Ti:sapphire is the workhorse of ultra-fast lasers due to its high gain bandwidth, enabling delivery of the shortest pulses and scalable to high pulse energy and average power. KMLabs provides a full suite of mode-locked oscillators and integrated oscillator-amplifier systems, spanning pulse energies from the nJ range to 30 mJ in pulses from 15 to 40 fs.
Computer controlled tuning. Computerised control of the spectral bandwidth and center wavelength with temperature-stabilised optical platform for enhanced long-term stability
Repetition-rate stabilised Capable of synchronising laser pulses with pulses from another laser or with a synchrotron. Electronics lock the output to the customer’s reference signal and can provide timing jitter of less than 150 fs. Stabilisation of the repetition rate allows it to lock to reference signals from 75 MHz to 4 GHz.
High energy pulses. By utilising a cavity-dumping technique an acousto-optic-modulator (AOM) dumps high energy pulses out of the cavity at rates that can be adjusted by the customer from 40kHz to 4MHz and producing >30nJ with <15fs pulses
All Griffin lasers include computerised control of the spectral bandwidth and center wavelength and water-cooled breadboards for maximum long term stability. There are options within the Griffin series that include integrated pump lasers and diagnostics. Griffin lasers are very simple to maintain, since components are easily accessible.
The KMLabs Halcyon™ repetition-rate stabilised oscillator is popular with customers who need to synchronise oscillator laser pulses with pulses from another laser or with a synchrotron. Electronics included with the Halcyon lock its output to the customer’s reference signal and can provide timing jitter of less than 150 fs. Stabilisation of the repetition rate is achieved through multiple features including a temperature-stabilised breadboard, a motorised stage for coarse feedback, and a small piezo-mounted mirror for fast feedback. Due to the flexible design of the Halcyon™, it can lock to reference signals over a very wide range: 75 MHz to 4 GHz.
Low jitter, <150 fs, locking to your RF reference signal
