These applications include molecular dynamics research, the optimization of non-linear processes such as multiphoton excitation (MPE), and laser optimization.
Silhouette uses a patent-pending optical platform to provide closed-loop measurement and optimization of both the spectral phase and amplitude of ultrafast pulses. Based on a spatial light modulator, the Silhouette acquires data through a low profile, fiber-coupled sensor.
This method of data acquisition allows pulse characteristics to be monitored and controlled at every location within an ultrafast setup. That positioning includes even after the beam delivery optics and at the output of an oscillator.
Operation is so easy that even a novice ultrafast user can correct phase distortions and achieve short, transform-limited pulses. Sophisticated users can create novel phase and amplitude profiles. Silhouette is designed for use with either home-built or commercial ultrafast laser systems.
