  • Femtolite FX-100i Laser
Feb 2011
IMRA America Inc.Request Info
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 1, 2011 — The Femtolite FX-100i introduced by IMRA America Inc. is a compact femtosecond fiber laser that produces >100 mW at 805 nm. Measuring 14 × 10 × 8 cm and weighing 1.4 kg, the laser head has the same footprint as the company's Femtolite Ultra series of miniature femtosecond fiber lasers, an advantage for system integration.

With sub-120 fs pulses at a repetition rate of 75 MHz and typical pulse energy of 1.6 nJ, the new laser is a suitable replacement for Ti:sapphire. Target laboratory and industrial OEM applications include terahertz wave generation, spectroscopy, imaging and detection; multiphoton fluorescence microscopy; stereolithography; and second-harmonic imaging.

The CE-compliant laser is easy to operate directly from the front panel controls or remotely via an RS-232 interface. The fiber-based design ensures that no adjustment, alignment or optical tweaking is required.

Power stability is <3% over 1 h, operating temperature is from 20 to 30 °C, and warm-up time is <15 min. The system is air-cooled.

femtosecond laser
A type of ultrafast laser that creates a minimal amount of heat-affected zones by having a pulse duration below the picosecond level, making the technology ideal for micromachining, medical device fabrication, scientific research, eye surgery and bioimaging.
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.
A method of creating real three-dimensional models by using lasers driven by CAD software. In contrast to the normal practice of removing material, this process polymerizes a liquid to quickly produce shapes that are untouched by human hands or cutting tools. Also known as three-dimensional imaging and three-dimensional modeling.
