We provide designed OPCPA-systems, upgrade modules and individual custom made laser amplifiers to fit your experimental or industrial needs, with pulse energies ranging from 1 µJ to 1 mJ, pulse durations less than 15 fs, and power ranging from 1 W to 100 W.
Class 5 Photonics is a spin-off company of DESY (Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron) and Helmholtz Institute Jena. We develop high power femtosecond laser systems based on optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification (OPCPA). Class 5 Photonics is winner of the Start-up Challenge prize organised by OptecNet Deutschland e.V.
OPCPA is the future enabling technology; providing tunable, femtosecond pulse duration, and high power (product of repetition rate times pulse energy), thereby making it possible to reduce experimental or industrial processing times by a factor of 10-100, compared to conventional titanium-sapphire technology.
