Footnotes:

  1. Due to our continuous product improvement program, specifications may change without notice.
  2. Specifications apply to standard wavelength and standard repetition rate.
  3. For other values, please contact Spectra-Physics.
  4. Measured over 24 hours at constant environmental conditions.
  5. Optional for Element 2 7-500, 10-600, and 20-600. For other models, please contact Spectra-Physics.

Features

Ultrashort Pulses with Highest Stability

With its robust design, the Element 2 oscillator family provides outstanding power stability and superior carrier envelope offset beat note power and frequency stability. With the various Element 2 models Spectra-Physics offers shortest pulses of sub-7 fs with an average power of >500 mW, and sub-10 fs pulses with an average power up to >1000 mW. The Element 2 ultrafast oscillator is pumped with an integrated Spectra-Physics® Millennia® eV™ solid state green laser. The resonator is based on Dispersive Mirror (DM) technology for precise intra-cavity dispersion management and optimum stability for mode-locking. Therefore, Element 2 guarantees highest quality, outstanding peak power, and ultrafast pulses with extraordinary spectro-temporal characteristics even for the most demanding applications.
