Due to their compactness, ultrafast fiber lasers make excellent seed sources for
Ti:sapphire amplifiers. For example, the

Coherent Legend Elite Duo ultrafast amplifier, pumped
by a pulsed Coherent Evolution laser. The amplifier is
seeded by a titanium:sapphire Coherent Vitara laser
oscillator that is pumped by a low-noise Coherent Verdi
laser. The amplifier output beam is…

from an autocorrelator signal measured by a Coherent SSA (Single-Shot Autocorrelator). For other seed lasers, please contact factory.
…machining.With the integrated process shutter, the user can select single pulses out of the 100 kHz or 200 kHz pulse train. The system uses a fiber seed laser to generate femtosecond pulses at 1030 nm. The pulses are amplified and conditioned in a thermally stable amplifier with superior beam…
