The picoREGEN High-Energy picosecond laser from High Q Laser (Rankweil, Austria) is based on the picoREGEN SCIENCE regenerative amplifier that provides a maximum pulse energy of 3 mJ and a pulse duration of 12 ps. The laser can be operated from single-pulse mode up to a repetition rate of 1 kHz. An additional lamp-pumped Post Amplification Module (PAM) further increases pulse energy, providing a maximum pulse energy of 1 J at a repetition rate up to 10 Hz, while a diode-pumped PAM increases energy to 200 mJ at a maximum repetition rate of up to 200 Hz.
High Q Laser presents the “picoREGEN™ High-Energy”, a picosecond laser with pulse energies up to 1 Joule.
The picoREGEN High-Energy is based on High Q Laser's picoREGEN SCIENCE, a regenerative amplifier providing a maximum pulse energy of 3 mJ and a pulse duration of 12 ps. The laser can be operated from single pulse mode up to a repetition rate of 1 kHz.
By using an additional Post Amplification Module the pulse energy of the laser system can be further increased. There are two options: A lamp pumped Post Amplification Module is leading to a maximum pulse energy of 1 Joule at a repetition rate of up to 10 Hz. A diode pumped set-up increases the energy to 200 mJ at a maximum repetition rate of up to 200 Hz. The available maximum pulse energies vary with pulse duration and have to be customized to individual needs.
The design of the picoREGEN SCIENCE is based on a “modules-in-the-box” setup where the seed laser and the regenerative amplifier are assembled as self-contained modules onto a common thermally stabilized base platform. This guarantees a high spatial and temporal stability at low maintenance cost. Additional optional modules like pulse picker or frequency conversion are integrated in the same way.
To minimize system complexity the pockels Cell and end mirror are integrated in the amplifier module. The seed laser as well as the amplifier is pumped by user replaceable fiber-coupled diode modules (URDM) which, as a consumable, can be easily replaced in the field.
The outstanding specifications at a compact system size renders the picoREGEN High-Energy to a perfect tool for scientific applications in the field of High Energy physics or Nonlinear Optics.
