  • Light Conversion: Advantages of high-repetition rate femtosecond lasers

    Light Conversion: Advantages of high-repetition rate femtosecond lasers

    Modern-day solid-state femtosecond lasers operating at multikilohertz repetition rates, such as Light Conversion's Pharosand CarbideSeries, offer a unique combination of pulse energy and stability that make them the laser of choice for scientific research.

    In the world of femto- and attosecond laser science, some say the higher the laser pulse energy, the better. Nonetheless, many laser researchers are familiar with the maddening situation when the energy dial is in the red, the laser power supply is slowly starting to smoke, yet the signal is still so weak that the measurement will take years. So yes, when given the chance, going for the highest pulse energy is a choice, but is it the wisest choice given the state of lasers developed in recent years?

    Light Conversion Carbide Femtosecond Lasers for Industry and Science

    Light Conversion's CARBIDE is an industrial femtosecond laser combining 40 W output power and 400 μJ pulse energies. It maintains all the best features of its predecessor PHAROS: tunable base repetition rate of the amplifier from 60 kHz to 1000 kHz, a built‑in pulse picker for pulse‑on‑demand control, computer controllable pulse duration 290 fs – 10 ps. In addition, CARBIDE introduces new technologies including a novel approach to the cavity design supporting fast laser warm up time which is important for medical applications. An intra‑cavity pulse picker allows reduction of cost and lower power consumption. A highly integrated LD driver and control electronics along with an embedded computer control provide lower electromagnetic noise emission. The other improvements provide a few times higher average output power to wall plug‑in efficiency, which also reduces cooling requirements.
