pulse characterization instruments

The Blueback advanced ultrashort laser pulse characterization device is a real-time ulstrashort laser pulse characterization device specifically engineered to provide a high-resolution measurement for ultrafast oscillators and amplifiers. It is an essential piece of equipment for everyone who depends on accurate information about properties of their ultra-short pulses. With Fluence Blueback you get more than just a single result. You can watch your pulse evolving in real time.

The d-cycle is a compact system for the comprehensive characterization (full electric field) of ultrafast laser pulses. Four different d-cycle models support optical spectra corresponding to pulse durations from 2.5 to 200 fs and work with pulse repetition rates ranging from 10Hz to hundreds of kHz or even MHz.

Coupling the laser beam into the d-cycle is easily achieved in less than five minutes, and a full measurement (including retrieval) usually takes less than 10 s. The intuitiveness of the d-cycle trace provides instant visual feedback for the optimisation of your source.

The d-shot is a single shot version for ultrafast pulses characterization. d-shot is a very practical tool for real-time alignment and optimisation of your compressor or pulse shaper.

Our compact ultrafast autocorrelator is used to characterize ultrafast laser pulses originating from Ti:sapphire and Yb:doped lasers. Featuring a built-in two-photon absorption (TPA) detector, this autocorrelator is ideal for measuring ultrafast femtosecond and picosecond laser pulses at wavelengths from 700 to 1100 nm. The highly sensitive TPA detector allows for measurements of ultrafast laser pulses with high sensitivity by eliminating the need for angle tuning of the SHG nonlinear crystal.

Swamp Optics’ pulse characterization devices are also known by their animal acronyms: FROGs & GRENOUILLEs. These neat and compact instruments:

- yield the pulse intensity and phase vs. time/frequency, in real time

- measure the spatial chirp and the pulse-front tilt

- measure the actual pulse, not the coherent artifact

- require minimal effort, no alignment.

The Chirpscan technique is a perfect extension to a Dazzler for pulse compression optimization.

The large scanning range of the Dazzler allows to measure pulses with large time–bandwidth products, thus making it the ideal tool for the alignment and optimization of a compressor.

Specially developed to characterize the output of Fastlite high-flux MIR OPCPA sources, the Frozzer can measure pulses from 3 optical cycles to 5 ps between 1 and 9 μm. It is thus perfectly adaped to the temporal characterization of Yb, Er, or Tm-doped systems as well as signal, idler and DFG outputs of OPA and OPCPA systems.
