STF-ULT-3400 Tunable Wavelength Ultrafast Fiber Laser

We are proud to introduce the ­first commercial ultrafast ­fiber laser emitting above 3 µm. This compact, maintenance-free and electronically tunable laser system offers unique optical performances for scienti­c applications.

We are proud to introduce the first commercial ultrafast fiber laser in the mid-infrared. This compact and electronically tunable laser system is ideal for scientific and industrial uses.

Benefit from a resonant laser interaction

The STF-ULT-3400 can be tuned precisely for optimal interaction with organic materials

Hydrocarbons absorption spectrum

Depending on the material, the C-H fundamental absorption band is located in the 3.3-3.4 µm window. At these wavelengths, laser-matter interaction can be > 100 times more efficient than CO2 lasers

For industrial applications, the STF-ULT-3400 combines the strong laser absorption of a UV laser (without denaturating the polymer) and the reliability and beam quality of a fiber laser.
