High Q Laser
High Q Laser introduces the ultra compact femtoRegen UC – an all-in-one femtosecond regenerative amplifier - delivering 2W power at 200kHz repetition rate with 350fs pulse duration on a footprint of 34 x 78cm. The system presents industrial reliability and robustness and can be customised to an OEM integrator’s needs for medical, industrial and scientific applications such as tissue engineering and nano processing.
The laser is based on the high end Yb-doped laser materials for future power and repetition rate scaling. It uses High Q Laser’s patent pending Intra-Cavity-Chirped-Pulse-Amplification (ICCPA) for ultra compact design.
The femtoREGEN UC integrates all pump laser diode modules, the seed oscillator and the amplifier in a single ultra compact housing. It is an ultra compact module itself for high stability and compactness. The UC seed oscillator is operating with ‘de-rated’ nominal pump current for longest MTBF and is based on High Q Laser’s patented resonator folding technique withstanding a 50g shock test for most robust performance. The semiconductor saturable absorber mirror (SESAM) assures passive and self-starting mode locking for high temporal stability.
