• 400- to 2400-nm range
• repetition rate 100 kHz to 40 MHz
• spectral flatness <6 dB
Fianium Ltd. has introduced the SC400-PP, a high-power fibre laser that has a built-in pulse picker and that generates radiation in the 400- to 2400-nm-wavelength range at a user-selectable repetition rate from 100 kHz to 40 MHz. The company says that the air-cooled laser is maintenance-free and does not require any adjustments.
Spectral flatness is <6 dB, average output power is 4 W, maximum power consumption is <100 W, master source pulse width is 5 ps, and spectral density is >3 mW/nm. The laser measures 300 × 250 × 120 mm and weighs 4.5 kg. Applications include biomedicine, optical coherence tomography and metrology.
Spectral bandwidth, output power and other performance parameters can be tailored to customer requirements.
