iChrome
Ultrafast technology has seen an
unpredictable success ever since it was
introduced. Today physicists are still pushing
the limits, e.g. the pulse duration down to
a single optical cycle and the peak power
up to tera- or even petawatt. On the other
hand, many promising applications have
emerged outside the laser laboratories.
Mainly the high peak power and ultrashort
pulse duration make ultrafast lasers very
attractive. Both give rise to nonlinear effects
and open new paths in engineering and
scientific research.
Independent of the application, the key for
successful integration of ultrafast lasers is
the reduction of complexity. Many years
ago, only laser experts could handle such
sensitive devices. Today, one expects
an ultrafast laser to work by pushing a
single button. TOPTICA's answer to these
expectations resulted in several matured
products: The FemtoFiber pro series,
iChrome, PicoFYb and the FemtoFErb.
FemtoFErb / PicoFYb
First of all, these fiber laser systems are
based on polarization-maintaining fibers.
Reliable mode-locking is achieved with a
saturable absorber mirror (SAM). Only high
quality components with extraordinary long
lifetimes are built in. These comply with
telcordia specifications and are suitable
for 24/7 operation. The heart of each
laser – namely the master oscillator and
the amplifier – is completely fiber-based
which makes alignment redundant and the
systems extremely robust.
These and other advantages helped
TOPTICA's ultrafast fiber lasers to become
the source of choice for the following
applications: Life sciences, time domain
terahertz spectroscopy, attoscience and
material processing among others.

Life sciences
Modern biomedical research often involves
advanced laser microscopy. Tunable lasers
account for the variety of fluorescent labels.
Pulsed lasers enable fluorescent lifetime
imaging microscopy (FLIM). Ultrafast lasers
open the door for noninvasive methods
relying on multiphoton excitation such as
SHG, THG or CARS microscopy. While the
techniques become more advanced, the
Ultrafast Technology
for Professional Applications
employed lasers should become easier to
handle. That‘s why TOPTICA‘s fiber lasers
are the product of choice.
Reliable and comfortable in handling, they
allow the users to focus on their scientific
task. Especially the iChrome is a fully
automated and fiber coupled laser designed
for confocal microscopy in the visible range
(488 nm - 640 nm). On the other hand, the
unique flexibility makes the FemtoFiber pro
a versatile tool: Not only picosecond laser
pulses that are tunable from 488 nm to
640 nm but also femtosecond pulses at
780 nm or tunable from 980 nm to 1400 nm
can be combined in a single laser system.

Time-domain terahertz
Material processing
Miniaturized devices will change our life:
Maybe someday micro-meter sized robots
will travel through our blood circuit system
and repair our cells. Today, nanotubes,
nanowires, etc. are fabricated in
nanotechnology centers around the world.
For example, photonic crystals are
produced by two-photon polymerization
(2PP): The exciting property of such
Terahertz technology features the chemical
identification of substances through opaque
materials such as cloth and synthetics,
e.g for quality control and security tasks.
Broadband terahertz radiation is generated
with femtosecond laser pulses: Either they
are focused on antenna devices such as
photoconductive switches based on GaAs
or InP, or they undergo optical rectification
The trend in laser micro-machining goes
from nanosecond to picosecond laser
pulses. Cold ablation without thermal load
is the key for unprecedented precision.
Furthermore, fiber lasers will replace solid
state lasers in this market. Hands-off and
maintenance-free operation, robustness
and compactness, low running costs and
better thermal properties are but only a few
in nonlinear crystals, such as GaP, ZnTe
or DAST. For high power and large
bandwidth of the THz radiation peak power
and pulse width of the laser are crucial.
of the advantages over free-space, bulky
laser resonators.

2-photon polymerization
crystals is their photonic band gap which
prohibits that light of certain wavelengths or
polarizations can propagate through such
a device. This band gap can be designed
by the type and dimensions of the structure
itself which enables the designer to directly
access optical properties.
TOPTICA delivers the fiber laser with
highest peak power at 780 nm that can
be easily integrated in a commercial 2PP
microscope. This enables the user to
write structures with dimensions as big
as 300 µm along the optical axis — the
highest reported with fiber lasers.
TOPTICA offers two ideal laser sources
for THz generation: The FemtoFiber pro
and the FemtoFErb. Both systems
provide outstanding peak power levels
at pulse widths well below 100 fs. The
FemtoFiber pro NIR is the ideal solution
for research labs, thanks to its beneficial
switching possibility between 780 and
1560 nm. Moreover, fast optical sampling
of the THz signal can be accomplished
without moving parts employing the ECOPS
option. The FemtoFErb as an ultra-compact
fiber-coupled system on the other hand is
designed for easiest OEM integration.
TOPTICA's PicoFYb is specially designed
for OEM integration in laser amplifiers. Most
stable laser operation is guaranteed in
respect to amplitude noise, pulse duration,
frequency jitter and reliable mode-locking.
The compact laser head includes all driver
electronics and delivers the laser pulses in
a polarization-maintaining fiber. The typical
wavelengths are 1030 nm and 1064 nm.

