Seed Lasers

Injection seeding fiber lasers is a widely used mode-selection technique that uses a source laser to selectively reduce the laser’s gain threshold at that a specific wavelength.  This results in the laser’s output having the same spectral properties as the seed laser, therefore, improving its overall performance characteristics.    While this method can be used with both CW and pulsed fiber lasers, it is used mainly for producing narrow linewidth pulsed fiber lasers.  In this case, a single-frequency fiber laser is coupled into the fiber laser optical cavity and pulsed via a gain switching electronic driver board which can be triggered and timed to coincide with the q-switched fiber laser’s pulse.  This causes the fiber laser to lock onto the source laser’s exact wavelength due to the reduction in the laser’s gain threshold at that specific wavelength.   On this page, you will find a list of all of the single-frequency fiber lasers we offer for injection seeding pulsed fiber lasers.

Nps Series

Nps-1064-10

The new, ultrafast NPS Series features up to 10W average output power, <7ps pulse width, and a 40MHz repetition rate. The transform-limited operation, with a spectral width of < 0.3nm, and remarkably accurate central wavelength (1064.3 +/- 0.1nm) make the NPS Series a suitable candidate for highly efficient amplification by Nd-doped DPSS amplifiers. Therefore, opening the way to nonlinear optics applications like OPO pumping, and narrowband Raman Spectroscopy.

R Series

R Series

The R series of wavelength stabilized single mode and multimode laser diodes offer narrow wavelength spectrum in wavelengths from 633nm thru 1064nm. Package options range from components as basic as a TO-56 or 14-pin BF packaged diodes, to OEM modules including electronics, to UL/CE and IEC certified turn-key systems.

Microchip Series

Bright Microlaser Microchip SB1 Laser

The Microchip Series, from BrightMicroLaser, are ultra-compact, passively q-switched, single longitudinal mode (SLM), narrow linewidth, DPSS lasers that feature pulse durations from 400 ps to 2 ns, energy levels up to 80 uJ and repetition rates up to 100 kHz. In addition to the fundamental 1064 nm wavelength and its harmonics (532, 355 and 266 nm), we also deliver units emitting at 946 and 473 nm.
