OneFive KATANA pulsed laser


If you need a versatile, sub-nanosecond laser system designed for all industrial applications, the KATANA laser is an excellent choice.

In the standard configuration, the KATANA provides pulses of 35 ps duration but other options – from 30 ps up to 10 ns – are available. Depending on the model, the pulse repetition rate spans from pulse-on-demand up to 100 MHz. The standard is either 0.05 to 1 MHz or 20 to 80 MHz.

  • Lightweight

Product Description

Master and Slave operation

The KATANA’s unique design allows operation in master or slave configurations to provide extreme flexibility to users. 

Robust and maintenance-free 

The KATANA has been designed with maintenance-free 24/7 industrial operation in mind to eliminate down-time and cost of ownershipNo alignment is required making the KATANA maintenance-free and ensures you a low cost of ownership.

Combining the KATANA with a SuperK Extreme provides a complete source for super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. The KATANA serves as a depletion laser while the SuperK Extreme is a multi-wavelength system platform offering a spectrum between 400nm and 2400nm.

Generate pulses of arbitrary amplitude
The KATANA can operate in burst-mode, which allows generation of pulses of arbitrary amplitude and sequence.

Flexible output
Choose the output that suits the application: Isolator or collimator, single-mode or polarization maintaining fiber.
