The Mai Tai® SP ultrafast laser is the ultimate short-pulse oscillator with an unprecedented level of automation and long-term environmental stability. Designed for seeding ultrafast amplifiers, it is capable of producing a broad range of output bandwidths: 60 nm to 10 nm, corresponding to near transform-limited pulse widths from <25 fs to 100 fs. The bandwidth is user-adjustable via the graphical user interface (GUI). This unique feature allows for seeding sub-35 fs, 120 fs, and 2 ps amplifier systems using the same seed laser without manual realignment.
|At Minimum Specified Bandwidth||>750 mW|
|At 60 nm Bandwidth||>450 mW|
|Tuning Range||780-820 nm3|
|Repetition Rate (nominal)||84 MHz|
|Beam Diameter (1/e2)||1.5 mm|
|Beam Divergence, full angle||<1 mrad|
The Mai Tai SP has exceptional long-term environmental stability. It is built on the proven Mai Tai laser platform with the largest installed base of ultrafast lasers in the industry. These lasers utilize StabiLok® active beam alignment technology, EternAlign™ permanent optics mounting technology, a temperature-stabilized housing and active purge technology to ensure long-term stability under widely varying environmental conditions. The Mai Tai SP uses ProLite diodes, field proven leaders in diode reliability and lifetime – producing uninterrupted output for >40,000 hours.
