• Laser Quantum ASOPS Engine

    ASOPS

    Asynchronous optical sampling (ASOPS) is a method for time domain spectroscopy on ultrashort time scales which does not rely on a mechanical delay stage and thus enables scan rates in the kilohertz regime. Laser Quantum’s ASOPS technology has been developed and improved over 15 years for applications in spectroscopy using femtosecond lasers. The first commercial ASOPS system has been released to the market in 2005. Since 2010, the 3rd generation stabilisation unit based on the patented DDS technology (direct-digital-synthesis, DDS) has emerged, ensuring a time resolution better than 50 fs over a full scan range of 1 ns when used in combination with two 1 GHz Ti:Sapphire laser systems. When employing ASOPS there is a small difference in the repetition rate of the pump and probe lasers respectively, which leads to a difference in the pulse-to-pulse separation between pump and probe laser beams which increases linearly with Δt= ΔfR/fR2. TheASOPS Engine consists of two femtosecond laser systems with almost identical repetition rates, the patentedTL-1000 ASOPS stabilisation unit and a fast acquisition card for high-speed measurements. The ASOPS Engine has been available so far with only the 1 GHz taccor laser range, and is now also available with theventeon and gecco laser series which run at a repetition rate of 84 MHz.

    The two femtosecond lasers are working in a master slave configuration in which the repetition rate of the slave laser is controlled to be equal to the master laser repetition rate up to a small offset using a phase locked loop. The difference between the repetition rates depends on the lasers employed and typically is 100 Hz (for 84 MHz) up to 10 kHz (for 1 GHz systems). For specific purposes, the TL-1000 ASOPS unit supports values even beyond those between 4 µHz and 20 kHz. The difference frequency can be easily controlled using a touch screen. The lock procedure between the lasers employed is achieved using a push button. Laser Quantum’s patented stabilization electronics enables a very high time resolution over the complete measurement window and enables the highest time resolution values on the market today.

  • Laser Quantum USB Spectrometer

    USB spectrometer

    The spectra of Laser Quantum's broadband venteon oscillators are difficult to measure with standard Si-based CCD-spectrometers. Limited by the detector sensitivity, these devices are only suitable to cover a spectral range up to 1050 nm, which is not enough for the broadband spectra of state-of-the-art femtosecond lasers such as venteon ultra, which cover a spectral range up to 1200 nm. So far only expensive and scanning optical spectrum analysers have been suitable for a reliable oscillator characterisation.

  • Laser Quantum taccor family femtosecond lasers

    taccor

    With the taccor family, Laser Quantum offers a range of femtosecond lasers with a repetition rate of 1 GHz. They are all turn-key products that combine the pump laser and oscillator in a compact mono-block design that greatly reduces the maintenance needs compared to other similar designs.

    The taccor one is a laser that can be supplied with a wavelength between 740 nm and 930 nm to match the application. We adjust the cavity to obtain the required wavelength. It is also available with a selection of pump laser to deliver the required optical power.

    The taccor power has an output wavelength centred around 800 nm and is designed and then tuned to offer the highest power for the configuration. This leads to output power up to 1.8 W. The taccor ultra has an output wavelength around 800 nm but unlike the taccor power, is designed and then tuned to create the widest possible spectral bandwidth and the shortest possible pulse durations.

    The taccor tune uses a simple touch-screen control (or software) to alter the output wavelength between 740 nm and 880 nm or 780 nm and 930 nm, making this laser ideal for applications where different wavelengths will be required.

    The taccor x10 is a turn-key femtosecond laser with a 10 GHz repetition rate, delivering more than 1 W of average power in pulses as short as 50 fs.

  • Laser Quantum venteon CEP5 femtosecond laser

    venteon CEP5

    The Laser Quantum venteon CEP5 laser is a complete carrier-envelope-phase (CEP) stabilised laser system that utilises the exceptional spectral characteristics of the venteon ultra oscillator for a direct realisation of sub-two cycle CEP stable laser pulses with less than 50 as timing jitter. The CEP5 locking approach is the most natural way of locking the CEP by only filtering the spectral wings and is thus efficient and low-noise. Most importantly, it does not affect the properties of the ultrashort output beam by avoiding refractive elements as an AOFS in the beam path. In addition to the CEP-ready octave-spanning oscillator, this system includes an f-to-2f interferometer for fCEO beat generation next to a low-noise pump laser with CEPLoQ??? technology, locking electronics by Menlo Systems (Syncro) and measurement equipment.

  • The Laser Quantum torus and its use in Brillouin scattering applications

    Laser Quantum torus

    Read these two papers to find out more about how the Laser Quantum torus laser can be used in Brillouin scattering applications:

    The first paper by G. Scarcelli et. al. demonstrates a label-free microscopy technique of contactless access to biomechanical properties . This technique is based on Brillouin light scattering and the method uses the Laser Quantum torus, a single-longitudinal mode laser. This new method not only makes physical contact obsolete to access these properties, but also increases the resolution onto the order of the wavelength used.

