Jasper Flex
  • All fiber design
  • Based on truly all-fiber, SESAM-free Fluence Oscillator
  • Long lifetime
  • Unprecedented stability
  • Reduced size
  • Standard 270 fs – 8 ps pulse duration tuning by default
  • Burst mode for process enhancement included by default

Jasper Flex is our new high-power femtosecond laser for microprocessing. Its compact size makes it even easier to use and to integrate into existing systems. It delivers pulses with a maximum energy of 30 µJ at up to 1 MHz repetition rate and as much as 100 µJ in the burst mode. The user-configurable burst mode brings new capabilities in industries manufacturing consumer electronics, integrated photonics, and displays.

We believe that the most important part of the high-power laser is a femtosecond oscillator. It is the heart of our every system. Jasper Flex is based on Fluence’s unique technology of truly all-fiber, SESAM-free oscillator that was tested to operate at 40 g vibration. Additionally, it was assessed in a vast range of temperatures spanning over 50o C. The oscillator together with a fiber preamplifier creates a monolithic construction immune to misalignment. This defines the robustness of the Jasper Flex system.

Pulse energy vs. repetition rate

Jasper is the right choice whenever there is a need for high power and high pulse energy while maintaining a very short pulse duration. Some applications include:

  • Display repair
  • Micromachining
  • Polymer cutting
  • Surface structuring
  • Ophthalmology
  • Pumping of Optical Parametric Amplifiers (e.g. Fluence Harmony)
  • Pump and probe spectroscopy (when used in tandem with Fluence Harmony)
  • FIBS sample preparation for AFM
  • Three-photon excited fluorescence (when used in tandem with Fluence Harmony)
