Star product: The femtosecond laser CARBIDE and industrial-grade optical parametric amplifier I-OPA are recognized among the best by the 2020 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards.
Light Conversion has the GECO scanning autocorrelator:
The femtosecond PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers combine millijoule pulse energies and high average powers for your scientific and industrial applications. The compact and robust optomechanical design leads to stable laser operation in varying environments. The use of solid-state laser diodes for pumping of Yb medium significantly reduces maintenance cost and provides long laser lifetime.

Optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA) is the only currently available laser technology simultaneously providing high peak and average power, as well as few-cycle pulse duration required by high harmonic generation and other strong-field physics. Light Conversion’s answer to these demands is a portfolio of cutting-edge OPCPA products based on years of experience in developing and manufacturing optical parametric amplifiers (OPAs) and femtosecond lasers.
The industrial-grade femtosecond PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers have an option for tunable GHz and MHz burst with burst-in-burst capability – called BiBurst. In single pulse mode, one pulse is emitted at a time at some fixed frequency. In burst mode, the output consists of several picosecond burst packets, each separated by an equal time period between each packet. Each packet can contain a number of sub-pulses, which are also separated by an equal time period between each pulse.
High pulse energy femtosecond laser with flexible BiBurst functionality brings new production capabilities to high-tech manufacturing industries such as consumer electronics, integrated photonic chip manufacturing, stent cutting, surface functionalization, future displays manufacturing, and quantum computing.
BiBurst material fabrication areas cover:
|Kerr lens mode-locked lasers||E|
The FLINT oscillator is based on an Yb-doped crystal pumped with a high brightness laser diode module. Generation of femtosecond pulses is achieved by Kerr lens mode-locking. Once started, mode-locking remains stable over a long period of time and is immune to minor mechanical impacts. A piezo-actuator can be included in customized oscillators in order to control the cavity length. The FLINT oscillator can be equipped with a carrier-envelope phase (CEP) stabilization system.
|lasers for material processing||E|
PHAROS is a series of femtosecond lasers combining millijoule pulse energy and high average power. PHAROS features a mechanical and optical design optimized for both scientific and industrial applications.
PHAROS lasers are currently used for drilling and cutting various metals, ceramics, sapphire, glass, and material ablation for mass spectrometry, along with a variety of other applications enabling cutting-edge products and research. With major industrial customers operating in the display, automotive, LED, medical device manufacturing, and other industries, the reliability of PHAROS has been proven by hundreds of systems in 24/7 production environments.
|mid-infrared laser sources||E|
ORPHEUS-MIR is a versatile system optimized for the efficient generation of broadband mid-IR pulses. In general, it is a two-channel optical parametric amplifier (OPA), followed by a difference frequency generation (DFG) stage. The system provides broadband pulses in the tuning range of 2.5 – 11 μm and up to 15 μm with optional narrowband extension. Signal and idler outputs are available simultaneously, but they are a signal-idler pair; thus, their wavelengths are linked. The system architecture is well-suited for high energy and high power PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers.
|optical parametric amplifiers||E|
Optical parametric amplifiers (OPAs) made by Light Conversion set the industry standard for more than 25 years. The TOPAS series devices pumped with Ti:sapphire lasers and ORPHEUS series pumped by ytterbium-based solid-state or fiber lasers are capable of producing 190 nm to 20 μm!
ORPHEUS maintains the best properties of TOPAS series OPAs:
Light Conversion’s OPAs are reliable and simple to use, while still flexible for custom and most demanding applications. Input and output parameters can be chosen in the widest range possible in the market. Using such OPAs, Light Conversion delivers complete spectroscopic laser systems. Femtosecond pulses and high power tunable output together with flexible multi kilohertz repetition rate make the tandem of ORPHEUS and PHAROS or CARBIDE lasers an invaluable tool for multiphoton microscopy, micro structuring, and spectroscopy applications.

The HARPIA comprehensive spectroscopy system performs a variety of sophisticated time-resolved spectroscopy measurements in a compact footprint. It also offers an intuitive user experience and easy day-to-day maintenance meeting the needs of today's scientific applications. Despite its small size, the HARPIA system is easily customizable and can be tailored to specific measurement needs. The system is configured around the HARPIA-TA transient absorption spectrometer and can be expanded using time-correlated single-photon counting and fluorescence upconversion (HARPIA-TF), third beam delivery (HARPIA-TB), and microscopy modules. Switching between different measurement modes is mostly automated and requires very little user interaction. Adhering to the standards set by the ORPHEUS product line, each module is contained in a single monolithic aluminum body ensuring excellent optical stability and minimal optical path lengths.
For a robust and versatile single-supplier solution the HARPIA spectroscopy system can be combined with a PHAROS or a CARBIDE laser together with ORPHEUS series OPAs. HARPIA also supports Ti:sapphire lasers with TOPAS series OPAs.

The HARPIA‑TA ultrafast transient absorption spectrometer features market-leading characteristics such as 0.05 mOD (ΔT/T = 10-4) sensitivity and the ability to work at high repetition rates up to 1 MHz when used with a PHAROS or a CARBIDE laser and an ORPHEUS OPA. A high repetition rate allows measuring transient absorption dynamics while exciting the samples with low pulse energies down to several nanojoules.
Several probe configurations and detection options are available: from simple and cost-effective photodiodes for single-wavelength detection, to white-light supercontinuum probing, combined with spectrally-resolved broadband detection. HARPIA‑TA features integrated data acquisition and measurement control electronics providing advanced features such as

The CARBIDE femtosecond lasers feature an output power of >80 W at 1030 nm wavelength. The laser emits pure pulses with ASE background of <10⁻⁹ and maintains excellent beam quality, industrial-grade reliability, and beam stability regardless of environmental conditions. Continuously tunable repetition rate in a range of 60 kHz to 2 MHz is combined with an in-built pulse picker for output pulse timing and full-scale energy control with <10 microsecond response time, enabling arbitrary shaping of the emission. The pulse duration can be tuned in a range of 290 fs – 10 ps. Excellent power stability of <0.5% RMS is standard. The laser output can be split into a burst of several pulses of pico- and nano- separation while having the ability to modify the burst envelope. The parameters are entirely software adjustable.
