Overview

PHAROS is a single‑unit integrated femtosecond laser system combining millijoule pulse energies and high average power. PHAROS features a mechanical and optical design optimized for industrial applications such as precise material processing. Market‑leading compact size, integrated thermal stabilization system and sealed design allows PHAROS integration into machining workstations. The use of solid state laser diodes for pumping of Yb medium significantly reduces maintenance cost and provides long laser lifetime.

Most of the PHAROS output parameters can be easily set via PC tuning the laser for a particular application in seconds. Tunability of laser output parameters allows PHAROS system to cover applications normally requiring different classes of lasers. Tunable parameters include: pulse duration (190 fs – 10 ps), repetition rate (single pulse to 1 MHz), pulse energy (up to 2 mJ) and average power (up to 20 W). Its deliverable power is abundant for most of material processing applications at high machining speeds.

The built‑in pulse picker allows convenient control of the laser output in pulse‑on‑demand mode. It comes along with an extensive external control interface dedicated for easy laser integration into larger setups and machining workstations. PHAROS compact and robust optomechanical design includes easy to replace modules with temperature stabilized and sealed housings ensuring stable laser operation across varying environments. PHAROS is equipped with an extensive software package, which ensures smooth hands-free operation as well as allows fast and easy integration into various processing devices.

PHAROS is built upon the conventional chirped pulse amplifi­cation technique, employing the seed oscillator, regenerative amplifier and pulse stretcher / com­pressor modules.
