SolsTiS cw Ti Sapphire Laser


SolsTiS® is an ultra-compact, automated, widely tunable, CW narrow linewidth Ti Sapphire laser system. Next-generation features lower cost while maximizing reliability, performance and productivity.

SolsTiS provides narrow linewidth, high output power, broad tuning, and the lowest noise in the industry. Compatible with a wide range of commercial Ti Sapphire pump lasers as well as fully integrated pump options.  Available in a range of linewidth options. 

SolsTiS wavelength control consists of nothing more than selecting a value - "dial a wavelength". Single linewidth scans and scan stitching are also possible.  The entire tuning range can be accessed without changing optics or re-alignment. The system can be integrated into automated experiment via external commands.

SolsTiS can be locked externally to a transition, reference cavity or wavemeter. The small, sealed cavity can be easily purged in minutes.  Fully integrated accessories such as beam pick-off and fiber coupling are available.  Frequency conversion, e.g. doubling or mixing, with ECD-X.
