The Vitara from Coherent Inc. is a widely tunable ultrafast laser that delivers pulse widths shorter than 12 fs. It offers hands-free and fully automated operation, including automated wavelength tuning over the 755- to 860-nm range and push-button bandwidth adjustment from 30 to 125 nm. The output power peaks at >450 mW because of the fully integrated and compact Verdi G 5-W pump laser, which is based on proprietary optically pumped semiconductor laser technology. The 125-nm maximum bandwidth delivers a specified pulse width of <20 fs, with a typical pulse width of 15 fs directly from the laser output. Applications include terahertz spectroscopy and imaging, multiphoton microscopy and multiplex coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering imaging.
