…of mirrors and
other surfaces. Chameleon Vision-S mitigates this
limitation of Ti:Sapphire in two ways. Firstly, by taking
advantage of the higher pump power from the
integrated Verdi-18 pump laser and secondly, by using
extremely low loss and large bandwidth mirrors that…
…waveplate-polarizer combination (not shown). The
spectrally-broadened output from the hollow core fiber is re-collimated by a concave silver mirror (f=0.75 m) before it is both
compressed and measured by the d-scan blue system. Only a few mW of average power is required for the d-scan…
…crystals are thermo-electrically cooled. A single
Coherent Evolution-HE (High-Energy) laser provides the pump
energy for most Legend Elite DUO HE+ systems. An additional
pump laser is configured for power and energy-hungry applications.

As shown in figure 3, a key element of this setup was a differentially pumped hollow fiber
compressor (HFC) developed by Tisch's group that was used to generate the ultrashort pulses.
The other important component…
…quality in imaging applications such as confocal microscopy. How? Optically Pumped Semiconductor Lasers (OPSL) do not suffer from the "green problem" present in many DPSS lasers. Figure 1. Sapphire lasers utilize optically pumped semiconductor technology to produce near infrared laser light that is…
…such as optical pumping of hyper polarized gases or
Rubidium gas  will benefit from fine-tuning the center wavelength of the ECL. We
anticipate that the concept can also be applied to arrays and stacks of high power laser diodes.
…design requires less pump diode power, and uses a
lower drive current, the lifetimes of the pump diodes
are significantly extended.
To further improve longevity, Verdi benefits from the
exclusive PermAlignTM manufacturing process. All

Relaxation oscillations occur in any laser where the
upper state lifetime is longer than the cavity damping
time, i.e., the time for all the circulating power in the
laser to decay (mostly through the output coupler
losses) when the laser pump…

This will reveal the maximum allowable alignment
