Thorlabs: Autocorrelator for Femtosecond Lasers

Autocorrelator Alignment A1 780

  • Ultrafast Pulse Width Characterization for 650 - 1100 nm
  • For Pulses from 40 fs to 1 ps, or Pulses Down to 15 fs with Precompensation
  • Selectable Gain up to 70 dB to Accommodate Large Range of Input Powers
  • Interferogram Signal Output through BNC
  • Scan Rate of 5 Hz
  • Compact Footprint: 6.90" x 5.53" x 4.82"

Thorlabs' FSAC Interferometric Autocorrelator provides approximate pulse width measurements in the 650 - 1100 nm wavelength range. Well suited for diagnostics of femtosecond Ti:Sapphire lasers, it consists primarily of a modified Michelson interferometer with a nonlinear detector at the output.

A BNC connector outputs the autocorrelation signal, which can be viewed on any oscilloscope with >1.5 MHz bandwidth. An example of the direct output from the FSAC is shown in the graph to the right. A photodiode amplifier with selectable gain from 0 dB to 70 dB provides compatibility with a large range of optical input powers, up to a maximum average power of 150 mW.

Intuitive, easy-to-reach controls on the outside of the enclosure allow the user to optimize the resolution and fringe contrast. The controls for the delay arm enable a full scan range of 50 fs to 10 ps (i.e., ±25 fs to ±5 ps), and a micrometer tunes the detector's position for maximum signal.

nLIGHT Introduces World’s Brightest Multi-Mode Diode Laser

element

nLIGHT, the technology leader in semiconductor and fiber lasers, introduces the industry’s brightest multi-mode diode laser. This new addition to the element® diode laser portfolio emits 200 W from a 105 µm fiber, 0.15 NA. In only one year, nLIGHT’s new element® surpassed their own previous record for the industry’s brightest fiber laser pump with over a 25% increase in power and brightness.  

This key milestone for fiber coupled diodes was achieved through innovative developments in both chip and packaging technology. The brightness of element® pumps has revolutionized the architecture of high power fiber laser and direct diode systems. Based on cascaded single-emitter laser diodes, high power fiber coupling and simplified packaging, the element® platform offers the highest brightness diodes in the industry today. Available at wavelengths from 793 nm to 976 nm, and power levels up to 220 W, these lasers are the highest performance diode lasers for next generation fiber and solid-state laser pumping.

German quantum initiative QUTEGA starts with optical single ion clock

TOPTICA MDL pro 400x650

The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has initiated a strategy process within the field of quantum technologies that stressed the importance of this field for economy and science in Germany. This assessment is in accordance with European and international evaluation. In order to implement first results of the strategy process, the BMBF has selected three pilot projects addressing important developments in quantum technologies. The first pilot project “optIclock - optical single ion clock” has started in May 2017.

The goal of the project led by TOPTICA Photonics AG and the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is to realize a demonstrator device for an optical single ion clock within three years. The research consortium – Ferdinand Braun Institute Berlin, High Finesse GmbH, Menlo Systems GmbH, PTB Braunschweig, QUARTIQ GmbH, Qubig GmbH, TOPTICA Photonics AG, University of Bonn, University of Siegen und Vacom GmbH – obtains 4.5 Million Euro BMBF funding. Together with a contribution of 1.5 Million Euro from the participating industrial partners, the total financial volume of the project is 6 Million Euro.

Toptica Product Focus: Continuously Tunable Lasers

TOPTICA Tuesday 20170530 400x650 CTL

Wide mode-hop-free tuning is important for many exciting applications: for example resonant excitation of small structures like quantum dots and micro-cavities as well as molecular spectroscopy or components testing. TOPTICA is specialized in tunable diode lasers with excellent precision, reliability and ease-of-use.

For example, TOPTICA’s CTL – continuously tunable laser – enables mode-hop-free tuning of up to 110 nm at several central wavelengths. Wide scans can be performed with highest resolution and narrow linewidth, and CTL features high absolute and relative wavelength accuracy as well as high power.

In combination with its fully digital controller DLC pro, the CTL laser is easy to use and operate via touch-screen and knobs as well as via remote PC GUI and command language. The low noise and drift levels of the controller make the CTL series even more stable and lowest-noise.
