TIGER Femtosecond and Picosecond Ti:Sapphire Lasers

The TIGER femtosecond and picosecond lasers combine soliton mode-locking, a balance between self-phase modulation (SPM) and laser cavity dispersion, with a SESAM device for improved stability and reliable self-starting. The TIGER lasers have a compact, all-solidstate green pump laser integrated into their laser heads. The lasers themselves have no moving parts and require no RF drive electronics for mode-locking.

SESAM passive mode-locking delivers high stability and reliable self-starting without dropping pulses and without complicated or noisy high-frequency mode-locking electronics. It also has a robust solid-state pump laser. The SESAM device facilitates designing customized TIGER laser systems. Repetition rate, wavelength, and pulse widths from femtoseconds to picoseconds can be tailored to meet individual requirements. Additionally, TIGER lasers are less sensitive to pump-laser parameters.
