Pulse Compressors


Avesta APC Prism Pulse Compressor

Avesta’s APC pulse compressor is used to control the amount of dispersion of Ti:Sapphire femtosecond laser radiation (other wavelengths are available upon request). The ability to change the group velocity dispersion over this wide wavelength range allows pre-compression for dispersion introduced by additional optics, and the minimum pulse duration can be obtained at the irradiated sample.

Avesta Compulse Gas Capillary Pulse Compressor


Compulse compressors are employed for shortening femtosecond laser pulses. They are based on spectral broadening (chirping) of femtosecond laser pulses in a noble gas-filled capillary, with subsequent pulse compression by grating or prism compressor.

Up to 1:10 compression ratio 
Energy efficiency 50% 
Input pulse energy up to 1 mJ
800 and 1058 nm standard models
