Taranis amplifier

TARANIS

Boost your laser power with Taranis product


Fibercryst pioneered the Single Crystal Fiber amplifier (SCF) technology and developed the Taranis product benefiting from a unique, patented, termal management solution for high power pumping.

Combined with high power laser diode, Taranis product allows to easily amplify your seed laser, in continuous or pulsed regime.

Taranis is an industrial component enabling hassle-free integration in your  optical systems: the only requirements are focus of seed signal inside TARANIS and pump/seed alignement.

Why you will choose SCF technology?


Single Crystal Fiber (SCF) amplifiers are the best solution to amplify short pulse lasers in a MOPA (Master Oscillator power amplifier) configuration. They do not suffer from the strongly aberrant thermal lensing effect (that degrades the beam in bulk crystal amplifiers for instance).

 

The advantages of TARANIS technology are :

  • High beam quality
  • Gain performance over a wide range of accessible pulse energies at various regimes
  • Can be casaded in a compact form-factor
  • Suitable for use with fiber-coupled pump diode

 

SFC technology with Taranis module is a good solution to reach high power, energy and gain at the same time. It combines the advantages of optical fiber and bulk crystal.
Moreover, the simplicity of the implementation and the small space requirements make it easy to use.

Yb:YAG amplification examples

 

Seed laser Pump Configuration in Taranis Output (W)
20W / 2MHz / 20ps 120W / 200µm / NA 0.22 Single pass 45W
50W / 3MHz / 50ps 120W / 100µm / NA 0.15 Single pass 100W
55W / 520MHz / 700fs 120W / 200µm / NA 0.22 Single pass 100W
39W / CW 500W / 400µm / NA 0.22 Single pass 130W

Computed example*:

Taranis : Yb:YAG – 1% – 30mm
Pump : 969nm – 120W – 100µm
Configuration : Single pass

* The gain is very sensitive to the spectral bandwidth of the seed laser. The simulations above were achieved with a narrow spectral bandwidth < 3 nm. If you wish use a seed laser with a bandwidth larger than 3 nm, please contact us.
