Wild Cat Laser System

Applied Energetics Wild Cat Laser product line are ultrashort pulse (USP) laser systems that cover the pulse energy “spectrum” from nanojoules to over 1 mJ! Our Wild Cat Lasers are uniquely suited to deliver the pulse energy intensities required for demanding applications such as:

  • Micro-machining
  • Thin film scribing
  • Photomask repair
  • Time-resolved spectroscopy
  • Biological diagnostics
  • Defense
  • Laser R& D
  • Turn-key operation
  • Low maintenance
  • High reliability
  • Optional pulse stretcher & compressor
  • Customized controls
  • Built in diagnostics: energy, pulse stability, auto-correlator, wavelength control

The compact Ocelot femtosecond laser specifications are:

  • Diode pumped Yb:KYW gain media
  • Wavelength adjustable from 1025 - 1050 nm
  • Average power > 1.0 W
  • Spectral bandwidth >3 nm
  • Over 20 nJ/pulse
  • Pulse width 350 fs
  • 30 MHz repetition rate
  • M² ≤ 1.5 Gaussian mode

The Leopard Ultra Fast Laser Amplifier in conjunction with the Ocelot produces:

  • > 1 mJ per pulse
  • 0.8 to 10 ps pulse width range
  • 1 kHz to 5 MHz repetition rate range with pulse picker
  • > 100 Watts average at 30 MHz, non-CPA operation

Customers are welcome to visit our state-of-the-art Laser Applications Center (LAC) and see our versatile Wild Cat Laser in use for a wide variety of material processing applications. Our LAC provides customers the capability to prove and define new processes with higher average power for higher throughput, reduced risk, and short project schedules. The Wild Cat Laser product line delivers pulse energy intensities that remove material via ablation without undesirable thermal effects.

Please contact us about how a Wild Cat Laser can be used for your demanding application and using our LAC to process samples for you.
