The impact of laser design on pulse generation, delivery, and consistency
The PicoWay system is designed to deliver a single-peak, high power, short pulse duration picosecond pulse on a consistent basis. This oscilloscope view of a single PicoWay pulse shows how the PicoWay system does just that.
A research study done by Candela’s picosecond technology team, headed by Xiaoming Shang, PhD, Vice President, Laser Technology Research and Distinguished Fellow, found that not all picosecond lasers perform similarly.1
Figure 1. The PicoWay system consistently delivers high power, single-peak pulses (532 nm pulse displayed, 288ps).
The base technology used to drive the laser is an important consideration in a system’s ability to create an ultrashort pulse.

This webinar reviews important considerations in laser evaluation. Perry Tomasetti, with research done by Xiaoming Shang, PhD, explains why laser design means so much when it comes to consistent laser delivery. Watch this webinar if you are considering a picosecond system for your practice.
Before considering a picosecond system purchase, learn about important system considerations in this must-read white paper.
Xiaoming Shang, PhD is a lead laser engineer for the PicoWay system. His years of picosecond technology experience enlighten the reader on the impact of laser design on laser consistency, pulse duration, and more.

The PicoWay system is a true picosecond laser with the shortest pulse durations at available wavelengths. With full beam, multi-beam, and now with Fusion beam technology, the PicoWay system is indicated for wrinkles, acne scars, benign pigmented lesions and tattoo removal. Seven PicoWay system applicators, available in customizable configurations, allow you to select the right tools to meet your practice needs.
