachining / structuring of surfaces, especially glass, ceramics and sapphire. A key feature of this laser is the ability to easily and quickly change the repetition rate to favour the average power or the energy per pulse.

Seed Amplifier

The Taranis Amplifier System is a stand-alone add-on unit that allows a developer to increase the power and energy output of an existing laser installation.

The amplifier design also incorporates Fibercryst’s unique Taranis technology – a single crystal fibre amplifier ideal for short pulse amplification that delivers a high intensity, linearly polarised laser beam with superb quality and adjustable repetition rate.

The amplifier accepts a wide range of fibre-coupled or free propagation mode seed lasers, boosting them to a higher average power, higher peak power (up to 30 MW) and higher pulse energy. Output is to free space.