    To read the full paper please click here.

    The second article by J. Zhang et. al, uses Brillouin spectroscopy to determine the mechanical properties of material. This paper looks at parallel detection, where the Brillouin shift of hundreds of points can be measured simultaneously. Parallel detection is a major step forward in bringing this technique towards real world acquisition speeds. Brillouin scattering complements Raman spectroscopy as a label-free spectroscopy technique, also being able to work in e.g. an aqueous environment experiment in which the torus laser is used.

  • Laser Quantum Venteon OPCPA

    venteon

    The Laser Quantum venteon OPCPA provides a unique combination of a few-cycle pulse duration with a pulse energy in the µJ-regime at a high repetition rate. The excellent output stability, and the ability for a CEP-stabilised output, makes this amplifier the ideal source for nonlinear spectroscopy, high harmonic generation and applications in attosecond physics. In contrast to more commonly used Ti:sapphire amplifiers, the unique parametric amplification process of the venteon OPCPA gives rise to a much larger gain bandwidth which maintains the excellent few-cycle pulse duration through the amplification process.

  • Laser Quantum torus: Noncontact three-dimensional mapping of intracellular hydromechanical properties by Brillouin microscopy

    torus

    Recent studies by G. Scarcelli et al. detail how the Laser Quantum torus 532 is being used to develop a label free microscopy technique based on Brillouin scattering, capable of imaging intracellular processes with vastly improved optical resolution. Intracellular processes such as the interaction between the liquid and solid phases in the cytoplasm have a critical role in determining how cells deform and move. The most effective way to monitor these processes is in their natural microenvironments, which requires all measurements to be done in situ, hence the need for a label free mapping technique. This approach will enable further understanding of how cells change during ageing, injury healing and disease pathogenesis.

    Laser Quantum is pleased to announce the successful acquisition of Venteon Laser Technologies GmbH, Garbsen, Germany; a market leader in ultra-short-pulse femtosecond lasers, oscillators, amplifiers and characterisation equipment.

    Venteon GmbH has integrated Laser Quantum’s pump lasers into its Ti:sapphire laser systems for a number of years and, more recently, the two companies have collaborated on product development to the benefit of their customers. Pictured above is the Venteon Pulse CP, a complete carrier-envelope-phase (CEP) stabilized laser system, based on the Venteon Pulse Ultrabroad.

    Laser Quantum believes the addition of Venteon’s unique short pulse technology, to its already wide range of continuous wave and ultrafast GHz laser technology, provides the photonics market with increased technological capability to advance knowledge in many areas of scientific research.

  • Laser Quantum: Venteon amplification

    Laser Quantum exclusively provides comprehensive solutions for the emerging market of OPCPA systems - the most direct approach for amplified high-power, few-cycle femtosecond laser pulses. Unlike for other commonly used amplification concepts such as Ti:sapphire-based multipass or regenerative amplifier systems, the parametric amplification process of Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifiers (OPCPA) features a much larger gain bandwidth and no gain narrowing and thus is ideally suited to support the bandwidth and pulse duration generated by the broadband VENTEON femtosecond systems.

    Laser Quantum is capable of all the necessary technology required to realize a complete OPCPA system and proved its expertise, knowledge and competence by developing the world’s first commercial OPCPA.

    As a solid basis of the OPCPA systems, we can provide a specialized seed laser system, the Venteon PULSE OPCPAseed, which features a dual laser output for both, ultra-broadband signal and additionally a narrowband pump seed @ 1030 nm. The interface of the narrowband seed can be adapted in terms of coupling (free-space or fiber-coupled), pulse energy (with or without pre-amplification) and filtering. 

    For amplifying the narrowband pump pulses @ 1030nm we have developed an independent preamplifer solution. TheVenteon PULSE Preamplifier modules are designed for  amplifying low energy pulses (10 pJ) of the seed oscillator to significant higher power levels. All modules can of course be used as independent amplification modules for other laser systems around 1µm.

    Using this unique front-end laser system, the Venteon PULSE OPCPA is the first complete commercial protoype OPCPA system that now allows for the generation of sub-8fs pulses with pulse energies of more than 5µJ at high repetition rates.

    With the Venteon PULSE SPIDER and the octave-spanning compression mirrors, Laser Quantum can also supply the pulse compressing and accurate measurement of few-cycle pulses generated by OPCPA systems.

  • Laser Quantum THz

    THz radiation is a fast growing area of research due to its non-ionising nature and transparency to many materials. Combined with time domain spectroscopy, it can provide information on the samples effect on amplitude and phase of the radiation, thereby provide more information than other spectroscopic techniques.

    The HASSP-THz is a fully configured pump-probe Asynchronous Optical Sampling instrument that instead of using mechanical translation stages to form the time delay between pump and probe pulses, uses two pulse trains with a slightly offset repetition rate. This greatly improves the resolution of any experiment.
