Ekspla PT200 Series Single Housing NIR-IR Range Tunable Picosecond Laser

PT200 series picosecond tunable lasers

Ekspla's PT200 series laser systems integrate a picosecond optical parametric oscillator and DPSS pump laser into a single compact housing. Mounting the components into one frame provides a cost-effective and robust solution with improved long-term stability and reduced maintenance costs.

The MHz pulse repetition rate enables the photon-counting detection method in numerous non‑linear spectroscopy and microscopy applications.

PT257 and PT259 are targeted for CARS and two photon fluorescence applications. The tuning range of PT257 and PT259 supports Raman shift measurements in the 1000 – 4000 cm⁻¹ range. An optional second harmonic generator extends the PT259 tuning range to UV, enabling time‑resolved laser-induced fluorescence measurements. The PT277 model produces approximately 0.5 W power in mid‑IR range from 2500 to 3400 nm with nearly Fourier transform limited linewidth. Applications include infrared spectroscopy and vibrational spectroscopy on surfaces.

All models produce nearly diffraction limited divergence beams, with M² measured as <1.3 over the tuning range.

The microprocessor-controlled wavelength tuning is fully automatic. The wavelength controlling elements are mounted on precise micro‑stepping motors. The temperature of the non‑linear crystal is controlled by a precise thermocontroller with a bidirectional Peltier element, resulting in the fast tuning of crystal temperature. The lasers may be controlled from a remote keypad or via USB (RS232 is optional) interface from a personal computer using LabView™ drivers. Read more

Ekspla NL740 Series Ultrastable Nanosecond Laser

NL740 tunable pulse duration NdYAG lasers

The main feature of the Ekspla  NL740 series is the output of ultra-stable tunable duration (2 – 10 ns) narrow bandwidth nanosecond pulses based on temporally driven CW diode laser seeder and amplification stages.

Start of the system is the single mode DFB laser with temporal output power modulator. Then light is amplified in diode pumped regenerative amplifier in order to reach energy sufficient to amplify in double pass diode pumped amplifiers. Power amplifier is a chain of double pass amplifiers where pulse is amplified up to required energy. Before amplification spatial beam shaping is employed in order to get flat top shape at the output. The harmonic generators are based on angle tuned nonlinear crystals placed in a heater. Read more.
