PICUS: Rapidly tunable dual-color picosecond laser

Wavelength conversion in an all-fiber optical parametric oscillator, pumped by a stable fiber laser provides an unmatched combination of tuning speed and tuning range. Our patented tuning mechanism requires no mechanical delay and allows comfortable fiber-delivery of synchronized dual-color pulses. We minimize requirements on maintenance and environmental conditions by polarization-maintaining fiber technology

The PICUS is additionally available in an OEM version. Housed in a standard 19" enclosure, the PICUS OEM is made for easy integration into your imaging device. Two fiber-coupled outputs allow comfortable fiber-delivery of synchronized dual-color pulses offside an optical table. With the same specifications as the red-capped table-top version, the PICUS OEM enables applying coherent Raman imaging in a multitude of environments.
