Femto Second Laser – Ultrafast fibre laser and fibre amplifier solutions
The Carmel X-series is a range of high power, air-cooled, fibre-based Femto-second lasers with output powers from 0.2 to greater than 2.5 W and pulse widths of less than 90 fs in the industry’s most compact, user-friendly package. The Carmel provides the perfect wavelength source for a wide range of ultrafast laser applications, including bio-imaging, multi-photon microscopy, optical metrology, 3D-microprinting, terahertz imaging and ophthalmology.
The system features a rack mountable controller with a robust armoured 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. Calmar provides lasers in Compact Fiber-Based Femtosecond Lasers, Fiber Based Femto-second Laser, High Repetition Rate Fiber-Based Pico-second Lasers, High Pulse Energy Fiber Based Femto-second Laser The X-series includes the capability of remote data logging, power monitoring, system diagnostics, and automated adjustment of the second harmonic crystal for prolonged lifetime and OEM service support. The rugged design supports 24/7 operation with an expected lifetime of > 10,000 hours.
For multi-photon microscopy applications, the Carmel provides an ideal ultrafast laser solution for optimum cellular tissue imaging with minimal scatter and reduced risk of photo damage. The compact laser head and associated armoured fibre cable make for straight forward integration into existing microscopes with minimal delivery optics.
