Narrow Linewidth Ti:Sapphire Laser

With only a 0.1cm-1 linewidth, power outputs up to 1.5W and wavelength tunability in the fundamental from 700nm to 960nm along with its harmonics for wavelengths as short as 193nm, we have built a large number of these lasers for applications ranging from radioactive ion beam (RIB) to resonance Raman spectroscopy at major Universities all over the world

Radioactive ion beam (RIB)
The Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source (RILIS) is a powerful tool for efficient and selective production of radioactive ion beams at Isotope Separator On Line (ISOL) facilities. To avoid isobaric background, highly selective stepwise resonant ionization is applied, using up to three different laser wavelengths. Due to their advantages in terms of stability and reliability, an all solid-state titanium:sapphire (Ti:Sa) system is used at the majority of on-line facilities worldwide.

Biomed applications
Tu Series TEM00 tunable Ti:Sapphire laser’s pulse width is perfectly matched to the lifetime of many fluorophores (i.e., ~10ns). With its Broad Tuning Range of ~700 to 900nm over the “Blood window”, High prf up to 10KHz and high average power of >1W, this makes the Tu laser a valuable tool for cell visualization and other novel biomed imaging applications, such as photoacoustics (PA).
