ULTRA NARROW LINEWIDTH, CW TI:SAPPHIRE LASER

  • The award-winning SolsTiS is a step-change in continuous-wave Ti:Sapphire laser technology. It’s compact, ultra-narrow linewidth, fully automated, low noise and widely tunable.
 /

Award-winning SolsTiS is a next generation continuous-wave Ti:Sapphire laser designed to meet the needs of pioneering scientists looking for high performance, ease of use, system flexibility and reliability. This fully automated, compact system features a completely sealed, alignment-free cavity with hands-free operation, an unprecedented tuning range, unrivalled power, and the ultimate narrow linewidth, low noise output. SolsTiS has options of high power output up to 5W, linewidths <50 kHz and amplitude noise of less than 0.05%. SolsTiS is made to order giving you the ability to specify your linewidth, output power and wavelength range. Fully integrated accessories such as beam pick-off and fiber coupling are available.

BROAD TUNING RANGE

Continuous tuning from 700 - 1000 nm with a single optics set. Specially optimised systems extend to 670 - 1050 nm. Optional integrated frequency conversion modules can further extend this to cover 210 – 4.5 µm.

ULTRA NARROW LINEWIDTHS

The exceptional passive stability and design flexibility allow for a range of linewidth options from <50 kHz absolute linewidth. Overall, SolsTiS is the quietest and most stable TiS laser available with free running linewidths close to 50 kHz. Using active feedback, SolsTiS can also be locked to an external cavity or reference cell with linewidths of <10 Hz achievable.

HIGH POWER

At any pump power level, SolsTiS is the most efficient TiS laser in the world. Output power levels >6 W are made possible by custom, low loss optics within the laser ring resonator. There is no compromise from having a single device to cover 300 nm, and exceptional power levels are achieved even at the edges of the tuning range. High powers of >2.5 W are possible in SHG.

WIDE CONTINUOUS SCANS

Continuous, single mode, high-resolution scans over >25 GHz. Unique functionality available to automatically stitch together consecutive segments to achieve high-resolution scans over >100 nm with high repeatability and linearity.

COMPACT DESIGN

By far the smallest laser in its class, the core system, including the integrated reference cavity, measures only 29 x 17 x 7 cm (11 x 6.7 x 2.8”). The sealed resonator eliminates dust contamination and enables robust reliable performance. Materials minimise effects from vibrations and thermal variations, resulting in a stable, low-drift laser with anti-humidity, purge ports and easy operation across water and oxygen absorptions.

FULLY AUTOMATED

Wavelength tuning and locking are easy via a web interface or via a published set of TCP/IP controls, facilitating automated control and option to use third party applications such as LabVIEW and MATLAB. Resonator elements are also accessible through external voltage inputs for active feedback.

ULTRA STABLE OUTPUT

Relative intensity noise < 0.1%, with minimal power variations on longer time scales. Robust, automatic locking of cavity elements allows continuous running over long time durations with no interruptions.

INTEGRATED EXTENSIONS

Exceptionally small size, combined with materials carefully chosen to minimize effects from vibrations and thermal variations, result in a stable, low-drift laser. The completely sealed resonator eliminates dust contamination.

SOLSTIS PLATFORM

Adding optional extensions to SolsTiS extends its capabilities to meet specific experimental needs while maintaining the same reliable, high-quality engineering that is at the heart of the core laser system. All modules can be added independently of one another. They also come fully integrated with the core system, featuring interlocking base plates and connecting lens tubes that enclose any beam paths not part of the final output.
