Laser 2000 and Semrock introduce new Femtosecond Optics
First mirrors of the new PulseLine Family for low dispersion and high peak powers
(PresseBox) (Wessling, )Ultrafast lasers are a very powerful tool for light microscopy and laser science applications. Femtosecond pulses of light are naturally dispersed when transmitted or reflected by an optic resulting in a reduction in peak power. Quantifying and controlling optical dispersion are important criteria to maintain pulse performance.
Semrock is proud to announce the introduction of the PulseLine™ family of optics that are specifically designed for femtosecond pulsed laser applications. Our initial product offering consists of two high reflectivity, 45 degree mirrors optimized to steer beam pulses in the tuning range of a Ti:S ultrafast laser.
The FS01 – S-pol (FS01-MTiS45S-25.4) and FS01 – P-pol (FS01-MTiS45P-25.4) mirrors are >99.2% reflective with quantified and repeatable Group Delay Dispersion (GDD) characteristics. These mirrors are also manufactured using IBS hard coated technology for exceptionally high laser damage thresholds.
Watch for new additions to the PulseLine family as we add products and capabilities in the near future.
