…In the past few years, new laser materials have emerged that can produce femtosecond-class pulses. These lasers are mostly based on Yb atoms in various
host crystals (YAG, KGW, KYW, etc.). One important distinction between Ti:sapphire and Yb lasers is that Yb lasers are limited to producing…
Fiber Lasers for Welding
Modern CO2 and fiber lasers easily deliver the beam parameters and power requirements
for keyhole welding. Since almost all metals become increasingly absorptive at shorter
wavelengths, process efficiency is enhanced at the shorter fiber laser wavelength…
…waveguide to convert ultrafast IR pulses to the extreme UV (EUV) or soft x-ray region.
The company's foray into Yb lasers has resulted in the Y-Fi, a highpeak-power fiber laser that is based on clean-pulse all-normal dispersion (ANDi) shaping of the chirped spectral pulse, technology
…the laser can
take the final power level up to a few tens
Laser manufacturers are also providing
the combination of tunability and even
high power by the combination of a Yb
fiber laser and a tunable optical parametric amplifier (OPA). As Yb lasers are

High Repetition-Rate, Femtosecond Yb Amplifiers
bulk gain materials are typically limited to 100s of kHz, Yb fiber amplifiers can operate up to 10s
of MHz, with gain saturation delivering excellent pulse-to-pulse stability.
Reliable Yb fiber-based lasers have only become available in recent years because of several

provides several watts of power across the near-IR.
The Advantages of Yb Fiber Lasers
This next generation of ytterbium fiber-based lasers delivers a unique combination of
…fiber. Yb fiber does not have as
wide an emission bandwidth as
Ti:S, so these lasers are not tunable. Rather, they are designed to
deliver a fixed wavelength within the
1030- to 1080-nm window. Tunable
output is provided by integrating a
tunable OPO and a Yb fiber laser…