Fiber Laser Technology
FemtoFiber pro
Mode of operation
The engine of all TOPTICA's fiber lasers is
a SAM mode-locked ring oscillator. This
configuration – protected by an optical
isolator – is known as most robust against
back reflections of any kind. Running in
the solitonic regime, the oscillator operates
in a well defined state. Special TOPTICA
design ensures full suppression of parasitic
pedestals (Kelly-bands). The soliton pulses
are carefully amplified to very high peak
powers in a subsequent core-pumped

fiber amplifier. This MOPA (master oscillator
power amplifier) platform is all-fiber
and based completely on polarizationmaintaining fibers. In contrast to singlemode fiber compressors, the motorized
silicon prism compressor preserves the
smooth spectral shape. This results in nearly
pedestal-free sub-100 fs pulse shapes in
the time domain. Optional modules convert
the center wavelength into supercontinua,
tunable visible or NIR laser light.
PM fiber technology
SAM mode-locking technology
Polarization-maintaining (PM) fibers preserve
the linear state of polarization under all
circumstances: Temperature, mechanical
stress, humidity or other environmental
influences can‘t disturb the stable laser
operation.
The saturable absorber mirror (SAM) ensures
self-starting and reliable cw-mode-locking.
This passive device efficiently suppresses Qswitching operation. Only intense solitonic
laser pulses are stabilized and supported by
the SAM.

Versatile laser system
An all-fiber master oscillator power
amplifier (MOPA) concept is the basis for
TOPTICA‘s ultrafast fiber lasers. Either
Ytterbium or Erbium doped gain fibers
support ultrashort laser pulses at 1030 nm,
1064 nm or 1560 nm. Depending on the
application, femtosecond or picoseconds
pulse widths are custom tailored. Optional
modules extend the available wavelengths:

Second harmonic generation adds 780 nm.
Highly nonlinear fibers generate an octave
spanning supercontinuum (980 nm 2200 nm). Subsequent second harmonic
generation results in tunable laser light
in the visible range (488 nm - 640 nm).
Fiber delivery makes integration easy.
Finally, customization completes our idea
of flexibility.
Outstanding Performance
Excellent thermal power stability
(e.g. NIR system).
Superb pointing stability of the

Flexible fiber laser
The newly introduced iChrome is a fiber laser with the
flexibility to set automatically the laser output to any
wavelength in the visible – from 488 nm to 640 nm. In
contrast to conventional white light sources, the narrow
bandwidth laser pulses are not filtered out from an
intrinsically noisy supercontinuum. Moreover, even the
coherence of the fundamental laser is preserved during
the frequency conversion processes. This ensures that the
visible light exhibits the best intensity noise performance.
Additionally all optical components are polarizationmaintaining. This results in a stable linear polarization of
the output beam.
Fiber coupled output
The laser output of the iChrome is delivered by a singlemode and polarization-maintaining fiber. Independent
from the chosen wavelength the fiber output exhibits a
smooth TEM00 profile, an excellent beam product with
M2 < 1.1 and a linear polarization with a PER* > 1:100.
The fiber makes the connection between the high quality
light source and the experiment as simple as possible.
Pointing stability is guaranteed and all colors are delivered
by the same fiber.
Fully automated operation
The entire laser system is extremely user friendly: No
alignment procedures of any optical components distract
the user from the main task – to produce results. Besides
the fiber delivery also the full automation of the premium
light source helps to avoid wasting time. The built-in
power PC controls all necessary parameters to ensure
smooth operation every minute, hour, day, week and
month. The power PC also hosts a webserver and is
equipped with an ethernet connection. Therefore, all user
commands can be sent from an ordinary web browser to
the laser system.

Ultrafast, ultra stable, turnkey
The PicoFYb / FemtoFErb laser systems
are turnkey fiber-based picosecond and
femtosecond mode-locked fiber oscillators.
The PicoFYb is ideally suited for seeding
industrial laser systems. The FemtoFErb
is the most compact and cost-effective
source for Terahertz generation.
Key features
The PicoFYb / FemtoFErb laser pulses
exhibit excellent amplitude and frequency
jitter parameters. The PicoFYb is typically
amplified to multi-Watt levels in the MOPA
(master oscillator, power amplifier) laser
systems of our customers.
The FemtoFErb has an output power
of more than 100 mW and fits perfect to
applications such as Terahertz generation
or metrology.
Based on state-of-the-art FemtoFiber
technology, the PicoFYb / FemtoFErb
lasers set the benchmark for the new
generation of ultrafast lasers satisfying the
most advanced industrial requirements.
Applications benefit from the most stable,
compact and cost effective laser design,
but in particular from the unique fiber output
coupling, a key to a modular customer
integration.
The specifications are derived from our
current OEM developments. Further
customization (wavelength, pulse duration,
footprint, interfacing, etc.) is possible under
usual OEM conditions.
