Pulses shorter than 15 fs
We provide high power femtosecond lasers based on a modular optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification (OPCPA) system. Our designed OPCPA systems and upgrade modules can be customized to fit your experimental or industrial needs. The offered laser parameters range from μJ | MHz to mJ | kHz achieving even Terawatt peak power at average power up to 100 W. The pulse durations range from few-cycle (8 fs), over ultrashort (15 fs) to long pulse (30+ fs).
Using industrial picosecond lasers as pump sources and our reliable white light seeder, Class 5 OPCPA systems achieve shortest femtosecond pulses at superior long-term stability.Class 5 Photonics is a spin-off company of DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron) and Helmholtz Institute Jena. Class 5 Photonics is winner of the Start-up Challenge prize organised by OptecNet Deutschland e.V.
OPCPA is the future enabling technology; providing tunable, femtosecond pulse duration, and high power (product of repetition rate times pulse energy), thereby making it possible to reduce experimental or industrial processing times by a factor of 10-100, compared to conventional titanium-sapphire technology.
As a reference customer, we are providing the design and implementation of a Joule-class femtosecond laser system for Queen's University Belfast, Northern ireland. Further, we provided a conceptual design the Extreme Light Infrastructure - Attosecond Light Pulse Source, in Hungary (http://www.eli-hu.hu/).
