Light Conversion

Light Conversion Ltd

With proven competence in laser design and manufacturing, state-of-the-art R&D facilities, and close ties to research programs, LIGHT CONVERSION offers unique solutions for today’s industrial, scientific, and medical challenges. The reliability of our femtosecond lasers has been proven by hundreds of systems operating 24/7 for more than 10 years in the industrial market. Using our knowledge, experience, and highly motivated professional team, we focus on quality and customer satisfaction.

Established in 1994, as a spin-off from Vilnius University Laser Research Center, Light Conversion is a private company now employing more than 70. The company is based in Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania, and has built its reputation on ultrafast laser expertise. The PHAROS is a highly impressive, rugged, industrial design of femtosecond laser aimed at both industrial and scientific customers. Primary applications are in material processing and micromachining, but coupled with ORPHEUS, its dedicated parametric amplifier, it becomes a powerful scientific tool for ultrafast spectroscopy applications. TOPAS, with over 900 systems installed is the world's leading ultrafast OPA. It offers tunability from 189nm to 20 microns and can be pumped by any suitable femtosecond or picosecond amplifier system.

Ultrafast Lasers and Accessories

PHAROS Femtosecond Laser

PHAROS single-unit fs laser

The world-leading PHAROS from Light Conversion is an extremely robust and reliable femtosecond laser system, offering impressive flexibility in a fully industrialised package.

CARBIDE Femtosecond Laser

CARBIDE femtosecond laser

Light Conversion's industrialised CARBIDE femtosecond laser systems nicely complement the PHAROS family, offering output powers of >40W (>400μJ) and >80W (800μJ).

ORPHEUS Optical Parametric Amplifier

ORPHEUS Optical Parametric Amplifiers

The ORPHEUS family is a series of dedicated collinear and non-collinear Optical Parametric Amplifiers with femtosecond or picosecond pulses, for use with the Light Conversion PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers (i.e. pumped at 1030nm). The ORPHEUS OPAs maintain all the excellent features of Light Conversion's hugely successful TOPAS series of OPAs: high output pulse stability throughout the entire tuning range, high output beam quality, full computer control via USB, as well as optional frequency mixers to extend the tuning range from the UV right up to the mid-IR.

CRONUS-3P for Advanced Nonlinear Microscopy

CRONUS-3P is an OPA-based laser source developed specifically for advanced nonlinear microscopy.

FLINT Femtosecond Yb Oscillator

FLINT femtosecond Yb oscillator

The FLINT is an Ytterbium-based femtosecond laser oscillator, pumped by high-brightness laser diode modules, and generating extremely stable ultrashort pulses, is ideal for OPO pumping and nonlinear physics such as multiphoton imaging.

TOPAS Optical Parametric Amplifier

TOPAS Optical Parametric Amplifiers

The TOPAS family is a range of white-light seeded femtosecond Optical Parametric Amplifiers (OPAs), which can deliver continuous wavelength tunability from 189nm to 20 microns with high efficiency and via computer control. With more than 1300 units installed worldwide, TOPAS has become an OPA market leader, and a standard tool for numerous scientific applications.

HIRO Harmonic Generator
