We develop compact laser sources that deliver pulses in the pico- and nanosecond range. We flexibly adapt our short-pulse laser sources to the customer-specific requirements of the application.
These sources use tailored laser designs as well as high-speed laser drivers optimized for high-speed circuits for high output powers based on optimized RF components from our III-V electronics research area. The high-power high-speed switching requirements are nicely in line with the other activities at FBH towards digitization of RF functions, which also rely on fast switching of high powers.
All-in-one pulsed laser source PLS
With its PLS series, FBH offers very efficient pulsed laser sources based on optical and electronic semiconductor components developed in-house. The all-in-one system consists of a mode-locked laser, an innovative pulse picker element and an optical amplifier. The laser source is ideal for applications as a seed laser in materials processing, especially in conjunction with fiber amplifiers.
Depending on the integrated laser are achieved:
- wavelengths 1030 nm, 1064 nm, others on request
- pulse width from 5 to 15 ps
- freely selectable repetition frequencies from the hertz to the megahertz range
- pulse peak power over 20 watts
