KMLabs has introduced the Wyvern laser. The laser produces light with the following properties: 20μJ at 100kHz, sub-50fs, M2 <1.3, with a 50kHz–200kHz repetition rate range.
The Wyvern is a complete, single-box laser system, employing patented down-chirped pulse amplification (DPA). DPA is around 45 per cent more efficient that similar methods, while also being easier to align and maintain. It is less costly, initially and over time, and preserves mode quality. The Wyvern’s short pulses, high energy and excellent spatial profile are exceptionally well suited to non-linear optics applications.
