Chromacity, a provider of ultrafast laser systems, announced the introduction of the Chromacity 520, a 520nm addition to its family of air-cooled ytterbium fibre-based lasers that combine high power with ultrashort pulse durations
The company also announced the commercial availability of the Chromacity OPO, a low-cost, near-infrared optical parametric oscillator (OPO). The product provides a fixed 520nm output at a power of 500mW – 1W and is essentially a frequency-doubled version of the company’s flagship 1040nm laser, the Chromacity 1040. The product also provides the option to deliver dual output at 520/1040nm from a single unit. Like the 1040 product, this product is more compact, easier to use and provides better reliability than legacy laser technologies. With applications in life sciences, materials science, fundamental research and beyond, the product is suitable for integration into microscopy solutions, as well as a wide range of industrial systems.
