Features

  • 290 fs – 10 ps tunable pulse duration
  • 800 μJ pulse energy
  • 80 W output power
  • 60 kHz – 2 MHz tunable base repetition rate

Overview

CARBIDE femtosecond lasers feature an output power of >80 W at 1030 nm wavelength. The laser emits pure pulses with ASE background of <10-9 and recently updated maximum energy specifications without compromises to the beam quality, industrial grade reliability and beam stability regardless of environmental conditions. Continuously tunable repetition rate in a range of 60 kHz to 2 MHz is combined with an in-built Pulse Picker for output pulse timing and full-scale energy control with <10 microsecond response time, enabling arbitrary shaping of the emission. Pulse duration can be tuned in a range of 290 fs – 10 ps. Excellent power stability of <0.5 % RMS is standard. The laser output can be split into a burst of several pulses of pico- and nano- separation while having the ability to modify the burst envelope. Harmonic generator options permit femtosecond applications at different wavelengths. The parameters are entirely software adjustable.

Tunable GHz and MHz burst with burst-in-burst capability

CARBIDE-CB3 has an option for tunable GHz and MHz burst with burst-in-burst capability – called BiBurst. The distance between burst packet groups is called nanosecond burst, N (MHz-Burst). The distance between sub‑pulses in the group is called picosecond burst, P (GHz‑Burst).

In single pulse mode, one pulse is emitted at a time at some fixed frequency. In burst mode, the output consists of several picosecond burst packets each separated by an equal time period between each packet. Each packet can contain a number of sub-pulses which are also separated by an equal time period between each pulse.

High pulse energy femtosecond lasers PHAROS and CARBIDE with flexible BiBurst functionality bring new production capabilities to high-tech manufacturing industries such as consumer electronics, integrated photonic chip manufacturing, stent cutting, surface functionalization, future displays manufacturing and quantum computing.

BiBurst material fabrication areas cover:

  • brittle material drilling and cutting
  • deep engraving
  • selective ablation
  • transparent materials volume modification
  • hidden marking
  • surface functional structuring.
