SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 31, 2008 -- Coherent Inc. said its new Mantis is the first ultrafast laser system to incorporate a 5-W green pump laser based on monolithic OPSL (optically pumped semiconductor laser) technology rather than a traditional DPSS (diode-pumped solid-state) pump.

Mantis is a cost-effective oscillator for short pulse (broadband) ultrafast applications and has been optimized for a single operating point (in terms of wavelength and bandwidth) enabling simplified design, increased ease of use and a cost-performance benefit, Coherent said.

CoherentMantis.jpgMantis generates over 300 milliwatts of average power at a nominal center wavelength of 800 nm and has a bandwidth over 70 nm, which can be compressed to under 20 femtoseconds (fs) using the optional external CPC (compact pulse compressor). The OPSL technology used in Mantis has been widely used for several years in OEM applications such as bioinstrumentation, Coherent said.

A major application for the Mantis is seeding short-pulse amplifier/optoelectronic-pulse amplifier systems to generate tunable high energy, sub-35 fs pulses for a wide range of pulse-probe experiments in physics and chemistry, the company said. Typical examples include studies into molecular photodissociation dynamics and power-hungry techniques such as fluorescence upconversion.

In terahertz (THz) spectroscopy and imaging the Mantis oscillator will generate a wider spectrum of THz radiation because of the laser's very short pulse width, Coherent said.
