Onefive GmbH and the
Laser Group of European XFEL, an X-ray free-electron laser in the Hamburg area
that recently started commissioning, have successfully joined their expertise
in the development and commissioning of an all-fiber front-end as part of a
unique laser system for experiments at the new research facility
Onefive brought in its expertise in low-noise ultrafast laser physics, advanced packaging, industrial-grade manufacturing and systematic testing to build an all-fiber laser system. This laser system is seeded with an ultra-low noise femtosecond laser at 1-um with consecutive pulse picking and amplification. It provides dual output ports for multiple beamlines for simultaneously providing the seed and pump line for a noncollinear optical parametrical amplifier. It is bursted with flexible burst time and can provide burst-to-burst variable repetition rate while keeping other parameters constant. It can be completely remote controlled, is integrated in the European XFEL software environment and the laser head is entirely passively air-cooled for low vibration and excellent beam pointing stability.
Switzerland – Onefive GmbH releases the new Genki - 10 XP picosecond laser featuring
100W output power in a new, compact package, for optimal and cost-effective
workstation integration for advanced material processing.
To satisfy the increasing demand of picosecond laser workstations, the Genki - 10 XP has been optimized to provide up to 100 W of average power and 300 μJ pulse energy at the industry-standard wavelength of 1064 nm. Wavelength conversion options are available as well. Pulse repetition rates up to 80 MHz can be achieved. It also offers burst-mode operation. The laser can be tailored to work at lower repetition rates with even higher energies.
SCIENTISTS REDUCE THE PHOTOBLEACHING EFFECT IN STED MICROSCOPY WITH THE USE OF ONEFIVE SUB-NANOSECOND LASER KATANA HP
The Molecular Microscopy and Spectroscopy group togheter with the Nanoscopy group at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT,
Genova, Italy) have significantly reduced the photobleaching effect in
STED microscopy without the reduction of the spatial resolution. They
combined the time-gated detection technique with the use of the
subnanosecond fiber laser Katana HP as STED laser beam .
The Katana HP laser offers the capability to be externally triggered. This capability allows to synchronize and temporally align the STED pulses to the excitation pulses with the simple use of an electronic picosecond delayer. For these reasons, the use of the Katana HP laser as STED laser significantly reduces costs and complexity of a STED microscope with respect to the use of stretched pulses from a mode-locked femtosecond laser.
Regensdorf, Switzerland – Onefive GmbH is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a finalist for the SPIE Prism Awards 2016 in the Industrial Lasers category. The Prism Awards, also referred to as the “Oscar of Photonics”, is a leading international competition, celebrating the most innovative photonics solutions, which are newly available on the market.
Onefive has been nominated out of a pool of more than 130 applicants for its Katana - 06 HP picosecond laser. Katana - 06 HP is an innovative and unique laser source that can provide both pulsed operation over a broad range of pulse durations, as well as watt-level output power in the spectral range 556-660 nm (yellow, orange and red) that has been otherwise very difficult to achieve up until now.
