aeroPULSE FS60 high power femtosecond laser

The aeroPULSE FS60 is our new industrial-grade femtosecond fiber laser based on our world-leading photonic crystal fiber platform.

aeroPULSE FS60Developed for both demanding 24/7 OEM and academic applications, the aero­PULSE FS60 delivers high unit-to-unit consistency and uptime, low cost of ownership, and ease of integration.

Ultra-short femtosecond pulses

This high performance and rugged OEM fiber laser utilize state-of-the-art mode-lock­ing technology to deliver ultra-short femtosecond pulses with outstanding long-term stability, superior pulse-to-pulse stability, low noise, and excellent beam pointing stability.

Developed for cutting edge applications

The aeroPULSE FS60 is designed for a diverse range of applications including thin film cutting, glass cutting, stent, and other medical devices, IC package cutting, scribing, OPA pumping, and material processing.

With the introduction of programmable amplifier burst control, higher ablation rates or depths can be achieved over non-burst processing for many applications. This new feature allows for full process optimization.

As standard, the aero­PULSE FS60 is available with output powers up to 60 W at 1030 nm. With tuneable pulse duration and a high range of repetition rates, the aeroPULSE FS60 is a flexible, cost-effective femtosecond laser.

Get the dual wavelength second harmonic module

The attachable second-harmonic generation (SHG) module makes it possible to switch between 20 μJ at 515 nm and 40 μJ at 1030 nm. The wavelength is selected via software.

Maintenance-free and OEM-ready

Utilizing NKT Photonics propriety optoCAGETM technology results in no alignment for ultimate reliability. The aeroPULSE FS60 guarantees high stability with 24/7 operation and is ideal for OEM integration.

The system can be remotely controlled via an RS-232 interface and incorporates extensive onboard data logging of key parameters.
