<300 Picosecond Lasers

<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.  Less than 300 Picosecond(ps) pulses can be produced from diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers and fiber lasers, allowing for a wavelengths in the green and NIR regions.  Additionally, these ps lasers enables pulse energies in the nJ and uJ levels with pulse repetition rates varying from Hz to MHz.  The high peak power and short pulse widths of <300 picosecond lasers are ideal for a wide range of applications especially for material processing and machining applications such as laser texturing, trimming, and drilling.

PS lasers that produce less than 10 picoseconds pulses belong to the category of ultrafast lasers or ultrashort pulse 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, femtosecond fiber lasers will not produce heat affected zones, splatter, or significant recast. Additionally, these lasers will eliminate the need for any post-processing.

ANTARES is a picosecond, quasi-continuous wave laser with a high repetition rate up to 80 MHz and a narrow linewidth, in a very compact and robust format. This laser series offers average powers of 1 to 40W at 1030 nm or 1064 nm (upon request) and can be doubled or tripled in the harmonics to answer even the most challenging industrial and scientific applications. ANTARES is ideally suited for applications such as CARS and spectroscopy applications.



SIRIUS is a very compact, high energy hybrid ultrafast laser for advanced micro-machining applications and supercontinuum pumping, offering over 120µJ and > 5 W, with pulses below 10 ps from single shot to 1MHz and an M² of < 1.2. This laser series specifically designed to allow for ergonomic and user-friendly operation. SIRIUS is ideally suited for selective ablation, electronics, and photonic applications.
