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.
