Picosecond Lasers

What is a Picosecond Laser?

A picosecond laser is a type of laser that emits pulses of light with a duration of one picosecond (10^-12 seconds).

These extremely short pulses of light allow for high precision and minimal heat-affected zone, making them ideal for a wide range of applications, such as material processing, medical treatments, and scientific research.
