Company Description

Fluence sp. z o.o. was founded to commercialize the cutting-edge all-fiber femtosecond technology. The first ultrafast laser R&D in our team was started as early as in 2003. Long years of research and hard work has led our team to find a way to make femtosecond lasers exceptionally environmentally stable and immune to shock and vibration. Nowadays, Fluence consists of a team of highly skilled engineers and scientist with the drive to make a difference and go the extra mile.

We fill the market gap of truly service-free femtosecond lasers. All our laser systems maximize use of the fiber design and free-space optics is avoided wherever possible. Our 1030-nm ultrafast oscillator, the most crucial part of every femtosecond laser, is built in all-fiber technology and eliminates degradable components such as SESAMs.

We are devoted to provide the highest standards of quality and reliability of our products. Client satisfaction is at the very top of the company values, together with the philosophy that a high-quality product should serve a long time without any degradation.

Fluence Forges New Micromachining Frontiers

Warsaw, Poland, November 17, 2021 — Fluence, a femtosecond laser manufacturer with unique all-fiber technology for material processing, life science, and scientific applications, is pleased to introduce the Fluence Ultrafast Laser Application Laboratory (ULAL), a new facility in Wrocław, Poland. The laboratory is equipped with a top-class, high-precision automated micromachining station based on high-power femtosecond lasers.

Intended to develop laser processes for future products and technologies that will forge new frontiers in micromachining for consumer electronics, medical devices, and other applications, the ULAL allows Fluence to test new processing strategies for industry, perform feasibility studies, and identify new applications.

“The new facility will give our customers the hands-on technical experience they need to solve complex laser micromachining challenges in cutting, microdrilling, marking, structuring, welding, scribing, and more,” said Bogusz Stępak, R&D director of laser microprocessing at Fluence.

The micromachining station is comprised of positioning stages, galvoscanners, and various fixed and beam-shaping optics. At the ULAL’s heart is Fluence’s Jasper 30 femtosecond fiber laser, which offers three wavelengths, pulse duration tuning from 230 fs to 10 ps, and different temporal pulse structures.

Covering micromachining at an average power of up to 30 W, with up to 20 MHz rep rates, the Jasper laser offers single pulse and burst mode for process enhancement. This enables splitting of the main pulse into 2–30 pulses, so each provides optimal laser fluence or energy accumulation desired in some applications. Separated by tens of nanoseconds, the pulses in burst mode interact with plasma and open up new possibilities for shaping surface morphology.

Partnerships with SCANLAB, ACS Motion Control, and Direct Machining Control (DMC) allow for the machining of large samples with precise motion synchronization between scanner and linear stages. The ULAL has a SCANLAB excelliSCAN galvoscanner, which offers exceptional beam direction stability and acceleration of 51,000 m/s2 to steer the laser beam around the sample. The galvoscanner works in tight synchronization with an ACS SPiiPlus motion controller as part of an XL SCAN system providing high-accuracy laser processing over a 400 × 600 mm area. Laser process machine control is handled by DMC software. The ULAL is the first and only facility on the continent where XL SCAN can be demonstrated together with a femtosecond laser. In addition, the laboratory has the ability to perform fast glass cutting thanks to partnerships with Holo/Or (using their DeepCleave module) and the Workshop of Photonics (WoP).

The ULAL targets laser micromachining applications such as cutting glass, polymer, metal (including titanium and tungsten) and hard materials like diamond and sapphire; microdrilling; surface structuring; surface functionalization; in-volume and surface marking; selective layer removal; semiconductor scribing; and transparent material welding.

The facility’s higher harmonic generation enables greater precision and improved surface finishes. Second harmonic generation (SHG) and third harmonic generation (THG) processes offer a small beam spot, strong light absorption, and minimal heat accumulation to cut heat-sensitive polymers and achieve smooth surfaces on different materials.

femtosecond lasersS Efemtosecond lasers from Fluence

Halite is a compact, single-box, all-fiber femtosecond laser, specifically designed to meet the most demanding applications in the field of neuroscience, biophotonics, microscopy and engineering. With pulses as short as <180 fs, average power up to 2 W at 1030 nm and the option of second harmonic generation at 515 nm, it is an irreplaceable tool in every lab that needs a reliable, turn-key, ultrafast light source. Thanks to its unique construction and SESAM-free technology it is a cost-effective solution that provides high pulse energy (up to 100 nJ) and an excellent beam quality. Halite’s industrial design facilitates easy integration with both experimental and commercial systems.

industrial lasersS Eindustrial lasers from Fluence

JASPER is a 1030-nm high-power femtosecond fiber laser delivering up to 160 µJ and 20 W average power. With truly monolithic all-fiber front-end this laser provides fast warm-up time, unprecedented long-term stability and hands-free operation. Contrary to free space laser amplifiers, fiber amplifiers ensure unbeatable beam pointing stability even in harsh environment.

OEM laser modulesS EOEM laser modules from Fluence

Our 1030-nm industry-grade femtosecond oscillator is not a usual laser – this is the superhero of laser oscillators. It has special superpowers that make it stand out from the crowd. Super-short yet ultra-fast. Small in size but very stable and robust. The earth may tremble but the laser will operate as usual. Same power, same pulse and no degradation over many years.
