aeroPULSE high power narrow linewidth picosecond lasers

aeroPULSE is a portfolio of industrial-grade mode-locked fiber lasers based on NKT Photonics world renowned Crystal Fibre platform. Delivering up to 40W of output power,while maintaining a linewidth less than 1 nm, the aeroPULSE line is designed for applications within semiconductor inspection, bioimaging and material processing.

aeroPULSE_control_unitThe aeroPULSE series provides high power quasi-CW output, perfect beam quality, exceptional stability and 24/7 maintenance free operation. As standard, aeroPULSE is available with either 10W or 40W output power emitting at 1035nm. Other wavelengths, including green, are available upon request.

The all-fiber platform enables NKT Photonics to back the aeroPULSE line with a 24 month warranty and the fully modular optical solution ensures easy turn-key operation, flexibility and maximum up-time.
The system configuration consists of a 19” rack-mountable control unit and a very low profile laser head that can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. The complete system can be either air-cooled for low output power performance or water-cooled for high output power performance.
