FCPA DE Series

High Pulse Energy Ytterbium-Doped Femtosecond Fiber Lasers

Based on IMRA’s patented Fiber Chirped Pulse Amplification (FCPA) technology, the industry-leading FCPA µJewel™ series offers sufficient pulse energy for selected material processing at a near-infrared wavelength of 1045 nm. Harmonic generation packages, which convert its output to visible and UV wavelengths, are available.  The FCPA architecture allows users to choose between high energy operation up to 50 μJ pulses at a repetition rate of 100 kHz or 200 kHz, and high average power of 10 W and 20 W at 1 MHz in the fundamental wavelength.  The DE Series allow for material processing at faster rates, depending on the application requirements.
