  • Toptica: Terahertz-Based Plastic Inspection

    Toptica: Terahertz-Based Plastic Inspection

    Many polymeric materials appear – more or less – transparent for terahertz radiation. Researchers and engineers have successfully exploited this behavior for contact-free analysis and non-destructive testing. For example, pulsed terahertz radiation can uncover the thickness of an object, using an "echolocation" technique: In reflection-mode measurements, terahertz pulses strike the object under test, and its front and back side each reflect a part of the incident pulse. The time-of-flight difference, i.e. the time elapsed between the arrivals of the pulse echoes from either side, is directly proportional to the optical thickness of the layer. The method still works if the object consists of several different layers, and TOPTICA's customers have resolved layers down to 10-20 µm, even in ternary and quaternary materials.

    Toptica Product Focus: Continuously Tunable Lasers

    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.

  • Toptica FemtoFiber dichro midIR: Broadband mid-infrared femtosecond laser source

    Toptica FemtoFiber dichro midIR: Broadband mid-infrared femtosecond laser source

    The new Toptica FemtoFiber dichro midIR represents an ideal laser source for mid-infrared spectroscopy and imaging. It provides a tunable broadband output in the wavelength range of 5 to 15 µm (20 - 60 THz, 670 - 2000 cm-1). The unique 400 cm-1 broad emission spectra allow to excite a wide range of materials at the same time.  The air-cooled system is based on TOPTICAs proprietary fiber laser technologies and includes a difference frequency generation (DFG) unit as well as all necessary electronics into the same box. All functions and features are computer controllable by Ethernet or USB interfaces.

  • Toptica DLC TA-SHG pro - Intelligent features and touch control

    Toptica DLC TA-SHG pro - Intelligent features and touch control

    The digital DLC TA-SHG pro offers unprecedented convenience and best specifications for challenging experiments with frequency-converted tunable diode lasers.  

    New conveniences for working with frequency-converted diode lasers!

    TOPTICA’s latest DLC TA-SHG pro systems offer the lowest noise levels, narrowest linewidths and a simpler way to manage laser operation. Thanks to new, automated functions these systems revolutionize the daily work with frequency-converted lasers.

    Intelligent, automated alignment features integrated directly into the laser head transform the work with lasers: With the push of a button, the AutoAlign option re-optimizes the SHG system output power by maximizing the coupling efficiency of the laser into the TA chip and the SHG resonator via built-in intelligence and servo-controlled flexure mirror mounts. The PowerLock option automatically compensates residual drifts caused by changing environmental conditions, offering unvarying stable laser output with constant power. Fiber-coupled systems using the FiberMon option can monitor the optical power coupled to the SHG output fiber. In combination with the FiberMon option, AutoAlign and PowerLock are also available for fiber-coupled systems.

  • Toptica DL pro HP: Powerful, tunable, single-frequency laser

    Toptica DL pro HP: Powerful, tunable, single-frequency laser

    The DL pro HP diode laser features a special resonator design, which allows for higher single-mode output powers from "visible" laser diodes. Manual coarse tuning of the wavelength is possible across the gain spectrum of the diode (for blue diodes approx.  2-3 nm) and mode-hop free fine tuning up to 50 GHz. Standard models are available at 405, 425 nm, and 633 nm; other wavelengths between 370 and 640 nm can be provided on request. The laser features various modulation inputs and includes an isolator. Fiber coupled versions are optionally available.
