PicoQuant indroduced two new picosecond pulsed diode lasers at 596 nm and 510 nm and a new multiparameter seed laser, along with further new products in May at the Laser Wold of Photonics. For the first time green laser light is not based on frequency conversion but directly emitted by the laser diode. The laser can work at any repetition rate up to 40 MHz and generate pulses as short as 130 ps (FWHM).
The second new laser head on display is the first picosecond pulsed diode laser with a wavelength of 596 nm and a variable repetition rate between 10 kHz and 40 MHz. This laser generates pulses with pulse widths below 120 ps (FWHM). With the new multiparameter infrared seed laser, PicoQuant introduced a laser that is targeted especially at seeding of fiber amplifiers for material processing.
