Photonics West 2016: New industrial 16-watts femtosecond laser

Jenoptik shows a new femtosecond disk laser with power upgrade to 16 watts at SPIE Photonics West from February 16th to 18th in San Francisco, South hall of Moscone Center, booth 1823.

Product preview femtosecond laser JenLas femto 16

Since several decades, Jenoptik manufactures lasers for industrial and medical applications and presented one of the first femtosecond lasers for industrial use in the market ten years ago.

At Photonics West Jenoptik introduces a 16 W version as the new top model of its established JenLas® femto series for industrial micro-machining for the first time. The JenLas® femto 16 features a pulse energy up to 80 microjoules, a free and quickly adjustable pulse repetition rate from 100 to 510 kilohertz, single shot ability, an internal SHG option (THG on request) and reliable operation at up to 35°C ambient temperature.

The performance of this femtosecond laser is ideal for drilling injection nozzles and also provides a high productivity in cutting and structuring processes, at higher material removal rates compared to picosecond pulses. In addition, the outstanding quality of machining achievable with this disk laser yields cost reduction at subsequent cleaning steps.

The Yb-doped laser’s typical pulse width of 550 femtoseconds facilitates processes like

  • non-thermal ablation of nearly all materials (damage- and burr-free processing of polymers, NiTi, etc.)
  • nonlinear absorption in transparent materials (efficient machining of sapphire or glass)
  • material-selective ablation in multi-layer systems
  • inner marking of transparent materials
  • scribing of invisible pre-determined break lines.

Reliable 24/7 operation in industrial environments is based on a robust monolithic cavity and long-life, maintenance-free components like powerful pump diodes and a further enhanced oscillator.

Besides laser sources, Jenoptik delivers optical accessories like circular polarizers, beam expanders or F-Theta lenses. The company also offers the development of customized optical solutions from laser to the focus for healthcare and industrial laser applications, as well as worldwide application and service support with subsidiaries in Europe, in the U.S, and APAC region.
