Fiber-based femtosecond lasers offer robust and stable operation without the need for constant realignment. The low cost and stability of fiber-based femtosecond lasers mean that even beginner research labs can have a femtosecond pulse source without the need for expensive or complicated equipment. This brings ultrafast research into the realm of undergraduate and other educational environments. With pulse lengths of 100 fs at 1550 nm fiber femtosecond lasers can also be used as seed sources for femtosecond fiber amplifiers. The 1550 nm wavelength of Er-doped fiber lasers also makes them an attractive tool for ultrahigh-speed optical communications applications.
The second harmonic version EFOA-SH with wavelength 780 nm is also available.

Avesta is participating in Ultrafast Phenomena 2018 conference and tabletop exhibition in Hamburg, Germany (15-20 July). We would be glad to discuss any of the ongoing and future projects with the ultrafast community at our tabletop. Hope to see you soon!
Avesta’s facilities will be closed for the New Year break from 30 Dec 2017 till 08 Jan 2018. We will resume all operations on 09 Jan 2018. However, we hope to provide periodic e-mail correspondence during the holidays. We wish you a fruitful and prosperous Year 2018!
