Tunable Ultrafast Lasers

The new higher powered Blaze from Radiantis is the first commercial “one box” femtosecond oscillator & matched Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) allowing the user tunability from 730 nm to 4000 nm.

A 532 nm pump laser, computer controlled Ti:Sapphire oscillator, OPO and spectrometer are packaged together for maximum stability, compactness, control and simplicity.

Some of the benefits of our design include:

  • Everything you need is in the box, including the 532 nm pump laser.
  • Compact footprint, 84 x 67 cm, you’ll have room for your experiment on your optical table!
  • Fully automated, includes dedicated control software and drivers.
  • Flexible: three output ports: Ti:Sapphire (730-1020 nm), OPO signal (1000-1550 nm), OPO idler (1620-4000 nm)
  • 100% Ti:Sapphire power or 100% of the OPO power available. Includes Ti:Sapphire bypass.
  • High power: 2.2 W from Ti:Sapphire, 800 mW signal, 250 mW idler.
  • Dynamic dispersion compensation included. Optimise your pulsewidth for a particular wavelength and microscope.
  • Virtually maintenance free.
  • Optional SHG module for 365-730 nm tunability.

A major application area for these systems is nonlinear microscopy applications where an easy to use, cost effective, compact, flexible, stable, broadly tunable laser system providing short pulses is required.

Some of the other applications these systems are suitable for include:

  • CARS
  • Time resolved spectroscopy
  • Vibrational overtone spectroscopy
  • Multiple wavelength pump probe experiments

You never know in which direction your research may go in the future.  Blaze gives you the flexibility you need.
