FIRST IN PHOTONICS
A world leader in ultrafast laser systems including PHAROS, CARBIDE, ORPHEUS and the highly acclaimed TOPAS systems as well as the HARPIA and CHIMERA spectrometer systems.
Established in 1994, as a spin-off from Vilnius University Laser Research Center, Light Conversion is a private company now employing more than 70. The company is based in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and has built its reputation on ultrafast laser expertise. The PHAROS is an all-new, rugged, industrial design of femtosecond laser aimed at both industrial and scientific customers. Primary applications are in material processing and micromachining, but coupled with ORPHEUS, its dedicated parametric amplifier, it becomes a powerful scientific tool for ultrafast spectroscopy applications. TOPAS, with over 900 systems installed is the world's leading ultrafast OPA. It offers tunability from 189nm to 20 microns and can be pumped by any suitable femtosecond or picosecond amplifier system.
Light Conversion's CARBIDE is a single-unit integrated, ultra-compact femtosecond laser system offering high average output powers of >10W, pulse energies of >100µJ per pulse at 1030nm with pulse durations of <290fs.
The PHAROS from Light Conversion is a compact, single-unit, Yb:KGW femtosecond laser system designed to be turn-key out of its box. Delivering <180fs pulses high average powers of up to 15W and 2mJ per pulse from single shot 1000khz repetition rate at 1028nm.
The FLINT oscillator is based on Yb:KGW crystal end pumped by high brightness laser diode module, generating femtosecond pulses with high output power in the range of few watts (pulse energy up to 25 nJ).
ORPHEUS is a dedicated collinear optical parametric amplifier for use with the Light Conversion's PHAROS laser. The ORPHEUS generates tunable, femtosecond pulsed output from 630-1020nm (signal) and 1040-2600nm (idler) at a wide range of repetition rates from 1kHz to 1MHz.
HIRO harmonic generator for the PHAROS laser providing high power harmonic radiation at 515nm, 343nm and 258nm wavelengths.
Highest conversion efficiencies (> 30%) and the widest tuneable spectral range (190nm-20µm). The Light Conversion TOPAS range offer a range of pulse energies up to 1mJ and durations as short as 20fs.
Topas White non-collinear OPA for (NOPA) giving high conversion efficiency to ultrashort 10-30fs pulses and high energy output.
Ligh Conversion's SHBC is the second harmonic bandwidth compressor for the PHAROS laser.
The Light Conversion TiPA single-shot pulse-front tilt and pulse measurement autocorrelator is an invaluable tool for the alignment of ultrashort pulse laser systems.
Transient absorption spectrometer Harpia is an instrument for measuring femtosecond transient absorption spectra and kinetics.
