this stand-alone and complete measuring station is to be operated with an already existing excitation laser system consisting of an ultrashort pulse laser with regenerative amplifier (coherent legend elite, 6 j @ 4 m).
SPM-SSFS sources therefore provide a flexible platform for ultrashort pulse generation, which results in a tunable output energy and SC width, without active optical elements such as optical modulators.
The solution is selecting a laser with an ultrashort pulse length to minimize burrs, a short wavelength to cleanly ablate the polymer and optimized process parameters and environment.
Measurements using very tiny crystals have now become feasible thanks to the extreme intensity of FELs whose ultrashort pulse durations outrun most radiation damage effects.
Among the topics are emerging pulsed laser deposition techniques, fabricating periodic photonic microstructures by the interference of ultrashort pulse laser beams, the laser-induced soft matter organization and microstructuring of photonic materials, laser-assisted polymer joining methods for photonic devices, and femtosecond-laser-induced refractive index modifications for photonic device processing.

Illustrating the discussion utilizing MATLAB models, the authors describe the fundamental principles of the generation of ultrashort pulses employing fiber ring lasers that incorporate active optical modulators of amplitude or phase types; present experimental techniques for the generation, detection, and characterization of ultrashort pulse sequences; describe the multiplication of ultrashort pulse sequences using the Talbot diffraction effects in the time domain via the use of highly dispersive media; discuss the theoretical and experimental development of multiple short pulses in the form of solitons binding together by phase states; and describe the generation of short pulse sequences and multiple wavelength channels from a single fiber laser.
