Femtosecond Laser TAURUS
The TAURUS is a femtosecond laser with a laser pulse duration from 750 fs up to 10 ps. With > 10 µJ, the laser provides sufficient pulse energy for amazingly precise material processing without heat input. The ytterbium-based mode-locked fiber laser covers a wide pulse repetition rate range and allows rapid material processing at up to 3 MHz in addition to single pulses.

PHOTON ENERGY is introducing the femtosecond laser TAURUS as a new member of its ultrashort-pulsed laser family. It is a mode-locked fiber laser delivering laser pulses with a pulse duration as short as 750 fs. The customer can actually tune the pulse duration from 750 fs up to 10 ps for best process results. The pulse energy is 10 µJ and enough to ensure a highly precise micromachining process. Due to its very short pulse duration, the TAURUS laser does not create any heat inside or on the surface of the material; it is a purely cold process without any HAZ.
The repetition rate range of this Ytterbium based fiber laser starts from single shot and reaches up to 3 MHz enabling machining at a good pace. Of course the lasers offers burst mode and other standard operating modes.
The diode-pumped TAURUS can be integrated easily due to its compact size and the fact that it is totally air-cooled. The laser consists of laser head and power supply (19″ rack insert) which can be disconnected for installation and service purposes. For the laser head PHOTON ENERGY relies on the design of the CEPHEUS laser head which has proven its stability and robustness for many years.
