QuixX® diode lasers

Picosecond & CW mode
The laser is able to emit ultrashort pulses down to 50 picoseconds as well as continuous wave (CW). Low pulse-to-pulse jitter <2ps in picosecond mode as well as high stability and low noise emission in CW mode is assured by latest high-end quality electronics. 

User adjustable pulse-shape
In picosecond mode the pulse-shape can be adjusted in shape, height and repetition-rate by software control comfortably. In “low-power”-mode the laser does produce Gaussian shaped pulses without any aftershoot / shoulder. In “high-power”-mode a higher peak and average power is achieved compromising some aftershoot. In the additional “expert”-mode, any pulse-shape between low-power and high-power mode can be adjusted. 

Arbitrary frequency Generator 
The built-in, software programmable, function generator can generate frequencies from 1 Hz to 100MHz with very low jitter. Just like an external high-end function generator.

Programmable delay Generator
For easy synchronization of external devices like cameras, fast detectors or sensors the laser has an integrated delay generator for its SYNC output signal. The Pulse-to-SYNC signal can be delayed by up to 28 nanoseconds with 10 picoseconds in resolution. This function can also be used to daisy-chain multiple QuixX lasers in Master/Slave setups. 

Modulation & gating capability
In both picosecond and CW operation, the QuixX offers full intensity modulation and gating by external analog and digital modulation signals at high frequencies. 

Highest fiber coupling Efficiency
Due to Omicron´s proprietary focal shaping technology, the natural astigmatism of laser diodes is eliminated, producing a high quality laser beam with perfect focusability. In free-space application the laser can be focused near to the diffraction limit resulting in a round, Gaussian focal point. This also enables very high fiber coupling efficiency into single-mode fibers.

ALS Picosecond Laser Diode Systems

The PiLas Systems are diode lasers that emit very short optical pulses with pulse widths down to 20 ps (FWHM). Standard systems consist of a digital electrical pulse generator EIG and an optical head with a laser diode and collimating optics (paralleling optics, single mode fiber output or multimode fiber output versions are also available). The laser diodes of the various models are pre-configured to emit on a fixed wavelength within a spectral range between 375nm and 1670nm, based on all commercial available diode wavelengths. Typical peak powers are in the range of 25mW to more than 1000mW, depending on the laser diode used. The jitter between electrical trigger and optical pulse is about 4ps. Special wavelengths or specifications are available on request.

Wavelengths available – 375nm, 405nm, 440nm, 473nm,

635nm, 670nm, 780nm, 830nm, 850nm, 905nm, 1060nm,

Xiton Picosecond Laser

Xiton offers an industrial grade picosecond laser at 1342nm. Optional frequency conversion upgrades for red and blue laser emission.

The ultrashort laser pulses allow machining without heat induced into delicate materials. Designed for 24/7 3-shift demanding industrial applications. By using a proprietary mode-locking scheme a very long lifetime is guaranteed. This results in extremely low total cost of ownership. Applications are e.g. thin ablation through transparent silicon wafers. Exceptional advantages are shown for flat-panel
display production including processing of OLEDs.
