Coherent Launches Turnkey 550 mW, Sub-10 fs Laser

(PresseBox) (Santa Clara, Calif., ) The latest member of the Vitara family of extreme performance, closed-box, ultrafast oscillators from Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) (Nasdaq: COHR) - the Vitara UBB -provides hands-free access to pulsewidths under 10 femtoseconds, with options below 8 fs on request. Vitara UBB (Ultra BroadBand) achieves its short transform-limited pulsewidths because of its very broad bandwidth (> 200 nm at the -10 dB point). Its unique combination of short pulsewidths, broad bandwidth, high reliability and ease-of-use make Vitara UBB the ideal laser for applications in terahertz pulse generation, optical coherence tomography (OCT), pump-probe spectroscopy, multiplexed CARS spectroscopy, non-linear microscopic imaging and seeding short-pulse amplifiers.

By integrating Coherent's field-proven Verdi G pump laser into the robust opto-mechanical design and applying Coherent's exacting industrial laser manufacturing processes - including rigorous HASS (Highly Accelerated Stress Screening) - Vitara is engineered for reliability and performance. In addition, ease-of-use features such as electronically adjustable bandwidth control and PowerTrack active pump beam alignment make the Vitara-UBB an outstanding productivity tool in today's results-driven research environment.
