A family of fiber-based master oscillator power amplifier (MOPA)
lasers has been unveiled by Genia Photonics. The lasers deliver short, high-frequency
pulses in the pico-second regime and offer quick and easy access to all the key
laser operating parameters. Applications include micromachining, etching and ablation.
The graphical user interface makes the unit easy to set up and operate, while providing
full control of all the operating parameters. There are no moving parts to wear
down and no free-space optics to be aligned. The design offers a choice of a fixed-
or a variable-wavelength seed source that combines with a chain of amplifiers into
a compact unit available in either a tabletop or a 19-in. rack-mount configuration.
The system uses an optical fiber output that keeps the light guided up to the target,
and the fiber-based platform enables the unit to be easily and reliably transported
to where it is needed.
