    Light Conversion's Pharos femtosecond laser: 15 years of precision

    LIGHT CONVERSION first delivered PHAROSin 2006 – a compact, customizable diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) femtosecond laser. 15 years later, we can now take a moment to remember and celebrate the origin and evolution of PHAROS.

    Light Conversion: PHAROS Modular-Design Industrial-Grade Femtosecond Lasers

    Light Conversion's PHAROS is a series of femtosecond lasers combining millijoule pulse energy and high average power. PHAROS features a mechanical and optical design optimized for both scientific and industrial applications. A compact, thermally-stabilized, and sealed design enables PHAROS integration into various optical setups and machining workstations. Diode-pumped Yb medium significantly reduces maintenance costs and provides a long laser lifetime, while the robust optomechanical design enables stable operation in varying environments.

    Light Conversion Femtosecond Laser CARBIDE series expansion

    LIGHT CONVERSION, the industrial femtosecond laser manufacturer of CARBIDE and PHAROS lasers, is proud to present the update for its CARBIDE series. Along with 80 W and 40 W versions of CARBIDE, we are now offering a new 20 W model. The customer can now select an appropriate power level to fit their application precisely, while simply swapping to a more or less powerful unit without any modifications to the software or other parameters.

    Light Conversion Carbide Femtosecond Lasers for Industry and Science

    Light Conversion's CARBIDE is an industrial femtosecond laser combining 40 W output power and 400 μJ pulse energies. It maintains all the best features of its predecessor PHAROS: tunable base repetition rate of the amplifier from 60 kHz to 1000 kHz, a built‑in pulse picker for pulse‑on‑demand control, computer controllable pulse duration 290 fs – 10 ps. In addition, CARBIDE introduces new technologies including a novel approach to the cavity design supporting fast laser warm up time which is important for medical applications. An intra‑cavity pulse picker allows reduction of cost and lower power consumption. A highly integrated LD driver and control electronics along with an embedded computer control provide lower electromagnetic noise emission. The other improvements provide a few times higher average output power to wall plug‑in efficiency, which also reduces cooling requirements.

    Light Conversion Flint Femtosecond Yb Oscillators

    The Light ConversionFLINT oscillator is based on Yb:KGW crystal end-pumping by high brightness laser diode module. Generation of femtosecond pulses is provided by Kerr lens mode-locking, once started, modelocking remains stable over a long period of time and is immune to minor mechanical impact. The oscillator can be equipped with external electrooptical Pulse Picker and appropriate timing electronics allowing selection of a single pulse at repetition rates up to 100 kHz. Piezo-actuator can be implemented in customized oscillators in order to control the cavity length. FLINT oscillator can also be equipped with Carrier Envelope Phase (CEP) stabilization system.
