Femtosecond lasers

Coherent has extended the performance of their Monaco series of industrial-grade femtosecond lasers by increasing their adjustable pulse repetition rate to a maximum of 50 MHz. A new high energy Monaco provides up to 60 µJ/pulse in the near infrared (1035 nm), or, optionally 30 µJ in the green (517 nm). These improvements provide enhanced performance in precision materials processing applications, particularly for delicate and/or tough materials, and also deliver increased frame rates in demanding multiphoton microscopy imaging applications. All Monaco lasers produce a high quality (M2 < 1.2) beam, enabling tight focusing for high brightness and high spatial resolution. Additionally, the pulsewidth can be user set from under 400 fs to over 10 ps.
