The TiF-15 laser system offers the shortest available pulse duration in the TiF family of Ti:S femtosecond laser oscillators. It is a robust tool for cutting-edge ultrafast research.

The system can be supplied in two basic versions: the TiF-15, being a stand-alone version for pumping with an external pump laser; or the TiF-15F system which may be integrated with an industry-standard pump laser on site or at our factory. However, the dimensions of the Ti:S laser head are the same for either version, the stand-alone version may later be fitted with an integrated pump laser at minimum additional cost. The acceptable pump laser power for the TiF-15/TiF-15F is up to 6 W.

The system is designed to operate 24/7 as a seed oscillator for our larger amplifier systems and thus inherits all the stability-enhancing design features. The system may be supplied pre-tuned to one of the two available configurations, with all the components inside the box being the same. An external prism pair kit or a tunable pulse compressor (the APC unit) for output pulse chirp compensation and pre-compensation are also available.
