Femtosource scientific XL 500

Share this on social media:

Femtosource scientific XL 500 is a high power ultrafast Chirped Pulse Oscillator (CPO) providing pulses of > 0.5μJ in energy at < 50fs in duration.

The combination yields a peak power of > 10MW at 5MHz repetition rate.


The successful crossover between ultrafast oscillators and amplifiers offers the advantages of both technolo­gies, while omitting their disadvantages. Applications include materials processing, THz generation, spec­troscopy and many others, where ultrafast pulses and ultra high peak power combined with high stability and reliability are of advantage.
