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.
This SHG module can be coupled with the Chromacity 1040 to generate up to 2 W of average power. Applications include the detection of photomask defects via an ultrasonics technique and fluorescence lifetime measurements.
The compact housing enables simple system integration, and a fiber delivery option is also available.
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. Remote installation can be provided.
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 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.
