Product information "Spitfire®Ace™ High-energy Femtosecond Lasers"
Ti:Sapphire; 780-820 nm; Pulse Energy >0.5->14.0 mJ; Repetition Rate 1-10 kHz; Pulse Width <0.35-<2 ps; Average Output Power >5.0->16.0 W
The Spitfire® Ace™ series of high-energy femtosecond lasers is MKS Spectra-Physics’ flagship Ti:Sapphire regenerative amplifier system. Equipped with MKS Spectra-Physics’ proprietary Ace cavity design, the Spitfire Ace series provides guaranteed long-term performance, low noise and reliable day-to-day operation resulting in consistent OPA performance and nonlinear wavelength conversion for use in the most demanding ultrafast applications.
The Spitfire Ace amplifiers build upon MKS Spectra-Physics’ highly successful Spitfire platform. Every component has been carefully evaluated and selected to maximize stability. The Spitfire Ace regenerative amplifier produces an industry leading average power of more than 7 W at 1 kHz and 10 kHz, and 8 W at 5 kHz with excellent beam quality.
The Spitfire Ace series provides the most stable output available from a Ti:Sapphire regenerative amplifier, making the Spitfire Ace ideal for pumping multiple OPA systems and driving a wide range of nonlinear spectroscopies. The Spitfire Ace series can also drive the Kaliedescope™ which delivers pulses as short as <7 fs.
