Femtolasers Produktions has introduced the Femtosource XL 650 chirped pulse oscillator, part of the scientific XL range, which is designed specifically for applications demanding high pulse energies.
More than 650nJ at less than 50fs is available at megahertz repetition rates.
The Femtosource XL 650 represents a new generation of high-pulse-energy, ultrafast, compact Ti:Sapphire oscillator systems.
It is based on the company's patented Chirped Pulse Oscillator technology.
Throughout the extended cavity, a stretched (chirped) pulse circulates, allowing the pulse energy to build up to high levels without causing instabilities.
The patented Dispersive Mirror technology, for low-loss intra-cavity dispersion control, guarantees a broad bandwidth directly from a high-energy oscillator.
This system offers short optical pulses in combination with the high peak powers and pulse energies commercially available from a compact, high-repetition-rate laser system.
The XL oscillator is designed for demanding applications such as materials processing, coherent THz generation, time-resolved spectroscopy and multi-photon processes.
All of these benefit from more than 13MW of peak power provided by the Femtosource XL 650.
