Eureka – High Repetition Rate Fiber Based Picosecond Laser (PSL)

Eureka Picosecond Laser

The fiber-based picosecond laser (PSL) is an actively mode-locked fiber laser with repetition rates available from 5 to 40 GHz.

This picosecond laser provides a stable and reliable optical clock with turnkey operation. Along with a portable design, the Eureka series are portable lasers, with user-friendly front panel control knobs for flexible adjustment of wavelength and output power. The wavelength can be tuned throughout the C-band. The timing jitter is as low as 50 fs and the side mode suppression is better than -75 dB. An output power of greater than 20 mW obviates the need of an additional optical amplification stage.

The PSL-10-TT C-band 5 ~ 20 GHz picosecond fiber laser offers continuously tunable repetition rate from 5 to 20 GHz that provides a stable and reliable optical clock with turnkey operation. The pulse width can be tuned from 1.5 to 10 ps, with transform-limited spectral width and a better than -20 dB pedestal.

The PSL-40-1T C-band 40 GHz picosecond fiber laser is an actively mode-locked fiber laser with a repetition rate from 20 to 40 GHz that provides a stable and reliable optical clock with turnkey operation. The pulse width is 0.8 ps, with transform-limited spectral width and a better than -20 dB pedestal.

The Eureka series of lasers are rugged, stable and an industry standard, with millions of hours of field use.

"Calmar's products have continued to perform well, even after several years, and are much lower maintenance than our other mode-locked lasers"
