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.

Non-contact Visible Fault Location in fibre added to OZ Optics range
OZ Optics has expanded its range of Visible Fibre Optic Fault Locators with the addition of a benchtop non-contact tester, the ideal solution for inspecting devices with no connectors on the fibre ends. Visible Fibre Optic Fault Locators launch either 520 or 635 nm laser diode light into a fibre to enable discovery of breaks or sharp bends, which are revealed by the resulting scattered light emerging from the sides of the cable.
Fault locators are now available in four models: two benchtop and two portable…
- Benchtop Non-Contact, for CW and pulsed operation
- Benchtop CW High Power only
- Portable pen – CW only
- ‘Pocket size’ offering CW or pulsed output
Pulse modulation aids in locating faults under high ambient light conditions and improves battery life. 2 Hz modulation is easy to detect with the naked eye, while 270 Hz and 2 kHz pulse modulation modes are used for fibre identification by detectors.
New IPG fibre lasers available to researchers through Elliot Scientific
A broader range of IPG Photonics‘ reliable diode-pumped lasers and amplifiers using doped optical fibres as gain media are now available to researchers through Elliot Scientific, including the newly introduced Raman series of orange and red lasers.
The four groups of laser systems, encompassing dozens of individual models, offer a choice in terms of power output, polarisation mode, pulsed or continuous wave, plus single or multimode, and single frequency options. Choose from:
- 1.0 micron Ytterbium-doped fibre lasers & amplifiers
Continuous wave (CW), Q-switched and single frequency diode-pumped solid-state fibre lasers, as well as diode-pumped fibre amplifiers, for coherent or spectral beam combining, sensors, He3 pumping, optical tweezers and SHG applications
- 1.5 micron Erbium-doped fibre lasers, amplifiers & broadband sources
Around 1500 nm, only IPG Photonics offers the widest range of devices in a variety of powers and configurations for a multitude of scientific uses
- 2.0 micron Thulium-doped fibre lasers
Medical and other research applications abound for these compact, high-power, wavelength-selectable, single-mode CW or pulsed sources operating in the 1900 to 2400 nm spectral region
- Raman lasers: Orange or Red wavelengths
Up to 20 W from a super-compact lightweight optical head linked to a small air-cooled control module makes these lasers ideal for adaptive optics and guide star applications, flow cytometry, holography and spectroscopy
