RPMC Lasers, Inc. now offers rugged, compact, air-cooled, high-energy picosecond lasers providing up to 150 uJ of pulse energy.
These short pulsed lasers combine the advantages of fiber laser technology and the high energies of solid state diode pumped free space amplifiers. Robust fiber-based laser technology makes the APL series a suitable solution for a variety of cold micromachining and imaging applications. These affordable, compact, ultrafast lasers are suited for various cold micromachining needs and deliver the highest precision at an affordable price.
The APL’s 1064 nm laser platform allows them to be tailored to various power, pulse energy, and repetition rates needed for a variety of industrial, scientific, and medical applications. The IR is sufficient for most micromachining applications.
The APL-500-1064 is available with 5 ps pulses and 25 uJ of energy at 10 KHz with 0.5 W of average power at 500 kHz. The APL-4000-1064 is available with <10 ps pulses and 150 uJ of energy at 10 KHz with 4W of average power at 500 kHz.
Custom versions are available at various wavelengths, pulse widths, pulse energy, and power levels. Some 100 ps units have been developed at fixed wavelengths between 3 um and 6 um. Harmonics are available at 532, 355, and in some cases 266 nm.
