New IPG ultrafast fibre lasers for research now available through Elliot Scientific

IPG Photonics has developed a range of green, infrared, and mid-IR high speed fibre and fiber-to-bulk hybrid lasers operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, making them ideal for scientific and medical research.

Ultrashort pulse durations between 10-11 and 10-13 seconds are generated by a master oscillator/ fibre power amplifier (MOFPA) architecture, and are particularly well suited for generating pulse energies from several microjoules to  about 1 mJ with repetition rates from 10 kHz to 3 MHz.

Elliot Scientific offers these pulsed lasers at various wavelengths, from UV to Mid-IR, allowing researchers to perform many different experiments. Material process engineering , such as flat panel displays; thin films; and semiconductor processing, can also benefit.

Features

  • Wide selection of wavelengths
  • Pulse energy is independent of PRR
  • Average power from 1 to 100 W
  • Pulse energy is independent of average power
  • PRR from 10 kHz to 3 MHz
  • Constant beam mode quality
  • Excellent pointing stability
  • Compact and efficient
