New IPG ultrafast fibre lasers for research now available through Elliot Scientific

IPG Photonics has developed a range of green, infrared, and mid-IR high speed fibre and fiber-to-bulk hybrid lasers operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, making them ideal for scientific and medical research.

Ultrashort pulse durations between 10-11 and 10-13 seconds are generated by a master oscillator/ fibre power amplifier (MOFPA) architecture, and are particularly well suited for generating pulse energies from several microjoules to  about 1 mJ with repetition rates from 10 kHz to 3 MHz.

Elliot Scientific offers these pulsed lasers at various wavelengths, from UV to Mid-IR, allowing researchers to perform many different experiments. Material process engineering , such as flat panel displays; thin films; and semiconductor processing, can also benefit.

Features

  • Wide selection of wavelengths
  • Pulse energy is independent of PRR
  • Average power from 1 to 100 W
  • Pulse energy is independent of average power
  • PRR from 10 kHz to 3 MHz
  • Constant beam mode quality
  • Excellent pointing stability
  • Compact and efficient

Introducing Single Crystal Fibre Laser Systems – New products from Fibercryst

_DSC0714Elliot Scientific is pleased to introduce Fibercryst, the only manufacturer of short pulse lasers and amplifiers utilising the innovative Single Crystal Fibre technology (SCF).

Originally developed from a series of University research programs, the SCF technology has been refined and commercialised by Fibercryst and patented jointly with the Institut d’Optique, and offers significant performance advantages over existing technologies. The products range from a full featured femtosecond micromachining laser, through a stand alone commercial amplifier, to individual amplifier modules:

  • FEMTO is Fibercryst’s powerful industrial femtosecond pulse width laser offering output powers up to 25 W for high throughput, high quality micromachining. Based on Taranis technologies, pulse energies in excess of 80 µJ (@ 100 kHz) in pulse widths of less than 900 fs can be generated along with repetition rates selectable between 100 kHz and 2 MHz.
  • Taranis Amplifier Systems are designed for a wide range of seed lasers providing either fibre coupled or free propagation mode inputs. The Taranis amplifier boosts a laser’s high average power, high peak power (up to 30 MW) and high pulse energy to free space.
  • Taranis Laser Gain Modules are a unique solution to provide high peak power and high energy amplification using a simple and compact design. By using a single-crystal with a long length and a small diameter, short pulse amplification delivering a high intensity, linearly polarised laser light with superb beam quality and adjustable repetition rate can be achieved.
  • Sub-nanosecond mJ laser: Fibercryst also offers an affordable, unique 1064 nm sub-ns laser system delivering more than 3 MW of peak power for use in research and test labs. Designed using MOPA architecture as a standalone unit combining a commercial 500 ps seed laser with the Fibercryst Taranis amplifier, it takes full advantage of the technology to provide a polarised beam, TEM00 output and 2 mJ of pulse energy for applications in LIBS, LIDAR & nonlinear optics; Supercontinuum, OPO, THz generation; and the biosciences.

For more information about these new innovative products, please contact us, or visit the Fibercryst pages on our website.

FEMTOLASERS Expands Ranges – Releases CEP4 and New Datasheets

FEMTOLASERS have announced the latest generation in their Carrier Envelope Phase programme. CEP4 is now available on the new Rainbow Oscillator.

Offering a direct feed-forward approach, the CEP drift is corrected on-the-fly after the free-running, passively stable FEMTOSOURCE™ rainbow™ ultrafast oscillator. Zero phase slip, i.e., a train of pulses with identical waveform, is now as easy to obtain as any other slip rate. Unprecedented performance and reliability, both short- and long-term, are ensured by the new CEP4 stabilisation operation.

The fusion™ range, now with the largest variety of models on the market, can meet any ultrafast application: average powers ranging from 150 mW to 1.2 W and pulse durations of sub-9 fs yield peak powers of over 1 MW. Low cost of ownership is guaranteed by outstanding efficiency. State-of-the-art laser parameters are offered at lower pump power levels when compared to all its counterparts.

Datasheets for all laser products and accessories have been revised for 2012 and are now available for download on our website.
