High Energy Femtosecond Lasers
The Carmel X-series (CFL) is a range of high power, air-cooled, 780 nm and 1550 nm fiber-based femtosecond lasers with output powers from 0.2 to greater than 2.0 W. With pulse widths of less than 90 fs in a small user-friendly package, the X-series provides the perfect source for a wide range of ultrafast laser applications, including bio-imaging, multiphoton microscopy, optical metrology, 3D-microprinting, terahertz imaging and ophthalmology.
The system features a rack mountable controller with a robust armored cable interface to the compact laser head, which facilitates its incorporation into OEM designs. It is over 100 times smaller than many Ti:sapphire lasers with a similar output power level. A simple key switch interface provides for manual operation with full remote access through computer control. The X-series includes the capability of remote data logging, power monitoring, system diagnostics, and automated adjustments for prolonged lifetime and OEM service support.
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.
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.
