Tilt and Pulse Autocorrelator System

Tilt and Pulse Autocorrelator System

The Light Conversion TiPA single-shot pulse-front tilt and pulse measurement autocorrelator is an invaluable tool for the alignment of ultrashort pulse laser systems.

The TiPA is an invaluable tool for alignment of ultrashort pulse laser systems based on the chirped pulse amplification technique. Its unique design allows monitoring and measuring the pulse duration as well sa the pulse fron tilt in both vertical and horizontal planes.

TiPA is recommended to eb used to measure pulse duration from the PHAROS system as well as from the TOPAS and ORPHEUS series of optical parametric amplifiers.

The operation of the TFPA is based on noncollinear second harmonic (SH) generation, where the spatial distribution fof the SH beam contains information on the temporal shape of the fundamental pulse. This technique combines low background and single-shot measurement capability. In single shot mode one can monitor the elliptical pattern of the SH beam in which the width is proportional to incident pulse duration. If pulses have a tilted wavefront, the ellipse of the SH beam is tilted with reference to the plane of pulse polarisation.
