Del Mar Photonics - Ultrafast Lasers portfolio - Newsletter
We are interested in using a 1060nm laser for second harmonic imaging in the retina with the voltage sensitive dye FM4-64. We would like a quote (price and availability) for your Ytterbium-doped Femtosecond Solid-Sate Laser Tourmaline Yb-SS400.
I'll give a range of values and you can provide multiple quotes if needed. Pulse duration should be as short as possible, 100-300fs is a good range.
Average power should be at least 100mW, we certainly don't need more than 1W.
Pulse rep rate should be as high as possible, 70-100MHz is good.

Pismo pulse picker
The Pismo pulse picker systems is as a pulse gating system that lets single pulses or group of subsequent pulses from a femtosecond or picosecond pulse train pass through the system, and stops other radiation. The system is perfectly suitable for most commercial femtosecond oscillators and amplifiers. The system can pick either single pulses, shoot bursts (patterns of single pulses) or pick group of subsequent pulses (wider square-shaped HV pulse modification). HV pulse duration (i.e. gate open time) is 10 ns in the default Pismo 8/1 model, but can be customized from 3 to 1250 ns upon request or made variable. The frequency of the picked pulses starts with single shot to 1 kHz for the basic model, and goes up to 100 kHz for the most advanced one.
The Pockels cell is supplied with a control unit that is capable of synching to the optical pulse train via a built-in photodetector unit, while electric trigger signal is also accepted. Two additional delay channels are available for synching of other equipment to the pulse picker operation. Moreover, USB connectivity and LabView-compatible drivers save a great deal of your time on storing and recalling presets, and setting up some automated experimental setups. One control unit is capable of driving of up to 3 Pockels cells, and this comes handy in complex setups or contrast-improving schemes. The system can also be modified to supply two HV pulses to one Pockels cell unit, making it a 2-channel pulse picker system. This may be essential for injection/ejection purposes when building a regenerative or multipass amplifier system.

Pearl Ultra-Compact Ultrafast Picosecond Fiber Oscillator
Reef femtosecond autocorrelators
The autocorrelation technique is the most common method used to determine laser pulse width characteristics on a femtosecond time scale.
The basic optical configuration of the autocorrelator is similar to that of an interferometer (Figure.1). An incoming pulse train is split into two beams of equal intensity. An adjustable optical delay is inserted into one of the arms. The two beams are then recombined within a nonlinear material (semiconductor) for two photon absorption (TPA). The incident pulses directly generate a nonlinear TPA photocurrent in the semiconductor, and the detection of this photocurrent as a function of interferometer optical delay between the interacting pulses yields the pulse autocorrelation function. The TPA process is polarization-independent and non-phasematched, simplifying alignment.
Reef-RT autocorrelator measures laser pulse durations ranging from 20 femtoseconds to picosecond regime. It measures pulse widths from both low energy, high repetition rate oscillators and high energy, low repetition rate amplifiers. Compact control unit operates autocorrelator head and optional spectrometer through on-screen menus. Autocorrelation trace and spectrum can be displayed and analyzed on screen or downloaded to remote computer.

Trestles Fourth Harmonic Generator - request a quote
Trestles FHG is designed to work with Ti:sapphire lasers, such as the Trestles Ti:sapphire laser to provide fourth harmonic generation. Trestles FHG is an affordable and easy solution to generating pulses around 200 nm.
Trestles FHG is available in two versions. The first version uses the third harmonic mixed with the fundamental wavelength to produce fourth harmonic generation. This option provides the fundamental, as well as the second, third and fourth harmonics. For input of 810 nm, 1 W, 82MHz and 50 fs, output of the fourth harmonic is at 203 nm, 300-400 fs and power is 3 mW. The second option uses two separate second harmonic generation stages to produce fourth harmonic generation. With input of 810 nm, 1 W, 82 MHz and 50 fs, output of the fourth harmonic is at 210 nm, pulse width of 500 fs and power of 10 mW.
The Trestles FHG from Del Mar Photonics is an easily installed solution for adding functionality to any femtosecond laser system. Extended ranges will increase capabilities for research, and specific applications such as microscopy and spectroscopy.

Second harmonic imaging of membrane potential of neurons with retinal
In the central nervous system (CNS), information is relayed and processed by neurons that communicate by sending and receiving electrical signals. Each cell’s transmembrane potential thus encodes information. Therefore, a first-order problem in the study of the brain’s functioning is how to record this electrical activity from multiple neurons and their processes. An accurate measurement of the instantaneous voltage map could enable researches to decipher the architecture of the CNS and the basic rules of integration and computation it performs.
