ADD

ALTAIR produces high average power with ultrashort femtosecond pulses (<160 fs) at high repetition rate (80 MHz standard, others optional) in an ultra compact and robust format. ALTAIR is a fibre laser providing high stability and excellent beam quality.

Integrating state of the art high-power fully packaged fibre amplifiers and pulse management, ALTAIR offers remarkable pulse quality at high average power with no maintenance required.

ALTAIR is ideally suited for multi-photon microscopy applications. The 1 µm wavelengths offers many benefits for bioimaging : lower scattering, deeper penetration.
