Toptica Photonics is to present latest developments in high-end laser technology at BiOS / Photonics West. New products to be shown at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from February 13th – 18th include ultra-stable diode lasers and powerful femtosecond fiber lasers, as well as frequency combs and terahertz systems. They enable a variety of demanding applications in biophotonics and microscopy, materials and test & measurement, in addition to quantum optics and spectroscopy.

A multitude of nonlinear photonic methods are only feasible with the use of femtosecond laser pulses. Emerging new industrial applications need cost-effective laser sources with a compact footprint and high reliability. Delivering pulses of less than 150 fs at a repetition rate of 80 MHz, Toptica’s new FemtoFiber ultra NIR provides more than 500 mW output power at a wavelength of 780 nm with the robustness and user-friendly turnkey operation of modern fiber lasers. The system’s unique performance is combined with a compact design and there is no need for water-cooling. The FemtoFiber ultra NIR is perfect for applications in biophotonics and microscopy, as well as semiconductor inspection and surface analysis.

Toptica’s new multi-laser engine iChrome SLE offers increased flexibility and outstanding reliability. It integrates up to eight individual diode or DPSS laser sources customizable from 405 nm to 640 nm. All integrated lasers are coupled into a single-mode polarization-maintaining (SM / PM) fiber or into an optional fiber switch with two SM / PM output fibers. The switch enables fast alternation of all colors between both fibers within less than 10 ms. The flexibility of the system is increased by the capability to exchange individual laser color cartridges without shipping the system back to the manufacturer. This is as easy as changing an ink cartridge in a printer. Furthermore there is no need for manual realignment after replacing a laser color cartridge since Toptica’s patented COOLAC technology will perform all necessary alignment at the push of a button.
