The Picosecond Synchronized Programmable Laser platform incorporates the technological innovative Programmable Laser and the Picosecond Master Oscillator Power Amplifier (MOPA) laser into a one small footprint unit that delivers a single combined and synchronized dual-wavelength output. The Programmable Laser is a tunable and/or sweepable fiber based laser that delivers picosecond pulses at variable repetition rates and wavelengths. All parameters are configurable through a simple and intuitive user interface running off a PC. The ability to rapidly change wavelengths make it highly desirable for non-linear spectroscopic applications including coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) or Frequency Modulated CARS (FM-CARS) and with the dithering option, stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) spectroscopy which are advanced spectroscopic techniques providing a higher sensitivity than the actual Raman spectroscopy. The other advantage of the system is that each laser can operate independently of each other. This introduces a broad range of applications that can further benefit from this platform.
Genia Photonics picosecond synchronized Programmable Laser can also have two higher power lasers synchronized together allowing such system to be a perfect seed to generate tunable Mid-IR wavelengths through a Difference Frequency Generation Crystal or to Generate Tunable THz radiation. Very fast Mid-IR or THz linear spectroscopy could be performed with such laser.
With Genia Synchronized laser systems Raman shift wavenumbers can be measured for a single or multiple selected ranges within the 0 to 4000 cm-1 band
The Picosecond Synchronized Programmable Laser is a 2010 SPIE Prism Awards finalist in the Life Sciences and Biophotonics category.
