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.
To verify and analyze the output power of your Mai Tai SP laser, we recommend the Ophir 3A (7Z02621) thermal power sensor and Centauri laser power meter. Additional information on this laser measurement equipment can be found on the ophiropt.com website. Other Ophir sensors and meters may also be suitable for the Mai Tai SP, depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
