With pantented Permacool technology, the RAEA enables repetition rate flexibility (up to 200 kHz) for applications that benefit from high average power.

Kerr lens mode-locked lasers EKerr lens mode-locked lasers from Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories

The Collegiate™ ultrafast Ti:sapphire laser kit is the latest installment of the original KMLabs few-cycle oscillators. When it was introduced in 1994, this was the first commercial Ti:sapphire laser capable of generating pulses less than 12 femtoseconds in duration. Since then, as technology has evolved, KMLabs has been proud to continue pushing the boundaries in ultrafast laser science to some of the most challenging and advanced demands in the research field. Through this evolution, as KMLabs has expanded into offering turn-key laser systems, Collegiate endures as a workhorse user-serviceable laser, providing an entry-level Ti:sapphire laser system with state-of-the-art performance appropriate for both educational and research environments.

laser synchronization devices Elaser synchronization devices from Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories

The KMLabs Halcyon™ repetition-rate stabilized oscillator is popular with customers who need to synchronize oscillator laser pulses with pulses from another laser or with a synchrotron. Electronics included with the Halcyon lock its output to the customer’s reference signal and can provide timing jitter of less than 150 fs. Stabilization of the repetition rate is achieved through multiple features including a temperature-stabilized breadboard, a motorized stage for coarse feedback, and a small piezo-mounted mirror for fast feedback. The KMLabs team works closely with each Halcyon customer to ensure that the system meets their specific needs. Due to the flexible design of the Halcyon™, it can lock to reference signals over a very wide range: 75 MHz to 4 GHz.

nonlinear frequency conversion equipment Enonlinear frequency conversion equipment from Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories

XUUS upconverts ultrafast laser pulses into the Extreme UV (EUV or XUV) or soft X-ray regions of the spectrum. Employing high harmonic generation processes, the output beam inherits the coherent properties of a driving laser such as the KMLabs RAEA with wavelengths that can be tuned from  10 nm to 47 nm. Moreover, customized systems can generate coherent beams with wavelengths as short as 6.5 nm. XUUS employs KMLabs' patented hollow waveguide for the high harmonic upconversion process.

The XUUS hollow-core fiber, or waveguide, architecture enables harmonics generated by the system to be distinguished from other HHG methods, guaranteeing your harmonics originate from the same point in space every time, minimizing any pointing drift. This optimizes repeatability for your experiments. Additionally, the use of a fiber rather than typical gas jet or semi-infinite gas cell target geometries provides superior pressure tunability for phase-matched HHG.

ultraviolet lasers Eultraviolet lasers from Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories

KMLabs Hyperion VUV provides bright femtosecond pulses at numerous wavelengths across the vacuum ultraviolet (VUV) region, from 6.0 eV (205 nm) to 10.8 eV (115 nm). The discrete tunability of the KMLabs Hyperion VUV vacuum ultraviolet source enables researchers to study a wide range of materials and materials properties. A simple computer-selected change of photon energy provides a powerful capability, previously only available at a synchrotron; this ability to easily change the laser wavelength can enhance many experiments. For example, in angle-resolved photoemission (ARPES) experiments, this tunability allows researchers to distinguish surface effects from bulk effects. For time-of-flight (ToF) studies of molecules, the tunability can distinguish otherwise identical isomers. Hyperion VUV is also highly focusable, and the appropriate optics can be used to reach spot sizes below 10 microns.
