PicoFYb 1030

Picosecond Yb seeder

  • SAM mode-locked all PM fiber setup
  • User friendly turnkey operation, alignment-free system
  • Robust and reliable, compact design
  • Optics and electronics in just one box
  • 12V DC power supply with lowest power consumption
  • Fiber-coupled output

The PicoFYb laser systems are PM fiber-based picosecond oscillators using SAM mode-locking techniques for seeding industrial laser systems, e.g. for micro-machining. The PicoFYb laser pulses with excellent amplitude and frequency jitter parameters are amplified to typical multi-Watt levels in the MOPA (master oscillator, power amplifier) laser or regenerative amplifier systems of our customers. Typical amplifiers are slab, rod and disc lasers operating in the 1 µm wavelength regions.

    The FemtoFiber smart SwitchBox is a small tool for quick starters. It provides all switches, supply and status lines to run every FemtoFiber smart as a stand-alone system without integration environment and therefore is especially recommended for single-system users.

    TOPAS: Graphical User Interface

    The new TOPAS GUI allows to operate the FemtoFErb 1560 in a convenient way via USB. All you need is to download and install the setup wizard program (see Download section).
