taccor comb

The taccor comb consists of a powerful 1 GHz turn-key Ti:sapphire laser with a matched dispersion compensation module, super-continuum generation and ultra-stable f-to-2f interferometer. It provides an electrical output signal at the carrier-envelope offset (CEO) frequency with at least 40 dB signal-to-noise ratio in 100 kHz bandwidth. The super-continuum generation fibre coupling is stable for long periods and any long-term variations can be compensated with piezo actuators, controlled via a touch-screen interface. The comb extension can be used in conjunction with the taccor power or taccor ultra.

Product Description


The comb extension can be used in combination with the taccor power or taccor ultra lasers with the taccor power offering up to 1 W of useable 800 nm available after the CEO frequency measurement. When combined with the taccor ultra 8 or 10, the system delivers up to 800 mW of output power with 15 fs pulse duration.
