Customer inquiry:

I am working up a grant proposal, and I would like to get a price estimate for a laser system. Specifically, I need >=0.5W of laser power at 685-690nm with <=1MHz linewidth. I believe your DYE-SF-077 dye laser with a 6W pump would meet these specifications. I am also interested in the 40GHz smooth scanning option. In addition, I am wondering how much extra the Ti:Sapphire option is.

I've attached a paper describing some polarizability measurements that we want to continue using a ring dye laser. We plan on extending our polarizability measurements to a dipole forbidden transition, and the dye laser's power will be helpful for driving this transition.

1. Actively frequency-stabilized, continuous-wave, single-frequency ring Dye laser, model DYE-SF-077
Unique DYE-SF-077 laser has more narrow linewidth for Dye lasers on the present market. DYE-SF-077 laser has super-narrow linewidth (< 100 kHz) and unique Auto Re-lock function which is extremely useful in a work with frequency stabilized laser.

General description
?Ring design, three wavelength selectors: birefringent filter, thin and thick etalons, electronically controlled thick etalon to ensure laser operation in a single longitudinal-cavity mode.
?Ultra-narrow line width up to < 100 kHz/sec rms: active frequency stabilization to an external reference cavity, special fast PZT actuator with extended response bandwidth.
?Unique function Smart Auto-Relock that allows uninterrupted laser operation in the frequency stabilisation mode under arbitrary external perturbations.
?Actively thermostated high-finesse reference cavity, frequency drift <40MHz/hr.
?External lock capability for stabilization to an absolute reference (e.g. iodine saturated absorption line).
Wavelength range, power
?Spectral ranges 570-630 / 630-700 nm
?Laser optimized at factory for primary operation wavelength at 689 nm
?Output power at 685-690 nm 1W or better with 10W pump (DPSS, 532 nm, TEMoo).
?TEMoo mode, linear polarization.
General design
?Absolutely dry dye-jet laser: the laser has a reliable shutter for the dye solution during powering up and switching off the circulation system.
?Most of the mounts are placed on a horizontal base plate, which is also the top element of the compact rigid 3-D frame made from three invar rods that ensures high stability of the optical element positions.
?Ease of adjustment, simplified laser alignment in the ring configuration because of preliminary optimisation of the elements in the linear cavity, exceptionally accurate alignment of the pump beam position.
?Premium sapphire nozzle.
?Enclosed cavity with nitrogen purge port.
?Ergonomical and reliable electronic control unit featuring a built-in generator for smooth scanning of the laser frequency.
Dye Circulatuon System
?Compact and powerful system of dye solution circulation with a leak-free magnetically coupled pump.
?Efficient system for suppression of pressure fluctuations in the dye circulation loop.
?The dye solution circulation system of DYE-SF-077 is designed to make the procedure of dye change convenient and clean. Laser DYE-SF-077 may be shipped with several circulation systems, in which case switching between working spectral ranges will be extremely fast and simple.

Frequency-stabilized CW single-frequency ring Dye laser DYE-SF-077 pumped by DPSS DMPLH laser installed in the brand new group of Dr. Dajun Wang at the The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
DYE-SF-077 features exceptionally narrow generation line width, which amounts to less than 100 kHz. DYE-SF-077 sets new standard for generation line width of commercial lasers. Prior to this model, the narrowest line-width of commercial dye lasers was as broad as 500 kHz - 1 MHz. It is necessary to note that the 100-kHz line-width is achieved in DYE-SF-077 without the use of an acousto-optical modulator, which, as a rule, complicates the design and introduces additional losses. A specially designed ultra-fast PZT is used for efficient suppression of radiation frequency fluctuations in a broad frequency range. DYE-SF-077 will be used in resaerch of Ultracold polar molecules, Bose-Einstein condensate and quantum degenerate Fermi gas and High resolution spectroscopy
