Continuous Wave Visible Fiber Lasers Overview
MPBC’s Fiber Laser Product line has grown out of its highly reliable Raman Fiber Laser deployed for 20+ years in telecom fiber optic systems. Exceptional performance is achieved based on an all-fiber architecture, which draws on MPBC’s telecom design practices. The all-fiber laser design eliminates the need for alignment as no bulk components are used, provides unprecedented wavelength and output power stability, ensures a diffraction-limited linearly-polarized output and TEM00 single mode beam.
MPBC’s Fiber Laser Technology is so flexible that we are able to offer our customers virtually any wavelength between 465 nm (930 nm) to 790 nm (1580 nm). We have enjoyed close collaborative relationships with researchers world-wide developing lasers targeted at their applications.
By employing our own fiber Bragg gratings to lock the laser wavelength, we can produce in a very short turn-around time specific wavelengths addressing specific requirements.
- Narrow Linewidth
- Active Power Stabilization to ensure long term power stability of < 2%
- Excellent wavelength stability to ensure spectral purity (± 0.02 nm)
- Graphical User Interface for easy command and control
- Compact laser head
- Tunable output power (from 20% to 100% of nominal) to adapt to application-specific requirements
- High reliability
- Flow Cytometry
- Fluorescence Microscopy
- Structured Illumination Microscopy
- Super Resolution Microscopy
- 3rd Generation DNA Sequencing
- DNA Painting
- Bio-Medical Research
- Military, and Scientific Research
- Beam: Collimated
- Transverse Mode: TEM00
- Polarization: Linear
- Orientation of Polarization: Vertical to the base
Fiber Coupling Option
- MPBC offers fiber coupling for all of our standard fiber lasers (488 nm - 750 nm) coupled to single mode PM patch cord.
- The maximum output power from fiber for each wavelength depends on output power from our standard VFLs with typical coupling efficiency in the range of 75-80%.
- Single mode PM Patch cord output options include
- Bare fiber
- FC/PC connector (flat 0°)
- FC/APC connector (flat, angled 8°).
