Ultracompact Fiber Laser
Mar 2011Calmar Laser Inc.Request Info
Calmar Laser Inc. has added an ultracompact high-power 780-nm
femtosecond fiber laser to its Mendocino family. Model FPL-05RFF0 offers 500 mW
of output power and a pulse width of 150 fs in a 3 x 3 x 13.5-cm package. It provides
a 50-mHz train of femtosecond pulses that have a near-pedestal-free shape and high
pulse-to-pulse stability. The output beam has roundness better than 90% and M2 <1.1,
enabling optimal spatial resolution when used in conjunction with microscope systems.
Completely air-cooled, the laser is designed for OEM and scientific biophotonic
applications, including multiphoton microscopy and biomedical imaging. The new model
is nearly 300 times smaller than comparable power femtosecond Ti:sapphire laser
systems, according to the company.
