EFO & EFOA-SH Series - Erbium-doped Femtosecond Lasers

Fiber-based femtosecond lasers offer robust and stable operation without the need for constant realignment. The low cost and stability of fiber-based femtosecond lasers mean that even beginner research labs can have a femtosecond pulse source without the need for expensive or complicated equipment. With pulse lengths of 80 - 300 fs at 1550 nm fiber femtosecond lasers can also be used as seed sources for femtosecond fiber amplifiers. Second harmonics with 780 nm wavelength are also available.

EFO

Fiber-based femtosecond lasers offer robust and stable operation without the need for constant realignment. The low cost and stability of fiber-based femtosecond lasers mean that even beginner research labs can have a femtosecond pulse source without the need for expensive or complicated equipment. This brings ultrafast research into the realm of undergraduate and other educational environments. With pulse lengths of 100 fs at 1550 nm fiber femtosecond lasers can also be used as seed sources for femtosecond fiber amplifiers. The 1550 nm wavelength of Er-doped fiber lasers also makes them an attractive tool for ultrahigh-speed optical communications applications.

The second harmonic version EFOA-SH with wavelength 780 is also available

EFOA-SH

Second harmonic of Er-doped fiber laser operates at wavelength of 780 nm and in a number of applications can replace the powerful but more expensive solid-state Ti:S lasers. Easy to use, featuring turn-key operation and small footprint, these lasers greatly facilitate any research. Lack of laser alignment experience is not a problem with these fiber lasers, as only general electronics and light physics knowledge is required to work with the unit.

The EFOA-SH is also a perfect source for amplifier system seeding due to one-box compact design and lack of expensive pump laser as in the case of Ti:S solid-state seed.
