• third dye cell for high power pump laser, up to 1.5 J/pulse
• user-friendly LabView Software
• temperature-stabilized crystals
• USB port
• remote control via TCP / IP protocol
• smallest footprint

Also available: the LiopStar-HQ for higher repetition rate performance. 
• repetition rates up to 100 kHz
• unique design
• can be pumped by high-power laser, up to 800 mJ/pulse

Additional harmonic output is available via the LSEH extension unit which offers:
• SHG, THG, MAD, SFM, DFM


Options
• exchangeable grating
• FCU autotracking
• mirrored design for all LiopStar available
• dye circulators with fl ow and temperature monitoring


Applications
• laser-induced fl uorescence: LIF
• photolysis
• combustion and atmospheric studies
• light detection and ranging: LIDAR
• Raman spectroscopy
• coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy: CARS
• and much more
