Product information "Mai Tai® Ultrafast Tunable Lasers"
Ti:Sapphire; One Box; 690-1040 nm; Repetition Rate 80 MHz; Pulse Width <70-<100 fs; Average Output Power >0.9->2.5 W; Noise <0.15%
MKS Spectra-Physics’ Mai Tai® Ti:Sapphire ultrafast tunable lasers are used for a variety of applications ranging from general spectroscopy to multiphoton microscopy. With leading performance specifications and the largest installed base of any laser of its type, the Mai Tai series lasers are truly cutting-edge tools for basic research and biological imaging.
The Mai Tai series includes three models of increasing power and tuning range to allow customers to choose the system to best match their application. Ideal for multiphoton microscopy, the Mai Tai HP provides more than 300 nm (690 to 1040 nm) in useable tuning range with over 2.5 W of average power and a pulse width of less than 100 fs.
For customers interested in systems with a shorter pulse width, the Mai Tai BB provides more than 240 nm in useable tuning range with a pulse width of less than 80 fs.
Finally, the Mai Tai XF-1 provides more than 200 nm in useable tuning range with an even shorter pulse width of less than 70 fs. For access to longer wavelengths beyond 1040 nm, Spectra-Physics offers InSight® X3™ with exceptionally wide tuning range (680 to 1300 nm) for deep in vivo imaging.
The Mai Tai series’ reliability is maintained using proven, ultra-stable regenerative mode-locking. Using this method, the Mai Tai oscillator is capable of hands-free, drop-out-free wavelength tuning enabling speedy collection of excitation profiles all at the click of a mouse. StabiLok® real-time monitoring technology also enhances system reliability by providing excellent beam pointing stability and minimal average power fluctuations, as well as eliminating wavelength drift. These two features combine to make the Mai Tai oscillator the most reliable and most versatile hands-free laser source available.
High Output Power Maximizes Penetration Depth in Multiphoton Imaging:
Short Output Pulse Width to Provide High Peak Power: <70 to <100 fs
Wide Tuning Range for Efficient Excitation of All Commonly Used Fluorophores: 690 to 1040 nm
