Features

Efficient

Combining data in the time and frequency domain allows efficient characterization, evaluation and documentation of the laser pulses. With the new compact design, Femtometer requires minimal space since it can be positioned either horizontally or vertically.

Versatile

The Femtometer dispersion compensated design offers high fidelity pulse measurement down to 5 fs. It offers unique flexibility due to the removable detection modules, allowing the characterization of ultrafast oscillators using the MHz detector and of amplified pulses using the kHz detector. Operation as a plain Michelson interferometer is also possible. A special MHz detector is available for measurements in the focus of microscopes. Combined with a laptop computer (not included) for data acquisition, Femtometer yields a portable characterization tool offering several data export options.

Digital Storing Oscilloscope

The oscilloscope software module, designed to display the autocorrelation trace, offers a large display and all necessary settings for efficient, easy handling.

Spectrometer Module

The spectrometer software module shows the laser spectrum, including center wavelength and FWHM bandwidth.

Online Evaluation

Standard features are calculations of center wavelength, spectral width and pulse duration. The system is self-calibrating, based on the speed of light.
