Starter kit enables easy femtosecond lasing

Femtosecond Kit from Del Mar Photonics

The Femtosecond Kit FemtoStart from Del Mar Photonics represents an excellent compromise between time and cost. Containing all necessary optical and mechanical elements together with a thorough instruction, it enables the user to achieve stable femtosecond lasing after a short period of time. FemtoStart kit can be used as introductory system in colleges and universities for undergraduate and graduate training.

FemtoStart Kit is an excellent tool for research groups who would like to learn more about opportunities of using femtosecond laser pulses in a variety of applications including physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, new material research, semiconductor physics and optical communications, space research and medicine.

Basic FemtoStart Kit’s configuration correspond to 100, 50 or 20 femtosecond Ti : sapphire lasers. Optional configurations are also possible. FemtoStart kit has several advantages compared to fixed setups; e.g. repetition rates may be varied from 70 to 140 MHz. We recommend 5 W diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser (Verdi from Coherent or Millenia from Spectra-Physics) as a pumping source, however any Ar-ion laser or diode-pumped solid-state laser with 3 – 5W output power will do the job.

Typical test data for Trestles 50 pumped by Ar-ion laser
Configuration: slit manual; Starter- button; Pump source – Ar -3W
Lens f = 100mm
Optics mirror set is Ga10.*
