The APL-500-1064 (5ps, 25uJ @ 10kHz, M2<1.2) is a fiber based diode-pumped solid-state laser that can be pulsed on demand from 0 to 500kHz. These affordable ultrafast lasers combine the advantages of robust fiber laser technology with the high energies of solid-state diode-pumped free space amplifiers. Designed by Attodyne, the APL incorporates a non-traditional laser cavity that is not susceptible to misalignment or in need of frequent maintenance. The modular design of the Attodyne laser allows it to be customized to meet various application needs for power, pulse energy, rep rate, and wavelength. High energy near-IR units are available with energy levels of ~50mJ at low rep rates.
Ultrafast pulsed mid-IR versions are available with pulse energies comparable to those of free electron lasers. These mid-IR units combine the compactness and robustness of the near-IR lasers without the cost and maintenance issues associated with multi-component femtosecond sources.
The Attodyne family of lasers is ideal for numerous industrial and scientific applications such as repair of thin film transistors; thin film processing; repair of printed circuit boards, masks and flat panel displays; dicing; and scribing and interconnecting wafers.
