39 suppliers for picosecond lasers are listed.

Among them:

Onefive GmbH

Onefive has developed a wide range of different picosecond fiber lasers. The Genki platform is based on passively mode-locking and offers pulse durations from 1 to 45 ps, wavelengths from UV to visible and IR, high amplitude and timing stability and low phase noise. The Katana platform offers from 20 ps to nanosecond pulse durations, continuously tuneable repetition rate that can be triggered internally or externally allowing for laser operation in both master and slave mode. Katana has been streamlined to offer high-power picosecond pulses in green, yellow, orange, red and infrared.

How to cite the article; suggest additional literature

A picosecond laser is a laser which emits optical pulses with a duration between 1 ps and (usually) some tens of picoseconds. It thus also belongs to the category of ultrafast lasers or ultrashort pulse lasers.

A variety of laser types can generate picosecond pulses, with other performance parameters varying in wide ranges:

Compared with femtosecond lasers, picosecond laser sources are often more economical. In applications such as micromachining, they offer similar performance.
