Red and Far Infrared Fiber Lasers
MPBC has a complete line of Red and Deep Red visible fiber lasers, the earliest models developed for the cutting-edge Microscopy platforms built in the laboratories of Dr. Stefan Hell, and flow Cytometry platforms built in the labs of Dr. William Telford of the Core Flow Cytometry Facility at N.I.H. where beam quality, reliability, and stability continue to be of the utmost importance.
Red and Deep Red Visible Fiber Lasers are air cooled, available in either an OEM compact package, and / or a 2RU rack mountable package with integrated power supply and are shipped with a user friendly graphical user interface for ease of set up and operation.
MPBC Fiber Laser Technology is so flexible we are able to offer our customers virtually any wavelength in the red spectrum between 620 nm (1240 nm) to 790 nm (1580 nm). To do this we employ our own fiber Bragg gratings to lock the laser wavelength and can produce in a very short turn-around time specific wavelengths addressing your requirement. If you have an application for a laser that is not covered in our current product portfolio, please reach out to us as we work closely with researchers to develop lasers to meet next generation requirements.
