Product Introduction

Our field-proven CPA-Series Ti:Sapphire lasers redefine user-friendliness in a low cost-of-ownership source of ultrashort pulses of light. It is a complete, fully-integrated, ultrashort pulse oscillator/amplifier system controlled by an embedded touch-screen computer or from any Windows-based computer with a network connection. The included software provides control of laser performance parameters such as power output, pulsewidth, pump power, timing, and selection of single pulse or groups of multiple pulses. A suite of diagnostics is also included to monitor laser performance. The simple, intuitive, user-friendly interface provides both status information and control from external devices such as the included Apple iPod Touch preloaded with our iLase CPA software app. Resident .Net DLL files allow interfacing with your existing application-specific, custom software (LabView, MatLab, VisualBasic, etc.)

The Model CPA-Series provides the best of both worlds by combining the long life of telecom-qualified single-emitter pump diode with the low cost of operation of a single cw lamp. The result is a laser with the lowest cost of ownership on the market today. It is fully compatible with our NOPA series of optical parametric amplifiers providing tunable sub-50 fs pulses, TOPAS series of OPAs, STORC Harmonic Generators, and ShapeShifter™ ultrashort pulse nonlinear spectrometers (transient absorption, pump/probe, CARS, surface-specific SFG, SHG, THG, etc.)
