Picosecond / Femtosecond Fiber Lasers

Next generation ultrafast fiber lasers for science and industry

Ultrafast technology has seen an unpredictable success ever since it was introduced. Many promising applications have emerged benefiting mainly from the high peak power and ultrashort pulse duration which give rise to nonlinear effects and open new paths in engineering and scientific research. The key for successful integration of ultrafast technology are robust, cost-effective systems with simple push-button operation.

TOPTICA offers several products fulfilling these requirements: ultrafast fiber lasers based on Erbium (Er) and Ytterbium (Yb) like the FemtoFiber smartFemtoFiber pro, FemtoFiber ultra and FemtoFiber dichro series. All these systems are based on TOPTICA FemtoFiber technology.

TOPTICA’s FemtoFiber lasers provide reliable femtosecond / picoseconds pulses based on polarization-maintaining fibers and SAM mode-locking. Different models (1560/780 nm, VIS/NIR tunable output, IR/NIR supercontinuum, short-pulse) cover a wide range of applications, e.g.  non-linear microscopy, two-photon polymerization, time-domain Terahertz, attoscience, and as seed lasers.
