  • T-Light Fiber Laser

MARTINSRIED, Germany, July 12, 2007 -- In response to industry demands for reliable, less expensive pulsed lasers, Menlo Systems GmbH said it has released its most compact femtosecond fiber laser to date, the T-Light.

Germany-based Menlo Systems is a spinoff of the Max Planck T-Light.jpgInstitute for Quantum Optics. It said its new T-Light has special qualities -- like extremely short pulses, high repetition rate, excellent beam quality and long life span -- in a robust and very compact package. It is engineered for applications in micromaterial processing, terahertz generation, multiphoton microscopy and spectroscopy.

"During the last few years, our industrial customers have asked for reliable and cheaper femtosecond lasers. With the T-Light we have reacted straight to this and have developed the most compact laser of its class," said manager Michael Mei. "We have succeeded in creating a laser with a dual wavelength output of 1560 nm and 780 nm. With its 24/7 operation cycle, the laser can be OEM integrated."

According to the company, with its compact dimensions of 18 x 18 x 8 cm, Menlo Systems' developers set a new benchmark in the overall size of this laser class.

"Although the T-Light is very compact, we have not made any compromise in performance. With an average output power of 150 mW at the fundamental wavelength and a repetition rate of 100 MHz in pulses of 100 fs, it is state-of-the art," said CTO Ronald Holzwarth.

fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
