Why choose? New Koheras BoostiK™ laser gives you high output power AND ultra low noise - single-frequency of course.

Birkerød, Denmark (October 13, 2011), NKT Photonics launches new range of high power BoostiK™ single-frequency fiber lasers offering up to 15W output with market leading low phase noise and narrow linewidth for applications within e.g. atomic physics, sensing and LIDAR.

The laser is completely fiber monolithic and maintenance free with an industrially rugged air cooled package – ready to handle 24/7 operation in both laboratory and industrial environments.

“We are very excited about the new BoostiK™ series as it makes our industry-leading low noise lasers available for customers requiring narrow linewidth at Watt level output” Says Søren Løvgreen, sales manager for Koheras lasers. “This is especially important for the atomic trapping community but has many other applications within fields like LIDAR and metrology”.

To further service our customers and ensure maximum security, the Koheras BoostiK™ laser is available with NKT Photonics’ Koheras Care™ warranty and service packages that gives our customers a 2 year warranty extension, remote diagnostics of key parameters over the internet and the possibility of having a customer specific laser in stock at NKT Photonics – ready to ship within hours if needed.
