The InnoLas picolo AOT product range comprises oscillator and oscillator/amplifier (MOPA) units. They operate from 0-100 kHz pulse rate, to > 100 µJ pulse energy and > 100 kW peak power.

One of the distinguishing features of InnoLas lasers is their excellent beam profile.

These efficient laser sources are finding use in a wide range of industrial, commercial and R&D applications. InnoLas picolo AOT lasers provide pulses of one order of magnitude (or more) shorter than from competitive technology. Shorter, more intense pulses can provide the user many advantages. For example, in precision processing and marking, the short interaction time reduces workpiece heating effects and improves quality. In applications like ranging, and in ‘ excite and probe’ studies, short pulses increase temporal resolution. In non-linear harmonic and parametric processes, the high intensity of the short pulses leads to high conversion efficiency.
