YLMO femtosecond fiber laser family
We have added new laser models to the YLMO family of femtosecond fiber lasers. The YLMO models now cover average output powers from a few milliwatts to several watts, and pulse lengths from <80 fs to several ps. With an average output power of more than 4 W and a pulse duration below 80 fs the YLMO provides highest peak power and is perfectly suited for applications in multiphoton excitation and photo activation. The YLMO with its PM-fiber design guarantees excellent stability and consistent long-term performance. The pulses can be pre-chirped to attain their shortest width within their intended target sample. The pulse power can be also attenuated within microseconds with an integrated fast optical modulator.
YLMO-930 femtosecond fiber laser
The Menlo YLMO-930 in its 2021 package is ready for the challenges in modern life sciences and 2-photon Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) excitation, where a compact and reliable femtosecond laser makes a difference. You can get higher multi-photon signals with the YLMO-930 using higher pulse energy levels and less average output power. The repetition rate of 50 MHz allows our users to have higher multi-photon signals with minimal heating of the sample. The YLMO-930 is a perfect choice for 24/7 operation. The maintenance free operation translates to a worry-free device that enables our customers to focus their time and resources on their actual application. The pulses can be pre-chirped and the pulse power can be attenuated within microseconds with an integrated fast optical modulator.
ELMO High Power: Ideal source for THz generation
The ELMO High Power is an ideal source to generate Terahertz pulses for broadband time-domain THz spectroscopy (THz-TDS). With femtosecond pulses in the range of 50-90 fs, broadband THz emission can be generated. ELMO High Power’s modular design and fiber coupled ports enable manifold multibranch configurations. This enables multichannel simultaneous measurements when used with several emitter/detector pairs. Moreover, Menlo can provide custom fiber lengths with dispersion compensation of up to 30 m, allowing for greater versatility in your THz-TDS layout. We optimize the laser source for best THz performance. The compact design with all PM-fiber and the figure 9® mode locking technology guarantees reliable 24/7 operation in harsh environments.
ELMO 780 High Power: Ideal source for two photon polymerizations
Our ELMO 780 High Power laser with up to 2 nJ pulse energy at 780 nm has been further optimized for two photon polymerization and spectroscopy. With additional chirped mirrors you can dispersion compensate for further optics, like an AOM and microscope objective. With up to 16000 fs² of dispersion compensation, we will deliver 60 fs pulses directly at your sample, enabling the highest peak power to minimize for example the exposure time in 3D printing applications. Excellent stability in rough environments can be achieved with our unique figure 9® mode locking technology for 24/7 operation. The modular concept of the ELMO platform with a handheld second harmonic generation unit enables easy integration and avoids heat dissipation in your optical setup. Additional output ports with amplifiers can be added to the laser system for multicolor experiments. On request, the standard ELMO 780 High Power laser can provide a high-power signal @ 1560 nm for spectroscopy applications.
Complete synchronization solution for Menlo femtosecond laser
We have improved the performance of our all-in-one synchronization solution via updates of the fs laser and synchronization electronics. The optimized package with all components from one supplier guarantees full automation for hands off operation and best performance with more time for your experiments!
C-Fiber 780 High Power: Versatile laser system with lowest timing jitter
The C-Fiber 780 High Power laser is based on our scientific platform and provides up to 3 nJ at 780 nm, and more than 5 nJ at 1560 nm for multicolor experiments. Pulse durations as short as 60 fs offer high peak powers for spectroscopic experiments. To lock the repetition rate of the laser system to an external reference or to another laser you can choose the repetition rate (VARIO option) and synchronize it with our complete and user-friendly locking platform (SYNCRO). Our unique figure 9® design ensures premium performance with an outstandingly low timing jitter on the attosecond level.
Orange femtosecond laser: Best choice for amplifier seeding with highest demands
We improved the output parameters of the Ytterbium based Menlo femtosecond lasers. The Orange laser provides output power of more than 10 W with pulse width down to 70 fs enabling the highest peak power for your applications. The maintenance free laser systems can be equipped with actuators to stabilize the repetition rate and carrier envelope phase (CEP). The outstanding low noise performance together with the fully automated synchronization makes this laser an ideal source for amplifier seeding.
We cover all wavelengths from visible to mid-IR
Menlo Systems offers wavelengths from the visible to the mid-IR, spanning from 500 nm to 15 µm. The new 2021 Menlo Mid-IR system package is more compact and provides higher power levels. We extended the wavelength range down to 3 µm and up to 5 µm with an output power of up to 200 mW. Due to the compact laser head and maintenance free operation, you save both space on the optical table and time for your experiments. Therefore, these laser systems are an ideal and versatile tool for molecular spectroscopy, dual-comb spectroscopy, or nanoscale Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (nano-FTIR).
