The MiraTM 900 modelocked T:Sapphire laser system brings simplicity and flexibility together in an innovative design to produce a powerful and versatile system that has proven itself as the preferred ultrafast laser in use throughout the world.
Modelocking is accomplished based on the widely used and reliable KLM (Kerr Lens Modelocking) technqiue. This extremely simple, all-solid-state approach is analogous to modelocking by a fast saturable absorber.
The combination of Coherent's successful VerdiTM DPSS 532nm laser as the pump source (5W, 8W, 10W or 18W pump power) and the Mira oscillator with the Optima system results in a laser that stands alone as the market leader in terms of ease-of-use, performance and reliability.
Operation is greatly simplified by the use of Coherent Inc's X-Wave optics. No optics changes are required as this single optics set provides high-performance wavelength coverage from 700nm-1000nm. This feature is standard on all models.
Ease of use and reliability are enhanced by the Optima system used on the Mira Optima 900 lasers. This is a series of on-board detectors whose signals are diagnosed by the laser control unit, facilitating daily operation, performance optimisation and alignment procedures.
Models are available in femtosecond, picosecond and dual (femto/pico) configurations. All Mira 900 models have significant configuration commonality, along with the same fundamental platform and pump lasers, ensuring the simplest upgrades and conversions.
