Time-Bandwidth Products AG is the leading manufacturer of industrial and scientific, high power, low noise ultrafast lasers. We are continuously developing lasers focused on several laser applications including:
High-pulse energy picosecond laser systems provide industrial-level reliability combined with the performance features required for many ultrafast material processing
applications. Current diode pumped solid-state systems provide pulse energies into the 100’s of microjoules at 1064 nm wavelength and pulse widths of approximately 10 picoseconds, which allows effective “cold” ablation of most materials with high efficiency. Average power of these systems is scalable up to 50 W and will further increase into the multi-100 W range, allowing for very high speed picosecond micromachining.
The life sciences comprise all fields of science that involve the scientific study of living organisms like plants, animals, and human beings. While biology and medicine remain centerpieces of the life sciences, technological advances in molecular biology and biotechnology have led to a burgeoning of specializations and new, often interdisciplinary, fields. Our company is active in developing ultrafast lasers for several fields including Fluorescent Lifetime Imaging Microscopy (FLIM), TCSPC, Raman microscopy, CARS microscopy, multiphoton imaging, nanosurgery, optical tweezers, to name a few.
Time-Bandwidth Products actively participates in the FP7 EU consortium FastDot (www.fast-dot.eu
) aiming to develop novel laser technologies based on quantum dots for biomedical applications like multiphoton imaging and nanosurgery.
applications Time-Bandwidth Products AG pioneered the development of high pulse repetition rate fundamentally modelocked lasers based on ErYb glass material. The result is the world famous product ERGO-XG
laser, which has demonstrated superior performance over the years in many world prestigious laboratories. The telecomm applications where ERGO plays a critical role include ultrahigh speed transmission systems (100s Gb or Tb / second), optical clocking, multiwavelength source, continuum generation, frequency metrology, to name a few.
Ultrafast spectroscopy is a very wide field of research that is increasing in popularity. It is increasingly interdisciplinary covering research from departments of physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, biology, material science. Some of the methods recently gaining in popularity are fluorescent lifetime spectroscopy, TCSPC, Raman spectroscopy, Coherent Antistokes Raman Spectroscopy (CARS) and other multiphoton modes of spectroscopy.
Our related lasers for ultrafast spectroscopy are Lynx, GE-100, GLX-Yb, GLX-200, Pallas, and Tiger.
might be called any field of research where an ultrafast laser is used as a light source. Some of them that are not included in our other application categories and our lasers are routinely used include photocathode illumination and seeding Terawatt (TW) lasers. Photocathode illumination is performed with a laser amplified system that is seeded by an ultrafast oscillator. Our lasers GE-100
are typically used as such an oscillators. TW class lasers are used in many research fields where such a high peak power laser pulses is needed to create e.g. plasma or light initiated fusion. TBP's laser GLX-200
is typically used as a seed for such cascaded amplifier chain to generate TW laser pulses.
