Fixed Wavelength Femtosecond Lasers

Compact and cost-effective ultrafast lasers for life sciences and instrumentation


Now also available at 780 nm!

Axon lasers are priced at a breakthrough price point to grow applications such as two-photon microscopy, harmonic generation microscopy and inspection. High reliability and common fit and form across different wavelengths ease integration processes, with the added functionality of dispersion precompensation and fast power control.


Axon are the first family of femtosecond lasers specifcally designed for instrumentation and OEM integration.

Multiphoton Excitation (MPE) microscopy applications are served by key wavelengths at 780, 920 nm, and 1064 nm, for label free imaging, and all popular fluorescent proteins and calcium indicators.

All models are equipped with dispersion precompensation to provide the shortest pulses at the working plane. Additionally, each version can be fitted with optional Total Power Control (TPC); built-in modulation for fast power control and flyback blanking.

Systems are compact, aircooled and engineered with precision so they may be mounted in wide range of orientations and environments. The control unit can be located up to 7 m from the laser head so any heat and noise is isolated your working area. Integrators further benefit from a common, plug-and-play interface with the same form factor for each wavelength.

Coherent is leading the way with the Industrial Revolution in Ultrafast Lasers. Axon lasers are thus HALT designed (Highly accelerated Life Tested) and HASS screened (Highly Acceslerated Stress Screened) to ensure no maintenance requirements, low cost of ownership and long lifetimes.
