Femtosecond Lasers

RPMC is your Femtosecond Laser Supplier! Femtosecond (fs) Lasers (ultrafast lasers, or ultra-short pulse width lasers) generate pulses at the scale of ≈10-15s through a process known as mode-locking. Mode-locked lasers utilize phase locking to interfere a large number of lasing modes together in such a way as to cause the generation of ultrafast pulses. As a result of having such short pulse widths, femtosecond lasers have incredibly high peak powers typically in the MW to GW range. Femtosecond Laser Applications: The high peak power, high energy pulses, and short pulse widths of femtosecond lasers are ideal for a wide range of applications especially for non-linear spectroscopy, second harmonic generation (SHG), and micromachining.

Pulsed Lasers that produce less than 10 picoseconds pulses belong to the category of ultrafast lasers or ultra short pulse lasers, even though they may still be called picosecond lasers.  Ultrafast Lasers are ideal for the cold ablation of any material, including metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, coatings, glass, plastics, diamonds, and PET. Ultrafast lasers can even operate on layered substrates. Cold ablation allows for material to be removed without heating the residual matter. Thus, ultrafast fiber lasers (femtosecond fiber lasers) will not produce heat affected zones, splatter, or significant recast. Additionally, these lasers will eliminate the need for any post-processing.

Femtosecond fiber based lasers are starting to replace older, bulkier Ti:Sapphire lasers. Femtosecond laser prices are much lower when compared to the ti sapphire laser price. Total cost of ownership and maintenance time and cost are also lower with air-cooled fiber lasers when compared to water-cooled Ti:Sapphire laser systems. The Alcor laser platform is a great contender for replacing these legacy laser sources.
