Menlo Systems’ fiber-based femtosecond laser sources integrate the latest achievements in fiber technology into easy-to-use products. Menlo Systems’ unique figure 9® design results in reproducible and long-term stable operation. It is based on the well-established Nonlinear Amplifying Loop Mirror (NALM) mode locking mechanism. Both oscillator and amplifier use polarization maintaining (PM) fiber components only, ensuring excellent stability and low-noise operation. The laser is maintenance free, user installed and ready to use at the press of a single button. Customize your laser with the available options to match the requirements of your application. Complete synchronization solution is available with laser and synchronization electronics. All components from one supplier with full automation guarantees hands off operation and more time for your experiments.
