TUNABLE, ULTRAFAST TI:SAPPHIRE LASER

  • An ultrafast laser source combining flexibility with stability, reliability and productivity - available as femtosecond, picosecond and fixed wavelength or tunable versions.
 /

Sprite XT is a flexible ultrafast, femtosecond laser source. It delivers stability, reliability and productivity and is equally at home in the lab or as part of an OEM application. Choose your output power (up to multi-Watts), pulse width (femtosecond or picosecond models), wavelength range (fixed wavelength or tunable), and pulse repetition rate (<80 MHz to multi-GHz). All Sprite models are designed for alignment-free and maintenance-free operation and can be controlled from a web browser. It’s ideal for multi-photon excitation (MPE) and FLIM, quantum optics, time resolved spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, pump-probe experiments, microscopy, amplifier seeding, and electro-optic sampling.

ULTRA STABLE

Sprite XT has exceptionally stable power, beam and pulses of any ultrafast Ti:Sapphire laser sources and amplitude noise (<0.1%). Sprite XT auto-aligns once or twice a day, not every few minutes like other systems.

BROAD TUNING RANGE

Sprite XT provides fully automated, simple and rapid tuning from 720-980 nm delivering >1.5 W at the peak. Tuning can be extended to >1000 nm, and frequency conversion modules allow for stable access to visible and IR wavelengths.

COMPACT DESIGN

Sprite XT is less than half the size of comparable lasers. The laser can be self-installed and the power supply easily disconnected from the compact laser head, allowing for one-person movement of the laser to another location or experiment.

FULLY AUTOMATED

Wavelength tuning and locking is 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.

INTEGRATED PUMP

Integrated pump with active pump beam alignment for superb power stability.
