Fixed Wavelength Femtosecond Lasers

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

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.


The Axon series is the first family of femtosecond lasers that Coherent has specifically designed for instrumentation and OEM integration.

Axon 920 is ideal for two-photon excitation of green fluorophores and calcium indicators such as GCaMP. Similarly, the Axon 1064 laser is perfect for red-shifted indicators. The laser can be optionally equipped with fully integrated Total Power Control (TPC) for fast power modulation and flyback blanking.

Systems are compact, air-cooled, and engineered with precision so they may be mounted in wide range of orientations and environments. The control unit can be located up to seven meters from the laser head so any heat and noise is isolated to the 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 Accelerated Stress Screened) to ensure no maintenance requirements, low cost of ownership, and long lifetimes.
