Dan Hickstein, Hyperion Product Manager at KMLabs, gave a CLEO talk on May 13th, discussing our latest developments in laser sources for the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) range. The Hyperion VUV laser system, based on patent-pending "highly cascaded harmonic generation," produces highly coherent laser beams in the 6 ~ 18 eV range with femtosecond pulses at MHz repetition rate. The first few Hyperion VUV systems are being deployed now, intended for applications such as time and angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy and photoionization mass spectroscopy.

A Compact MHz-repetition-rate VUV Source: Implementation, Modeling, and Applications
Abstract: Utilizing highly cascaded harmonic generation, we upconvert a MHz fiber laser to the vacuum ultraviolet (up to 18 eV). We apply the source to combustion-chemistry experiments and conduct numerical simulation to understand the nonlinear generation process.
