Carmel F - Fiber Based Femtosecond Laser with Fiber Delivery (CFL)

Multiphoton Microscopy Femtosecond Laser

The Carmel F-1350 represents the first in the new F-series of fiber-delivered, femtosecond fiber lasers with output powers of over 100 mW and pulse widths of less than 200 fs. The system utilizes the same building blocks used in the industry leading Carmel X-series but with the convenience of a fiber-delivered output. The Carmel F-1350 is the perfect source for two-photon transient current injection used in the testing and characterization of integrated circuits.

The system features a single rack mountable controller with a robust armored fiber-cable output, which facilitates its incorporation into OEM designs and provides for the direct delivery of high peak power optical pulses to test samples. Similar to the X-series, a simple key switch interface provides for manual operation with full remote access through computer control.

"Calmar's products have continued to perform well, even after several years, and are much lower maintenance than our other mode-locked lasers"
