Chromacity 520

The Chromacity 520 is a fixed wavelength laser source that delivers femtosecond pulses with high average power in the green.

 

Pumped by high quality pulses from our Chromacity 1040, second-harmonic light at 520 nm is efficiently generated with sub-150-fs pulse durations.

 

An integrated option, with the SHG crystal incorporated within the laser head. This offers more than 500 mW of average power.

 

A separate SHG module that can be used in conjunction with a standalone Chromacity 1040 laser. This offers > 1 W of average power.

The Chromacity 520 is a compact fixed wavelength laser source, which no longer require several hours set up time. Our laser source does not require water cooling and comes with a simple user interface, making it one of the easiest and affordable laser sources to operate.

Tailored to your needs

The Chromacity 520 is engineered with a custom designed and temperature-controlled baseplate, providing an unprecedented level of ruggedness and reliability for this type of laser architecture. We also offer the option of chirped output pulses in addition to a range of pulse repetition frequencies to meet your requirements, making this a laser source that can easily integrate into a number of different applications.

Applications

  • Pump source for OPO
  • Non-linear optics
