Product Introduction

STIM-DE Series

Based on patented Fiber Chirped Pulse Amplification (FCPA) technology, the industry-leading FCPA μJewel™ series offers sufficient pulse energy for selected material processing at a near-infrared wavelength of 1045 nm. Harmonic generation packages, which convert its output to visible and UV wavelengths, are available . The FCPA architecture allows users to choose between high energy operation up to 50 μJ pulses at a repetition rate of 100 kHz or 200 kHz, and high average power of 10 W and 20 W at 1 MHz in the fundamental wavelength. The STIM-DE Series allow for material processing at faster rates, depending on the application requirements.

STIM-FX Series

Proprietary Raman-shifting technology that creates a clean pulse shape and spectrum at the unique wavelength of 810 nm makes the STIM-FX series a convenient replacement for the ubiquitous Ti:Sapphire laser. This enables new possibilities for the use of femtosecond lasers in clinical and industrial settings. Since its introduction in 2005, the STIM-FX series has been a reliable workhorse in many applications. It is now available with powers up to 150 or 200 mW at 810 nm and 1620 nm. Target applications include Terahertz wave generation and detection, multiphoton fluorescence microscopy and second harmonic imaging.

STIM-Femtolite Ultra Series

Introduced in 2004, the STIM-Femtolite Ultra is the most compact, reliable Erbium-doped femtosecond fiber laser on the market. It is available in a range of wavelengths and power levels. The Ultra is the descendent of the first commercial femtosecond fiber laser. Together with earlier versions, hundreds of units have been sold around the world, with very low rates of return or failure. No other laser product has the same track record of reliable performance over such long time scales.
