Increase the energy of selected pulses in an optical amplifier with a low energy pulse source with high repetition rate
To seed an amplifier means to provide a source of low energy, typically high repetition rate, pulses which are injected into an optical amplifier to increase the energy of selected pulses by several orders of magnitude. The repetition rate of the amplified pulses is reduced in favor of the high energy per pulse. In large amplifier chains, the seed oscillator may only be a small, but very important system component right at the starting point of the optical chain, as it is the initial source of photons, playing crucial part in the overall performance of the amplifier system.
High specification lasers are required for this application and Novanta is able to cater to these needs:
