Onefive KATANA Pulsed Laser

Versatile pulsed laser with external triggering

If you need a versatile, sub-nanosecond laser system designed for all industrial applications, the KATANA laser is an excellent choice.

In the standard configuration, the KATANA provides pulses of 35 ps duration but other options – from 30 ps up to 10 ns – are available. Depending on the model, the pulse repetition rate spans from pulse-on-demand up to 100 MHz. The standard is either 0.05 to 1 MHz or 20 to 80 MHz.

The laser pulse can be triggered from an external source (in either master or slave mode). Continuous tuning of the repetition rate is standard.

Talk to us about other available options, such as:

  • Burst mode
  • Isolator/collimator output
  • PM or SM fiber output

No alignment is required making the KATANA maintenance-free and ensures you a low cost of ownership.

Combining the KATANA with a SuperK Extreme provides a complete source for super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. The KATANA serves as a depletion laser while the SuperK Extreme is a multi-wavelength system platform offering a spectrum between 400nm and 2400nm.

Features

  • External laser triggering

  • Master/Slave operation
  • Pulse-on-Demand
  • Diffraction-limited beam
  • Maintenance-free 24/7 operation
  • Lightweight
