Cazadero – High Pulse Energy Fiber Based Femtosecond Laser (FLCPA)

Cazadero Femtosecond Laser

The Cazadero series (FLCPA) is a unique fiber laser chirped pulse amplification system that offers pulse energies up to 3 µJ and pulse widths of less 500 fs at 1550 nm in a robust industrial package. It is the perfect source for two-photon integrated circuit testing, multiphoton microscopy studies, micro-machining and a host of other applications.

The system features a hands-off laser head and a rack mountable controller, which facilitate its incorporation into OEM designs and afford convenient access to high peak power optical pulses. A simple key switch interface provides for manual operation with full remote access through computer control. The system includes the capability of remote data logging, power monitoring and system diagnostics for OEM service support.
