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.
