3D polymerization
The VisIR laser is a versatile and flexible platform based on a Master Oscillator Fiber Amplifier (MOFA) concept with frequency
conversion. The master oscillator generates infrared picosecond pulses at 1530 nm with variable repetition rates up to 80 MHz using
the proven gain-switching techniques from PicoQuant. The output of this seed laser is directly connected to a multi-stage fiber
amplifier, which boosts the output from the seed laser by several dB while maintaining the other characteristics of the seed laser
beam like the emission wavelength, polarization and the pulse width.
Average output power > 1.5 W
The high pulse energies of the amplified 1530 nm infrared laser permit an efficient wavelength conversion using single pass second
harmonic generation (SHG). In that way it is possible to generate picosecond pulses at 766 nm with an average output power of more
than 1.5 W (VisIR-765 „STED“). The VisIR can be operated at 12 different internally selectable repetition rates between 31.25 kHz
and 80 MHz and can also be triggered externally by TTL or NIM signals at any repetition rate between single shot and 80 MHz. This
feature is extremely useful for a perfect synchronization of excitation and depletion laser in a stimulated emission depletion (STED)
set-up.
Flexible pulse duration
The laser can be configured with a short pulse of 70 ps or an extended pulse duration of 0.5 ns (FWHM).
The extended pulse duration of 0.5 ns is found to be ideal for e.g. STED microscopy since longer pulses or even continuous-wave
excitation can expose the sample to an unnecessary amount of radiation that can lead to increased photobleaching.
Excellent beam quality
The VisIR features a nearly perfectly circular and gaussian shaped beam profile (TEM00) which can be specified as a value of
M² < 1.1, with a typical figure of about M² ~ 1.02. That is an important parameter for further accurate beam shaping (e.g. “STED
donut”).
Compact stand alone device
The VisIR is a stand alone device with a special design optimized for maximum heat dissipation. It includes all driving functions of the
established PDL series laser driver such as choice of repetition rate and trigger source. An optional remote control for the VisIR
allows to set the trigger source, the repetition rate, and the general output power of the laser.
