New And Powerful Contenders In The Femtosecond Oscillator Market

Few-cycle, short-pulse, optimised for maximum output power and pulse energy

by Bradley Mayson-Cooper | Wednesday 18 July 2018

Laser Quantum has released two new products in the gecco and venteon femtosecond oscillator ranges: the gecco power and venteon boost. Both products have been designed to maximise output power and pulse energy, surpassing the values achieved by any other gecco or venteon laser models.

The gecco power is a fully equipped, compact femtosecond laser in a sealed enclosure. Designed for simple installation and system integration, gecco oscillators features a highly compact, vibration resistant laser head with a finesse pure 532 nm laser as the integrated pump source, and a separate fully featured control unit. With an average power of >1W and a <20 fs pulse duration the gecco power is well suited to Raman spectroscopy and microscopy, and amplifier seeding. Repetition rates between 70-110 MHz are available, with optional repetition rate locking to an external source.

The venteon range of few-cycle pulse femtosecond lasers feature stable performance with minimal intervention, an integrated pump laser, and measured pulses approaching transform limit. All venteon cavities exclusively use DCM mirrors that are created by ion beam sputtering techniques to ensure unsurpassed phase control and pulses that approach the theoretical values available. The resulting pulse energies for the venteon boost are greater than 11 nJ, and average powers larger than 900 mW, the highest values delivered by a venteon oscillator. The venteon boost gives a Fourier-transform-limited pulse duration of <10 fs and is ideal for applications such as two-photon microscopy, ultrafast time-domain spectroscopy and ASynchronus Optical Sampling (ASOPS).
