>300 Picosecond Lasers Overview
>300 Picosecond lasers are one of the most diverse categories of pulsed lasers available on the market today since picosecond pulses (10-12s) can be generated by q-switching, gain switching, and mode locking. >300 Picosecond pulses can be produced from diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers, fiber lasers, and microchip lasers allowing for an extensive wavelength range from the ultraviolet through the infrared region. Additionally, this broad range of lasers enables pulse energies in the nJ, uJ, and mJ levels with pulse repetition rates varying from Hz to MHz. The high peak power and short pulse widths of picosecond lasers are ideal for a wide range of applications especially for material processing and machining applications such as laser texturing, trimming, and drilling.
