KMLabs has increased its visibility at conferences and this year, Dr. Henry Kapteyn has been invited to speak at the 6th International Conference on Attosecond Physics (ATTO 2017). The conference is from July 2-7, 2017 in Xi’an, China. Henry will be covering, Far above bandgap photonics: attosecond dynamics of highly excited electrons in materials. ATTO2017 will… Read more »
KMLabs work on direct diode pumped Ti:sapphire (DDPTS) has been highlighted in the June issue of Laser Focus World. By: Sterling Backus, Henry C. Kapteyn, Matt Kirchner and Margaret M. Murnane http://digital.laserfocusworld.com/laserfocusworld/201706?sub_id=r5x3ToNiVOu3&u1=DA0617&pg=60#pg60
Direct diode-pumped Kerr Lens 13 fs Ti:sapphire ultrafast oscillator using a single blue laser diode Sterling Backus, Matt Kirchner, Charles Durfee, Margaret Murnane, and Henry Kapteyn Abstract We demonstrate a direct diode-pumped Kerr Lens Modelocked Ti:sapphire laser producing 13 fs pulses with 1.85 nJ energy at 78 MHz (145 mW) using a single laser diode… Read more »
This year KMLabs will have a presence at Laser Photonics, Munich from June 26th-29th. We will be in Hall B3 at Booth 441/4. Come see Malcolm Warrand and MaryEl Smith to discuss your laser needs.
KMLabs Invites You to Attend CLEO Visit us in booth 2227 It’s always a pleasure to reacquaint with our long-term customers and, of course, meet new ones. We are the go-to company for the most advanced, standard and custom ultrafast ti:sapphire lasers— and now fiber lasers. Come to us to discuss your needs! At CLEO… Read more »
KMLabs’s latest product builds – quite literally – on its successful high-performance Y-Fi product line that delivers the shortest, cleanest, multi-µJ fiber laser pulses. By incorporating a bulk white-light-seeded optical parametric amplifier (OPA) as a second layer on top of the small briefcase-size (30×40 cm) turn-key Y-Fi™ platform, KMLabs Y-Fi OPA™ provides infrared laser pulses, tunable from… Read more »
Over ~>90% of ultrafast science research and development is done with using ultrafast Ti:sapphire lasers, a technology developed nearly 20 years ago. The great advantages of Ti:sapphire lasers are that they are broadly tunable, can achieve very high power with good efficiency and excellent beam quality, while easily producing the shortest pulse durations of <10fs….

In recent work published in Nature Photonics, Dennis Gardner and colleagues from the Murnane/Kapteyn group at JILA used the KMLabs XUUS4 as a light source to achieve the 1st sub-wavelength EUV imaging for any light source, small or large. They also demonstrated coherent imaging of near-periodic samples with record 12.6 nm spatial resolution, at the technologically significant wavelength of… Read more »
Henry Kapteyn and Margaret Murnane will be visiting Ein Gedi, Israel for the FRISNO conference. From March 5 – March 10, 2017 they will discuss both basic science and technology applications of coherent EUV light, as generated by the KMLabs XUUS™.
Margaret Murnane has been awarded the Optical Society of America’s highest award: the Frederic Ives Medal / Quinn Prize. Margaret is the first woman to receive this Medal in its nearly 90 year history. Congratulations Margaret! http://www.osa.org/en-us/awards_and_grants/awards/award_description/ives… Source: KML Site
In summer 2016, KMLabs moved to its new facility at 4775 Walnut St, Suite 102, Boulder, CO 80301. WIth >20,000 sf of space including >5,000 sf of contiguous cleanroom space for production and R&D, KMLabs is poised for growth.
