The Mavericks Cr:forsterite lasers from Del Mar Photonics (San Diego) is an all solid state laser system that is an affordable source of sub 60 femtosecond pulses in the ~1250 nanometer region. It is pumped by a 6-10 watt ytterbium fiber laser. The femtosecond Cr:forsterite laser is tunable over wavelengths from 1230-1270 nanometers, making it suitable for imaging condensed matter and biomedical applications. Laser output can be directly or fiber coupled into microscope systems for confocal florescence and multi-photon imaging.
