Del Mar Photonics
Starter kit enables easy femtosecond lasing
Femtosecond Kit from Del Mar Photonics
The Femtosecond Kit FemtoStart from Del Mar Photonics represents an excellent compromise between time and cost. Containing all necessary optical and mechanical elements together with a thorough instruction, it enables the user to achieve stable femtosecond lasing after a short period of time. FemtoStart kit can be used as introductory system in colleges and universities for undergraduate and graduate training.
FemtoStart Kit is an excellent tool for research groups who would like to learn more about opportunities of using femtosecond laser pulses in a variety of applications including physics, chemistry, biochemistry, biology, new material research, semiconductor physics and optical communications, space research and medicine.
Basic FemtoStart Kit抯 configuration correspond to 100, 50 or 20 femtosecond Ti : sapphire lasers. Optional configurations are also possible. FemtoStart kit has several advantages compared to fixed setups; e.g. repetition rates may be varied from 70 to 140 MHz. We recommend 5 W diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser (Verdi from Coherent or Millenia from Spectra-Physics) as a pumping source, however any Ar-ion laser or diode-pumped solid-state laser with 3 ?5W output power will do the job.

Ti:Sapphire Laser Kits
We are approaching new phase when more and more community colleges and relatively small Universities want to add femtosecond lasers to their research and education labs. They want to get basic kits to teach students from ground up. Del Mar Photonics has a special offer how build femtosecond laser educational course in the most economical way.
The easiest way is to start from CW Ti:Sapphire laser and later upgrade to
femtosecond laser. Note that in order to upgrade to fs it's necessary to have fs mirrors
initially (2 sets to cover whole range). It's also possible to start with a single CW 700-1000 set, and then add two fs sets later.
The specifications for the kit with femtosecond mirrors are as follows:
CW Ti:Sapphire laser kit
Tuning range (@10W pump): 710-980 (two optics sets) or 730-870 nm (one optics set)
CW output power (@10 W pump, 800 nm): >1800 mW
CW wavelength tuning is available only with appropriate options (see below)
<20 GHz (with 1 etalon)
<2 GHz (with 2 etalons)
Femtosecond Ti:Sapphire laser kit
Fs output power (@10W pump, 800 nm): >1300 mW
Repetition rate: 80 MHz
Pulse duration: <100 fs
Spatial mode: TEMoo
Polarization: linear horizontal
Note: Closed-loop chiller or tap water circulation required for operation (included in the recommended pump laser)
