With its new “QuixX” laser series, laser specialist Omicron in Rodgau offers innovative flexibility of picosecond diode lasers.
With the innovative “QuixX” laser series, the German laser expert Omicron provides compact laser modules with fully integrated driver electronics, high precision temperature regulation and beam shaping optics. The laser is able to emit ultrashort pulses down to 50 picoseconds with user-adjustable pulse shape as well as continuous wave (CW) in combination with fast analogue modulation and digital gating / shuttering in the megahertz range.
In picosecond operation, QuixX offers a “narrow-pulse” mode with pure Gaussian pulse shape. In “wide-pulse” mode, the laser is able to emit longer pulses up to one nanosecond and higher peak powers.
For even more flexibility, a so called “expert mode” allows the user to adjust the pulse-shape to the exact needs of the application. Both CW and picosecond operation offer the possibility for laser intensity and peak power modulation with up to three megahertz.
Furthermore, the modules have got an electronic shutter function which can switch the emission in full on/off regime at a bandwidth of more than 150 kilohertz. In pulsed mode the repetition rate can either be triggered by an external synchronization signal, or it can be generated by the internal, programmable frequency generator with up to 100 megahertz.
The delay generator for the SYNC output can be used to synchronize external devices with up to 28 nanoseconds pulse-to-sync delay and ten picoseconds resolution.
The QuixX systems are available with up to 500 milliwatt optical output power in single-mode and wavelengths between 375 and 2090 nanometer. The light output can be either free-space or fibre-coupled with high efficiency.
The QuixX modules can be integrated into new or already existing applications via its RS-232 and USB-2.0 interfaces in an optimal way. For easy use, a comfortable control software is included in delivery.
Typical applications are time-resolved single photon counting, spectroscopy, fluorescence microscopy including FRAP, TIRF, FLIM and STED as well as the use as seed or pump laser for fibre lasers and MOPA systems.
Serial production of the new QuixX picosecond diode lasers by Omicron already started and the lasers will be presented at the world-leading exhibition „Photonics West“ in San Francisco, January 30th to February 2nd, 2017.

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.
Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...
Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.
Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...
University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
