Synergy

Ultra-broadband sub-10 fs Ti:Sapphire oscillator

  • Ultrafast pulses
  • Extreme peak power
  • Dispersive mirror cavity
  • Ultra-low noise
  • Ease of operation

The Synergy™ family is a range of Ti:sapphire oscillators generating pulse durations from sub-10 to sub-20 fs. With a large variety of models available on the market, there is a suitable Synergy oscillator for your ultrafast application with average powers ranging from 500 mW to 1.2 W,and peak powers of up to MW level. Low cost of ownership is ensured with superior efficiency at lower pump power levels as compared to competitive systems.

Reliability and Ultra-low Noise

At the heart of every Synergy, the Dispersive Mirror (DM) based oscillator cavity rests on a thermally-stabilized base plate. Highest quality ultra-low loss optics and compact mechanical components offer unsurpassed pulse duration, power levels and efficiency. The Extra Cavity Dispersion Control (ECDC) unit guarantees ultrafast pulses arrive at the output undistorted. The DM cavity exhibits rock-solid passive stability, ultra-low noise and superior performance due to the radical reduction in the number of components.

High Performance and Flexibility

For applications where shortest laser pulses or highest peak power are required, Spectra-Physics offers the unique Synergy M1 system. Our proprietary DM technology enables the M1 models to sustain the largest bandwidth with a near Gaussian shape and the highest level of peak power. To ensure this outstanding performance over its lifetime,Spectra-Physics is dedicated to providing the highest level of customer care for your Synergy ultrafast oscillator.
