FemtoFErb 780: turnkey pulses with < 100 fs
Most compact and cost effective ultrafast fiber laser for terahertz and biophotonics
FemtoFErb 780 – compact all-fiber laser with < 100 fs pulse width and > 50 mW at 780 nm.
January 14, 2013
TOPTICA’s new FemtoFErb 780, a turnkey laser system, delivers
50 mW average power at 780 nm center wavelength with a pulse
duration of less than 100 fs at a repetition rate of 100 MHz. Based on
polarization-maintaining Erbium-doped fibers and saturable absorber
mirror (SAM) mode-locking technology, the all-fiber system features a
compact SHG unit and comes with a free-beam output. Combining
optics with the entire control electronics on a footprint of only 202 x 122
x 69 mm3 makes the FemtoFErb 780 the most compact fs-fiber laser
commercially available. A perfect match for the requirements of timedomain
terahertz, the FemtoFErb 780 also provides an ideal seeding
source for Ti:Sapphire systems. In addition, this cost-effective
replacement for bulky solid-state lasers suits various applications in
biophotonics, ranging from SHG microscopy to multi-photon excitation.
Fiber technology ensures a very compact design as well as highest
robustness against vibrations and mechanical shocks. Telecomqualified
components guarantee round-the-clock reliability and a long
lifetime. And finally, its passive SAM device ensures reliable selfstarting
A plug&play system for both OEM integrators and single-unit
customers, the FemtoFErb provides an electrical interface for remote
control and only requires a 12 V supply to drive all internal electronics.
An optional SwitchBox provides all switches, supplies and status lines
needed to run the laser as a stand-alone system without integration environment.
