Company Description

Light Conversion is a leading manufacturer of wavelength tunable femtosecond laser sources based on TOPAS and ORPHEUS series of optical parametric amplifiers (OPA) as well as diode pumped solid state femtosecond lasers PHAROS and CARBIDE.

PHAROS, the most versatile femtosecond laser amplifier on the market, and the ultra-compact and cost-efficient CARBIDE feature market-leading output parameters along with robust design attracting industrial and scientific customers. PHAROS reliability has been proven by multiple systems working for years in production lines at 24/7 regime. Main applications include drilling and cutting of different metals, ceramics, sapphire, glass, material ablation for mass-spectrometry, etc. Among the customers are major manufactures in display, automotive, LED, medical device industries and others.

Our laser amplifiers are complimented by a strong portfolio of ultrafast products: harmonics modules (provide femtosecond pulses at 515, 343, 257 and 206 nm), OPAs (producing continuous tuning output from ≈190 nm up to ≈20 μm), HARPIA spectrometer, TiPA and GECO autocorrelators.

femtosecond lasers E

PHAROS is a femtosecond laser system combining millijoule pulse energies and high average powers. PHAROS features a mechanical and optical design optimized for industrial applications such as precise material processing. Compact size, integrated thermal stabilization system and sealed design allow PHAROS integration into machining workstations. The use of solid state laser diodes for pumping of Yb medium significantly reduces maintenance cost and provides long laser lifetime.

Tunable PHAROS parameters include: pulse duration (190 fs – 20 ps), repetition rate (single pulse to 1 MHz), pulse energy (up to 2 mJ) and average power (up to 20 W). Its deliverable power is sufficient for most of material processing applications at high machining speeds. The built-in pulse picker allows convenient control of the laser output in pulse on demand mode. The compact and robust optomechanical design features of

Kerr lens mode-locked lasers E

The femtosecond Yb oscillator FLINT 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 impact. A piezo-actuator can be included in customized oscillators in order to control the cavity length. The FLINT oscillator can also be equipped with a carrier envelope phase (CEP) stabilization system.

optical parametric amplifiers E

Optical parametric amplifiers 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 tunable wavelength output, 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. With our standard products, it is possible to combine both – short pulse and narrow bandwidth – optically synchronized pulses. Light Conversion can deliver complete spectroscopic laser systems with high temporal or spectral resolution using multi-beam setups.

spectrometers E

The capabilities of the femtosecond spectroscopy system HARPIA are:

- femtosecond transient absorption / reflection

- femtosecond multi-pulse transient absorption/reflection measurements

- femtosecond fluorescence upconversion

- hundred picoseconds-to-microsecond time-correlated single photon counting (TCSPC)

- automated measurements of intensity dependence of transient absorption and time-resolved fluorescence signal

- time-resolved femtosecond stimulated Raman scattering (FSRS) experiments

- flash photolysis

All-inclusive HARPIA system can provide an extensive comprehension of the intricate photophysical and photochemical properties of the investigated samples.

Switching between different experimental realizations is fully automated and requires very little user interference. The optical layout of HARPIA system is refined to offer both an incredibly small footprint and an easy and intuitive user experience. HARPIA is easily customizable and can be tailored for specific measurement needs.

ultrafast lasers E

CARBIDE femtosecond lasers feature an output power of >40 W at 1030 nm wavelength. The laser emits pure pulses with ASE background of <10-9 and recently updated maximum energy specifications without compromises to the 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. 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. Harmonic generator options permit femtosecond applications at different wavelengths. The parameters are entirely software adjustable.
