Advantages of High-Repetition-Rate Femtosecond Lasers
Modern-day solid-state femtosecond lasers, such as the products offered by Light Conversion, operating at multi-kilohertz repetition rates offer a unique combination of pulse energy and stability, making them the laser of choice for scientific research.
In a paper, entitled “Advantages of high-repetition-rate femtosecond lasers,” the authors conclude the following:
In summary, modern-day solid-state femtosecond lasers operating at multikilohertz repetition rates offer a unique combination of pulse energies high enough to produce almost all nonlinear-optical phenomena and, at the same time, they do it 10–100X faster than traditional CPA systems operated at 1 kHz or below. This results in unprecedented brightness of secondary radiation and helps to bypass the inherent fluence limitations imposed by the samples or detection systems. Together with the fact that these lasers are also more stable than their higher-energy counterparts, this makes them the tool of choice for modern research in spectroscopy, microscopy, nonlinear optics, and laser physics.
