Onefive completes 1000th ultrafast laser system

Feb. 12, 2014
Onefive GmbH, a privately-owned company founded in 2005, has finished its 1000th ultrafast laser system since its first one was shipped back in 2006.
Zurich, Switzerland – Onefive GmbH has completed its 1000th ultrafast laser system since the first one was shipped in 2006. Onefive provides industrial-grade OEM laser solutions for both femtosecond and picosecond applications.Onefive CEO, Lukas Krainer, summarizes the S/N 1000 milestone: “We are very proud of reaching this milestone, especially when considering that we are one of the few players in this niche market with neither venture capital nor having been acquired by any of the big players. It proves that industry leading performance, quality and volume can be successfully handled by small, privately owned companies”. Onefive lasers are designed and qualified for 24/7 operation under harsh environments. A focused product development approach provides a dust-sealed, maintenance-free small footprint product with reliable turn-key operation. To assure a high level of reproducibility, assembly of the ultrafast lasers is accomplished according to rigid procedures with a stringent level of quality control. Each laser runs extensive predefined and gated tests where all core specifications are monitored and measured. The well-established femtosecond Origami platform offers good pedestal-free pulse shape and ultra-low noise performance. High-power versions are available up to 100 microJ of pulse energy. The picosecond Katana platform offers the versatility of continuously tuning the pulse repetition rate, from pulse on demand up to 120 MHz. The complete product portfolio also includes the <20 ps Genki lasers and ps gain-switched semiconductor laser diodes PiLas. Founded in 2005, Onefive GmbH is dedicated to innovation of the emerging OEM ultrafast laser market by introducing a novel generation of advanced laser modules. The areas of application range from medical and biological applications, environmental to homeland security applications, sensing, material processing, and R&D.
