Femtosecond system


nanosecond laser

A nanosecond modular laser system (Vibrant from Opotek/Quantel) is currently in the commissioning phase. It consists of a Q-Switched Nd:YAG oscillator. Its output can be  frequency doubled and tripled and the wavelength can be continuously tuned with three different OPO modules.
It runs at a frequency of 9 Hz triggered by the synchrotron bunch clock.
