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 Institute 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.
