PICO-05 Picosecond laser for micromachining

PICO-05 from Photonics Laboratories is a picosecond laser built up on an innovative optical scheme where the seed oscillator is repaced with a sole microchip crystal. The idea results in simplified layout, higher reliability and greatly reduced price. Pulse width is around 100 ps, pulse repetition rate is up to 200 kHz, output power achieves 5 W at 1064 nm and 200 kHz.

PICO-05 is a forcibly cooled device. Cooling unit is a water chiller, to be purchased separately.

Power supply unit is 19’’ rack mounted (3U height) and can be driven either via RS-485 machine interface or with 7” graphical display and touch panel.

The laser has an circular beam profile M2 < 1,2.


  • Unbeatable cost effectiveness (based on innovative design)
