Femtosecond fibre laser for biophotonics, with high power and high repetition rate

ALTAIR Series

Femtosecond fibre laser for biophotonics

ALTAIR produces high average power with ultrashort femtosecond pulses (<160 fs) at high repetition rate (80 MHz standard, others optional) in an ultra compact and robust format. ALTAIR is a femtosecond fibre laser providing high stability and excellent beam quality.

Integrating state of the art high-power fully packaged fibre amplifiers and pulse management, ALTAIR offers remarkable pulse quality at high average power with no maintenance required.

ALTAIR is ideally suited for multi-photon microscopy applications. The 1035 nm wavelength offers many benefits for bioimaging : lower scattering, deeper penetration.
