Spark(l)ing Applications ...

... with MONTFORT Laser sources as a standard M-NANO can generate sparks in air when the beam is focused with a simple lens!  Among other applications possible with our lasers, this capability of making sparks in gases, liquids and solid materials is used in LIBS - Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy - and enables fast and precise elemental analysis used in various applications ranging from contamination analysis, industrial process analysis, debris analysis, food analysis, etc etc.  See here how easy it is to generate sparks in air in just 5 minutes from unpacking the laser!

(oscillators only)

with Ytterbium or Nd:Vanadate as the host solid state laser material.  Available with up to >100 W average output power (if amplified) or up to multi-Watt levels.  Pulse durations are from sub-100-fs from Ytterbium lasers ranging up to the picosecond regime for both Ytterbium and Nd:Vanadate type of lasers. The spectrum of these modelocked oscillators is typically narrow or transform-limited due to the modelocking mechanism applied.  These modelocked laser oscillators are intended for research applications.  Options include frequency conversion (e.g. SHG - second harmonic generation) and a synchronization (SYNC) option.
