Onefive has released the Genki 10 XP picosecond laser featuring 100W output power in a compact package
Onefive has released the Origami – XP high energy femtosecond laser in a new single-box, air-cooled design. The laser now comes as an all-in-one solution with the laser head, controller, and air-cooling system integrated in one box.
Whilst being as small as 280 x 498 x 155mm the XP only weights 30kg. It provides flexible repetition rate from single-shot to 1MHz and comes with real-time pulse energy measurement and control, especially designed for demanding high-precision applications. Pulse sequences with arbitrary energy can be programmed.
