INO’s industrial picosecond fiber laser platform provides laser integrators with unprecedented control over light-matter interaction to address the most demanding laser materials processing tasks. High-frequency repetitive bursts of ultrashort pulses (< 30ps) allow for efficient material removal with minimum heat-affected zone, thereby increasing process quality and speed. The energy deposition rate at the workpiece may be further controlled through pulse-on-demand and pulse burst envelope-shaping features to ensure optimal process parameters. Pulse burst energy up to the mJ level and peak power in excess of 50 kW are readily achieved with outstanding pulse-to-pulse stability for consistent and precise results. Near-diffraction-limited beam output (M2 < 1.3) is achieved using a patent-pending LMA fiber design that allows for unparalleled modal control. In addition, the laser output characteristics remain largely independent of the operating conditions. The optional polarized output with narrow linewidth laser emission allows for efficient harmonic generation from NIR down to the UV.
