Ultrafast Components

Ultrafast components are primarily used for ultra-short pulse laser applications, and can be found in pump lasers, Ti:sapphire oscillators, amplifiers, and associated experiments.. Our PulseLine products represent the best optics for ultrafast laser use from each of our product families, augmented by select optics that have been designed specifically for pulse lengths ranging from 10 to 130 fs drawing via proprietary techniques to achieve low and/or well-characterized group delay dispersion, as well as low third order dispersion. This covers components as follows: laser line mirrors, broadband dielectric and metallic mirrors, plate polarizers, plate and cube beamsplitters, dispersion-compensating prisms, and antireflection coated windows. At CVI Laser Optics, we understand the delicate balance that must be maintained between beam manipulation and pulse length. We will work with you to create custom optics that minimize temporal and spatial distortion of your beam, while maintaining high efficiency and withstanding high peak power.
  • PulseLine Mirrors

    Broadband, high reflectivity, high laser damage threshold mirrors designed with low and controlled group delay dispersion characteristics specifically for ultrashort laser applications.

  • PulseLine Polarizers

    Polarizers divide a beam of light into two highly polarized beams, making them ideal for isolation or routing of a specific polarization. Extinction ratio and power handling are important factors to consider when choosing a polarizer, particularly for laser applications. With plate and cube formats to choose from, as well as options for 45° AOI or Brewster angle operation, we have the right polarizer for your needs.
