Vantage TLB-7100

TUNABLE EXTERNAL CAVITY DIODE LASER – LITTROW

  • Narrow linewidth
  • Wide and fine tuningy
  • Magnetic damping for mechanical stability
  • Automatic laser head recognition
  • Tuning arm viewing window

The Vantage TLB-7100 Tunable Diode Laser is the latest addition to the New Focus™ family of lasers. An external cavity diode laser, the Vantage adopts the popular Littrow design to offer higher power at a variety of wavelengths to meet your experimental needs. Each laser unit is optimized to a user specified wavelength to deliver top performance and mode-hop-free piezo tuning while providing the option to manually coarse tune to another wavelength. The narrow linewidth measured over 50 ms, exceptional mode-hop-free tuning range, and power and wavelength stability make the Vantage a first in class Littrow.

The Vantage TLB-7100 comes standard with the premium low noise TLB-6800-LN controller with laser head recognition to automatically set the diode temperature and current upper limit to ensure maximum performance and diode lifetimes. The TLB-6800-LN includes an internal function generator, variable piezo gain, USB and RS232 communication, feed forward capability, and intuitive digital interface with real buttons to make your lab life easy.

1. Due to our continuous product improvement program, specifications are subject to change without notice.
2. Manual wide tuning and PZT fine tuning. Contact us for all available wavelengths. Specifications guaranteed when factory optimized.
    Select optimized wavelength within tuning range to 0.01 nm in vacuum and contact us for power at specific wavelength.
3. Resolution is 10 mV in PZT (0.01% of full PZT tuning range) through controller front panel or command. When tuning PZT using an external voltage
    source through External Frequency Modulation input, resolution is dependent on voltage source.
4. Current modulation directly to diode through laser head SMA port.
