March 2, 2006, Berlin, Germany--Lumics is introducing a pulsed fiber laser unit with up to 0.8 mJ pulse energy (average power 4W). The LU1060F400 is a short pulse Ytterbium fiber laser in Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration. The laser operating mode can be changed by selecting customer specific pulse parameters via a conventional USB computer interface.
The laser emits at wavelengths from 1060 to 1080 nm from a fiber with a 25-micron core. The optical output features a very high beam quality. The fiber is specified at a standard length of 1.5 m terminated with FC/APC connector. Optional collimator and focuser as well as metal armored cable are available. The key parameters such as the output power, pulse energy, repetition rate and pulse width can be set through a USB interface from Windows PC application. The laser can be operated with a simple TTL control interface. Product samples are expected to be available in April 2006
