Compact Picosecond Laser
The CHEETAH-X high-average power, passively mode-locked, diode-pumped, solid-state laser system employs SESAM® technology. The combination of longitudinal diode-pumping, a saturable absorber mirror, and a robust sealed package yields turnkey, self-starting performance with exceptionally stable output characteristics.
The CHEETAH-X laser system can be customized to user-defined repetition rates ranging from 50 to 400 MHz. Additional customized features include increased pulse width through an etalon, frequency conversion with nonlinear crystals, or timing sychronization with the CLX-1100 phase-locked-loop feedback system. Its sealed housing design is optimized for use in laboratories and demanding industrial environments. The laser achieves its specified performance level in a span of seconds to minutes and requires very little maintenance.
