The ALCOR 520 femtosecond laser is a new generation of high-power femtosecond laser emitting in the green. ALCOR 520 produces clean and stable pulses with a duration of 180 fs at a typical frequency of 80 MHz. ALCOR 520 is easy to install and use in a wide variety of environments thanks to its small size, high efficiency and high performance.
ALCOR 520 includes computer-controlled features such as fast power modulation or fine calibrated power adjustment. ALCOR’s innovative fiber-based design offers high stability, high reliability without any maintenance making it the perfect industrial laser for scientific applications.
The fiber-based design enables a more compact, robust, and reliable laser than its DPSS and Ti:Sapphire counterparts. Through this simplified fiber design, these fiber lasers require little to no maintenance. Historically, researchers have been using Ti: Sapphire lasers, which utilize many more components and moving parts, including water cooling systems, requiring significantly more maintenance and ultimately leading to higher total cost of ownership. The combination of ultra short pulse duration, high repetition rates and high average powers offers many benefits to researchers and OEM microscopy instrumentation manufacturers in the lifesciences and biophotonics fields. In addition, the fiber-based design ensures reliable and robust 24/7 operation, while the ultra-compact, air-cooled user-friendly package eases integration and reduces facility requirements.
The ALCOR series of single wavelength 520 nm, 720 nm, 920 nm, 1040 nm, and 1064nm lasers are ideal for those working on multi-photon imaging applications. The combination of high energy (up to 62nJ) and short pulse width (as low as <100 fs) results in the highest peak power available on the market today. These features allow the researcher to image deeper into specimens, and with the revamped ALCOR 920-1 & 920-2, providing the shortest, clean pulses, at the highest powers, you truly get the best performance on the market for Multiphoton Microscopy! The additional options available: GDD pre-comp. down to -90,000 fs^2, XSight (AOM) module for fast power control, and fiber-coupled output make the ALCOR suitable for all two-photon microscopy setups.
The fiber based design of this series enables a more compact, robust, and reliable laser than its DPSS counterparts while still being air-cooled. Through this simplified fiber design, the ALCOR requires little to no maintenance. Historically, researchers have been using Ti: Sapphire lasers which utilize many more components and moving parts which requires significantly more maintenance ultimately leading to higher total cost of ownership. In the ALCOR, the only consumables are the laser diodes, which are rated for +20,000 hours.
