UFL1 Specifications

Ultrafast laser system with SHG

Pharos /Orpheus Laser System
Pharos/Orpheus Laser System

 The Pharos is an extremely flexible and compact ultrafast laser offering tunabiliy in both pulse length and repetition rate. The laser can be used in a many applications ranging from micromachining to biomedical applications. When combined with the Orpheus optical parametric amplifier and second harmonic generation the system is a ideal spectroscopic tool.
