Advanced Products

The Mendocino is available with 1 GHz or 10 GHz electrical synchronization for low-jitter triggering: for testing high-speed photodetectors, and applications with high-speed electrical sampling scopes.

The Mendocine is also available On-board computer: for power on-off control, wavelength tuning, operational data log and performance monitoring.

Pulse Compressor

The pulse compressor (PCS) consists of a fiber amplifier unit and a pulse compressor unit. It has excellent stability and reliability with turnkey operation. Along with a portable design, our advanced simulation software enables us to design the PCS according to the end user’s ultrafast laser specification. The pulse width can be compressed from 3 ps to 300 fs with a minimal pedestal. The compressed pulse is near transform-limited of near soliton-like shape. An average output greater than 100 mW is achieved with the built-in amplifier. The PCS can also be used as a standalone Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifier (EDFA) when pulse compression is not required.

"Calmar's products have continued to perform well, even after several years, and are much lower maintenance than our other mode-locked lasers"
