Ekspla Atlantic 6 Compact Air-cooled Industrial Picosecond Laser

Atlantic 6 model Compact Air Cooled Picosecond Laser

Ekspla's  Atlantic 6 is designed for industrial micromachining applications as a reliable, compact and cost effective solution. Hybrid fiber and DPSS technologies implemented in this model make it also very energetically efficient, which enables air cooling solution for laser head. No water is used inside laser, which means you should not worry about unexpected leakage, regular water replacement or possible chiller failure. Laser head generates only around 150 W of heat, so it required quite simple heat management solutions for system integrators. Laser do not require a chiller or big heat exchanger, so all control and power supply electronics is fit into standard 3U 19-inch rack.

Hybrid technology enables new pulse control features, which are not present in earlier Atlantic series lasers. Atlantic 6 can provide burst of pulses spaced only 25 ns in time, so called seeder burst mode. It is very useful in material processing applications, because in some cases it allows to increase process efficiency or at least provides additional variable parameter for process optimization. Atlantic 6 has broad range of accessible pulse repetition ranges, from single pulse to 1 MHz. Read more.

Ekspla SL212 Series SBS Compressed Picosecond Nd:YAG Lasers

SL212 series SBS compressed Q switched NdYAG Laser 1

Ekspla's  SL212 laser is excellent solution for applications, where high energy picosecond pulses are needed. In contrary to conventional mode-locked lasers the SL212 series lasers use different method of generating short pulses based on backward-stimulated Brillouin scattering (SBS). Diode pumped passive Q-switched single longitudinal mode (SLM) nanosecond generator is the heart of the system. It provides nanosecond optical pulse that is later compressed during SBS in a special cell.

Pulse compressor consists of optical guiding system and SBS-cell. SBS cell is designed for safe and longlife maintenance free operation. A linearly polarized light pulse from master oscillator passes through QWP and is focused into SBS-cell by lens. Focusing is arranged in the way to compress the pulse via SBS process. The backscattered Stokes pulse, as its phase is reversed, strictly repeats the path of pump pulse in the opposite direction and with a reversal divergence. The compressed pulse is guided into the amplification stage using polarizer and mirror.

After SBS compression, pulse is directed to multi-pass flashlamp pumped power amplifier system, providing high-energy pulses. SL212 model lasers use multi-pass amplifier system which is based on laser chamber containing Nd:YAG rod pumped by two flash lamps. For smooth obtaining output beam profile pre-amplifier and double-pass amplifier layout is used in SL212 series lasers. Power amplifier includes optical components arranging passes through the active element. Aperture is employed to prevent the returning depolarized radiation from getting back into the amplifier.

Thermocontrolled harmonics’ generators, based on angle-tuned non-linear crystals and harmonic separation optics are available as standard options. Fundamental and second harmonics are separated and has a single output port. Harmonics’ crystals mounted in temperature‑controlled heaters. Pulse compression during SBS, is a simple and cost effective way for generating high power picosecond pulses. In addition to it, SBS compression allows generation of pulses with exceptional pulse duration range: from 150 ps up to 1000 ps. A power supply and water/water type cooling units, placed in standard 19” rack, requires a little space under the user’s optical table. Read more.
