IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 17, 2016 — Newport Corp. has announced its DL series of delay line kits, providing scientists and researchers with the necessary components to build a complete optical delay line. The DL100 and DL200 kits are designed for experiments requiring delays up to 1333 ps. Both kits come fully equipped with a broadband retroreflector from 450 to 10,000 nm to ensure a parallel reflected beam with no need for adjustments. They are based on the compact FCL stepper motor linear stages with 100- or 200-mm travel ranges. The DL300 and DL600 kits are designed for advanced experiments requiring up to 8000-ps delays and fast delay variations. A dedicated XPS motion controller and complete cable chain management are included. The kits contain all the components required to use the delay line in a dual pass configuration and double the effective delay with a second optical path on the same stage. They are based on the IMS-LM series of linear motor stages. The DL series is equipped with Suprema steel mirror mounts for long-term stability. They also come with a number of iris apertures to facilitate the precise alignment of the laser beam to the delay line. An additional Suprema mount reflects the beam back to the experiment.
