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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
