The Vitara laser from Coherent (Santa Clara, CA) delivers pulsewidths shorter than 12fs. The product offers automated wavelength tuning over a 755nm to 860nm range and pushbutton bandwidth adjustment from 30nm to 125nm. The output power of Vitara peaks at over 450mW due to its integrated Verdi G 5W pump laser.
The 125-nm maximum bandwidth delivers a specified pulsewidth of <20fs, with a typical pulsewidth of 15fs directly from the laser output. In addition, the optional compact compressor enables the Vitara pulsewidth to be further compressed to 12fs or less. Other options for Vitara include a CEP stabilization module and a Synchrolock module for external pulse timing stabilization.
