ELP Series: 0.1-0.5 mJ Pulsed Erbium Fiber Laser

The ELP Series are an “eye safe”* version of our YLP Series maintenance-free pulsed fiber lasers designed for OEM applications. 

These lasers provide an end user with a broad range of pulse widths and repetition rates, peak power and energy per pulse as well as linear or random operation. Custom package and delivery cable options are available.

First manufactured in 1994 for airborne applications, the ELP Series lasers have since been deployed in a vast variety of telecom test, R&D, and medical applications. Now with higher powers, more options and even better efficiency and reliability, the ELP Series remains the best solution for a zero-maintenance manufacturing or a laboratory light-source.

* - “Eye-Safe” operation generally means that eye damage threshold is significantly higher than for 1064nm lasers.  Nevertheless IPG recommends that appropriate eyeware be worn and laser safety procedures be followed.
