taccor – Ultrafast Femtosecond Lasers

The taccor family offers a range of femtosecond lasers with a repetition rate of 1 GHz. They are all turn-key products that combine the pump laser and oscillator in a compact mono-block design that greatly reduces the maintenance needs compared to other similar designs.

taccor – Ultrafast Femtosecond Lasers

1 and 10 GHz femtosecond lasers with a compact mono-block design that greatly reduces maintenance needs.


taccor Power

The taccor power is designed and tuned to offer the highest power for the configuration, up to 1.8 W.


taccor Tune

A tuneable wavelength for applications where different wavelengths is required. Controlled via a simple touch-screen control (or software) to alter the output wavelength.


taccor X10

A turn-key femtosecond laser with a 10 GHz repetition rate, delivering more than 1 W of average power in pulses as short as 50 fs.

Highlights External Link Pop Up
Reliable operation

Long, Contamination-Free Operation

  • Remote connection capability – Internet connectivity for control, diagnosis and optimization.
  • Hermetically sealed – Fully sealed cavity ensures long, contamination-free lifetimes.
  • 3 year/9000 hour warranty – Full specification, industry-leading warranty.
Optimized performance

Self-Starting & Maintaining

  • Self-starting and maintaining – The laser starts electronically and constantly monitors its locking profile to ensure continued mode-locking performance.
  • Repetition rate locking – Optional upgrade to allow repetition rate locking to external electronics.
  • Highest power – The laser is optimized during its build to ensure the highest power is delivered.
  • CEP upgrade – This laser can be build as either CEP stabilized or in preparation for future upgrades.
Turnkey operations

Minimal User Interaction

  • Fit and forget user experience, minimal of user interaction is required.
  • No installation required, only needs to be plugged not an electrical power supply.
