The FemtoFErb 780 ultrafast fiber laser delivers 50 mW average power at a 780 nm center wavelength, with a <100 fs pulse duration at a 100 MHz repetition rate. Based on erbium-doped fiber and saturable absorber mirror (SAM) modelocking technology, the all-fiber system features a compact second-harmonic-generation (SHG) unit and free-beam output. The laser can serve as a seeding source for Ti:sapphire systems, and typical applications include SHG microscopy, multiphoton excitation, and other biophotonics applications.Toptica Photonics

----- PRESS RELEASE FemtoFErb 780: turnkey pulses with < 100 fs World's most compact and cost effective ultrafast fiber laser TOPTICA’s new FemtoFErb 780, a turnkey laser system, delivers 50 mW average power at 780 nm center wavelength with a pulse duration of less than 100 fs at a repetition rate of 100 MHz. Based on Erbium-doped fiber and saturable absorber mirror (SAM) mode-locking technology, the all-fiber system features a compact SHG unit and provides free-beam output. Combining optics with the entire control electronics on a footprint of only 202 x 122 x 69 mm3 makes the FemtoFErb 780 the world's most compact fs-fiber laser. A perfect match for the requirements of time-domain terahertz, the FemtoFErb 780 also provides an ideal seeding source for Ti:Sapphire systems. In addition, this cost-effective replacement for bulky solid-state lasers suits various applications in biophotonics, ranging from SHG microscopy to multi-photon excitation. FemtoFErb 780 fiber technology ensures its compact design with the toughest strength against vibrations and mechanical shocks. Telecom-qualified components guarantee round-the-clock reliability and a long lifetime. And finally, its passive SAM device ensures reliable self-starting and mode-locking. A plug&play system for both OEM integrators and single-unit customers, the FemtoFErb provides an electrical interface for remote control and only requires a 12 V supply to drive all internal electronics. An optional SwitchBox provides all switches, supplies and status lines needed to run the laser as a stand-alone system. Key Features *Center wavelength: 780 nm *Pulse duration < 100 fs *Output power > 50 mW *Truly turnkey operation *Free-beam output *Saturable-absorber mirror technology *Compact footprint (202 x 122 x 69 mm3) *All necessary control electronics inside *USB interface (optional) *Telcordia-proven components *State-of-the-art fiber technology: robust and reliable all-fiber setup TOPTICA Photonics AG develops, manufactures, services and distributes technology-leading diode and fiber lasers and laser systems for scientific and industrial applications.
