New Ultrafast Sprite Lasers from M Squared

Sprite-t™ is a new approach to ultrafast Ti:Sapphire laser design, providing the user with a host of features that maximise stability, reliability and productivity. Available in widely-tunable femtosecond or picosecond versions (models XT-F or XT-P), or broad bandwith XP model, Sprite is equally at home in a laboratory or an OEM environment. Download Sprite-t series datasheet.

Sprite-e™ is the world’s first commercially available modelocked semiconductor disk laser that provides picosecond pulses with high average power and superb beam quality in the important 900-1100 nm wavelength region. It is directly pumped and therefore requires no external DPSS laser system. Custom choices of wavelength, tuning range, and repetition rates are available in addition to the standard 975 nm 500 MHz model.  Download Sprite-e datasheet.

Sprite features

  • Ultracompact, rugged, sealed, monolithic designs
  • Hands-free, alignment- and maintenance-free operation
  • Cavity optics mounted on an Invar® resonator sub-plate for superb stability
  • Proprietary InvarianT™ alignment-free opto-mechanical mounts

Sprite applications

  • Optical metrology
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Pump-probe experiments
  • Multi-Photon Excitation (MPE) or CARS microscopy
  • Electro-optic sampling

New Thales Laser Datasheets Uploaded

A number of new datasheets have been uploaded to the relevant web pages on our site for Thales Laser LPSS – lamp pumped solid state – and DPSS – diode pumped solid state lasers. The new design of the datasheets reveal more about the applications the lasers are suitable for and make the specifications clearer and up to date.

Elliot Scientific to distribute IPG Photonics’ low power CW and single frequency fibre lasers

IPG Photonics YLM Laser

IPG Photonics YLM LaserElliot Scientific Ltd. recently announced its agreement to distribute IPG Photonics’ low, up to 20 W, power continuous wave (CW) and single frequency diode-pumped fibre lasers within the UK and Ireland.

IPG Photonics’ advanced commercial/non-telecommunications fibre laser devices are a quantum leap forward and provide the best in diode-pumped solid-state reliability and performance for a broad range of applications.

Elliot Scientific offers three series of rare earth doped fibre lasers that are more efficient, more cost effective, and more than just a ‘like for like’ replacement of lamp or diode pumped crystal lasers. The range comprises:

Ytterbium doped fibre lasers – Light output ranges from 1062 to 1075 nm and these lasers provide a highly compact and mobile light source for a number of scientific and medical applications including optical tweezing. They are available as continuous wave, randomly or linearly polarized models with a standard sub-nm and single frequency, below 50 kHz, linewidths.

Erbium fibre doped lasers – Operating between 1535 and 1600, nm which includes the important telecommunications C and L wavebands, these single frequency lasers are ideal choices for interferometry, coherent beam combining, free-space communication and sensing applications due to their less than 50 kHz linewidth. Linear and randomly polarized options with a standard sub-nm linewidth are also available.

Thulium doped fibre lasers – With an output wavelength within 1800 to 2050 nm, these standard linewidth lasers are ideal for the laboratory, medical and industrial communities who require a wavelength selectable diffraction limited beam, turnkey maintenance-free operation, single mode fibre delivery, compact size and air-cooled modular simplicity.

SAGA Laser gets Energy Upgrade from Thales…

Thales Saga Laser

Thales Saga Laser

The SAGA range of a flashlamp-pumped Nd:YAG lasers have been upgraded to offer up to 2.3 J of energy with an improved Top Hat beam profile. This high energy output is particularly suitable to pump TW femtosecond systems, OPO or dye lasers. Thales Laser also recommend the SAGA for material processing and instrumentation applications. Two models – Standard and Seeded – offer four wavelengths (1064, 532, 355 or 266 nm), while the High Power version is 532 nm only. Each features outstanding beam quality and stability.
