Chromacity 520

A robust 520 nm femtosecond laser for biomedical imaging and semiconductor applications

The reliable 520 nm femtosecond laser is a fixed wavelength source that delivers ultrashort-pulses with high average powers 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.

 

The Chromacity 520 can also be used in the detection of photomask defects using lithography. Compact laser housing enables simple system integration, and fiber delivery ensures stable average powers > 2 W.
