New generation ultra-stable Koheras BOOSTIK lasers combine low noise and high power

NKT Photonics is proud to announced the World-wide release of the new generation of our Koheras BOOSTIK lasers – a maintenance-free single-frequency fiber laser system with a unique combination of narrow linewidth, pristine beam quality, and high output power.

The new generation BOOSTIK lasers provides several new features and improvements such as a significantly higher free-running wavelength stability and larger tuning range. Moreover, the new BOOSTIK comes with internal fast wavelength modulation capabilities, and a build-in wave-function generator, which are both controlled through a user-friendly GUI. This eliminates the need for a costly external piezo driver and ensures lowest possible noise.

The system is available at any wavelength in the ranges 1050-1090 nm and 1540-1570 nm with up to 15 W of output power and is controlled through a user-friendly interface.

New features and improvements

  • 10X better wavelength stability against environmental temperature changes (1 pm/K)
  • 2.5X larger fast wavelength tuning range
  • Built-in internal fast wavelength modulation with no need for external piezo driver
  • Internal function generator
  • Slim 1U seed laser

In addition, the new generation BOOSTIK lasers comes with all the great features that have made the Koheras brand so popular in labs around the World:

  • Available at any wavelength in the 1050-1090 nm and 1540-1570 nm range
  • High output power up to 15 W
  • Shot-noise limited performance with Hz range linewidth and low phase noise
  • Burst noise and mode hop free
  • Available with kHz frequency modulation
  • Excellent beam quality ideal for frequency conversion

Typical applications

The Koheras BOOSTIK lasers are widely used in the scientific community for high precision metrology where ultra-stable and low noise laser operation is critical. Among the most important applications are:

  • ­Optical length and frequency standards
  • ­Quantum optics / computing & phenomena such as optical trapping, optical lattice, Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), atom interferometers, and squeezing
  • ­Nonlinear optics pump source (SHG, DFG, OPO)
  • ­Laser-based metrology (precision laser interferometry and spectroscopy)
  • ­Optical heterodyning and coherent communication
  • ­Coherent beam combining

The new generation BOOSTIK lasers are available now. For more information please contact us or call Koheras product line manager Søren Løvgreen at +45 4348 3900.
