Request demo

Standout features:

  • Very short and clean pulses

  • Robust and stable

  • Flexible repetition rate

  • Maintenance-free & turn-key

  • Integrated dispersion pre-compensation

Applications:

  • Multiphoton microscopy

  • Photopolymerization

  • Ophthalmology

  • OPO pumping

Clean pulses lead to sharp images

Biolit 2 is a compact, air-cooled femtosecond laser designed with multiphoton microscopy and other nonlinear optics applications in mind.

The industrial-grade device is exceptionally robust, affordable and maintenance-free.

A combination of ultra-short (typ. 60 fs) and clean pulses, superior beam quality and lower repetition rate – compared to solid-state siblings – enables unparalleled multiphoton imaging while preserving the object.
