1) - a sech2 pulse shape is used to determine the pulse duration. Measured with Avesta AA-20DD interferometric autocorrelator;
2) - after 30 min warm-up with cold start, during 12-hour continuous operation under equal room temperature conditions using recommended stabilized closed-loop chiller with proper capacity.
The TEMA-DUO is a further development of the TEMA Yb solid-state laser platform incorporating a built-in second harmonic generation module. Short pulse duration and high average power of the fundamental radiation allow reaching SHG conversion efficiency over 40%.
The TEMA-DUO is available in two basic models: the TEMA-DUO-100 and the TEMA-DUO-150. The main difference between the two is the difference in output pulse duration: <100 fs for the TEMA-DUO-100 and <150 fs for the TEMA-DUO-150.The TEMA-DUO system comprises the pump diode assembly with compact control and monitoring unit, the laser cavity and special optical routing layout that allows getting either full power of the fundamental beam, or two simultaneous outputs at 1050 and 525 nm. The fundamental and SH pulses have the same repetition rates and the pulse trains are completely in sync. Two synchronous outputs of the TEMA-DUO provide the capability for nonlinear optics research with high temporal resolution in a single budget-friendly system.
High output power of the SHG in the visible range opens up the possibility to use the TEMA-DUO as an effective pump source for parametric oscillators (such as the TOPOL systems), as well as for Ti:Sapphire pumping (the Tricolor multichannel system), replacing the pricey CW DPSS pump lasers while providing additional femtosecond channel of optical radiation in the visible range. It is also possible to use the fundamental beam to pump and additional CrF femtosecond Cr:F laser system. Thus possible laser combinations are rather flexible and may be requested on custom basis.
