Altair – ultrafast femtosecond laser for multiphoton and other bios related applications”

ALTAIR is a femtosecond, quasi-continuous wave range of lasers, typically emitting at 1040 nm, which delivers industrial grade performance in a rugged, compact, air-cooled package.

The Altair is available with repetition rates up to 80 MHz, in a robust and extremely easy to install format.  

This ultra-short pulsed laser is ideally suited for the most demanding biophotonics applications.

The ALTAIR is capable of average powers ranging from hundreds of mW up to 20W, with ultrashort pulse widths down to < 100 fs (other fs pulse durations available).

This state-of-the-art fiber laser technology provides excellent beam quality and high resolution that is often required by many life-science microscopy applications.

The performances of this range of lasers coupled with cost-efficient components allow for a low cost of ownership. 

Typical applications for the Altair include Multiphoton Microscopy, Two-photon microscopy, Neuroscience, Optogenetics, OPO Pumping, Non-Linear Optics, spectroscopy, Terahertz generation and much more.
