[ EKSPLA ] New tunable wavelength femtosecond system

09 Mar, 2016

EKSPLA announced new UltraFlux series tunable wavelength femtosecond laser system based on OPCPA technology.

UltraFlux is the first compact high energy femtosecond laser system which incorporates the advantages of ultrafast fiber laser, solid-state and parametric amplification technologies in less than 1 square meter footprint box. Patent pending (application No. EP2924500) OPCPA front end technology uses the same picosecond fiber laser for seeding both picosecond DPSS pump laser and femtosecond parametric amplifier by spectrally broadened output. This approach greatly simplifies the system – excludes femtosecond regenerative amplifier and eliminates the need of pump and seed pulse synchronization. In addition to that, contrast of the output pulses in picosecond to nanosecond time scale is potentially increased.

System generates 30 fs pulses, which can be automatically tuned in 680-960 nm wavelength range. Less than 10 fs pulses are obtained in a few-cycle operating regime. Up to 0.35 mJ output pulse energy with better than 1% pulse-to-pulse stability at 1 kHz repetition rate is achieved by using a state of the art OPCPA technology.

By incorporating parametric amplifier technology together with a novel ultrafast fiber laser helped to create and bring to the market a new tool for femtosecond pump-probe, nonlinear spectroscopy, emerging high harmonic generation experiments  and other femtosecond and nonlinear spectroscopy applications. With this laser ultrafast science breakthrough is closer to any photonics lab than ever before.
