M-FEMTO-LAB Yb Lab-style Femtosecond Modelocked Oscillator [PR119]

For academic purposes, this breadboard-style <100fs - <400-fs (please specify) laser oscillator could become your lab engine – it is a lab-type, accessible femtosecond modelocked laser oscillator which has a similar setup as the integrated M-FEMTO products. It is based on a diode-pumped Ytterbium solid-state laser, which is pumped by an external fiber-coupled laser diode. Pulse formation is done by soliton modelocking resulting in clean, sech2-shaped pulses. Operation in clean environment is recommended.

Average output power 1.5 … 3 W
Pulse energy, max. nJ ... uJ
Pulse duration (FWHM) <100 fs … <400 fs
Wavelength (center) 1030 … 1045 nm

Description

For academic purposes, this breadboard-style <100fs to <400-fs laser oscillator could become your lab engine – it is a lab-type, open-housing femtosecond laser oscillator which has a similar setup as the integrated products. It is based on a diode-pumped Ytterbium solid-state laser, which is pumped by an external fiber-coupled laser diode (see for example the LDC-1000-980-LP or equivalent, 19" rack housing size).

 

Pulsed, modelocked operation is self-starting and the <100fs or ~400-fs operation shows excellent stability with respect to noise, modelocked-Q-switching instabilities and double pulsing. Modelocking is initiated by a Semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SeSAM) optimized for 100-400-fs operation. The user can open the lid and make changes or additions to the laser as he wishes. This provides ultrafast laser research groups with an easy and cost-effective jump start to get going with ultrafast laser pulses around 1045nm for leading research applications.

 

Requires for operation: LDC-1000-980-LP Laser Diode Controller (included, 19" rack with 3 HU), or equivalent.

 

Applications include nonlinear microscopy, seeding of amplifiers, pumping of OPOs, super-continuum generation, ultrafast spectroscopy, Terahertz generation, Nano surgery & machining, etc.
