Menlo Systems’ femtosecond fiber laser integrates the latest developments in fiber technology and incorporates these enhancements into an easy-to-use solution.
Our patented figure 9® technology delivers reliable and consistent mode-locking, which is ideally suited to ensure long-term stable operation in demanding environments. The YLMO-930 with its PM-fiber design guarantees excellent stability and consistent long-term performance. The YLMO-930 is engineered with life science applications in mind. The pulses can be pre-chirped to attain their shortest width within their intended target sample.
The installation of the laser system is as easy as it gets, taking only a few minutes. For ease of operation, the laser is switched on by the push of a single button. The maintenance free operation translates to a worry-free device that enables our customers to focus their time and resources on their actual application.
Maximize your signal - avoid heating
Get higher multi-photon signals with the YLMO-930 using higher pulse energy levels. The repetition rate of 50 MHz allows to have higher multi-photon signals when using low average powers. Highest signal - minimal heating of the sample.
