Odin-II Ti:sapphire Amplifier system with Cryo-cooled Add-on Amplifier.

The Odin-II multi-pass amplifier with cryogenically cooled add-on amplifier from Quantronix is the first commercial-grade, fully engineered, modular Ti:sapphire amplifier system available on the market to offer greater than 12mJ per pulse at 30fs pulse duration and with pre and post pulse contrasts greater than 1000:1.

Distributed by Photonic Solutions PLC in the UK, this high-power, ultra-short pulse Ti:sapphire amplifier system is a modular system, with fully integrated pump lasers and amplifiers. The system consists of two stages: the front-end amplifier is an Odin-II, with 2.5mJ per pulse at 30fs pulse duration and 1kHz repetition rate; the second stage power amplifier is a cryo-cooled 12mJ add-on multi-pass amplifier boosting the pulse energy to greater than 12mJ at 1kHz. This cryo-cooled add-on amplifier is based on the same proven engineering advancements found in the Integra and Odin series of amplifier systems from Quantronix.

The multi-pass amplifier configuration utilised in this laser system minimises material dispersion and has the added advantage that the simplicity of design renders maintenance easy and straightforward and operation alignment-free. The configuration also results in a compact design with all essential components included (pulse cleaner, amplifier, pump lasers, compressor) in one compact unit of footprint less than 80cm x 140cm.

Quantronix are technology leaders in the supply of CW pumped Q-switched solid-state lasers and ultra-fast lasers for industrial, scientific and commercial applications. For information on either the Odin-II or the full range of solid-state laser available from Quantronix please contact Photonic Solutions PLC.
