CW Wavelength Extenders

With various configurations of the Matisse, WaveTrain® doubler, and MixTrain™ frequency mixer, Spectra-Physics offers an all solid state solution for wavelengths ranging from 206 nm to 4.5 µm.

  • WaveTrain® 2 provides simple frequency doubling of single frequency CW laser beams. With greater efficiency than traditional intra-cavity or extra-cavity methods, it can be used to generate the second harmonic of the output of the Matisse® 2.
  • MixTrain enables sum or difference frequency mixing of single frequency CW laser beams in periodically polled crystals. High mixing efficiencies are achieved by precision temperature control to ensure optimal quasi-phase matching over the entire tuning range of the Matisse® 2.
