The 101 PAL-PSTR pulse stretcher from Light Age Inc. provides control over a 0.1- to 5-µs range. It allows laser peak power to be fixed as pulse energy varies or to vary at nearly constant pulse energy. Pulse duration can vary continuously over a range from 100 ns to several microseconds. The device can be configured to offer fiber-coupled output in the red and near-UV with average powers of 0.5 and 1 W. Using the company's optical feedback system, it can continuously monitor the pulse output power and can control resonator loss on nanosecond timescales.
