The femtosecond system consists of ca. 35 fs 800 nm Coherent Ti:Sapphire seed lasers and high energy regenerative amplifiers. Regenerative amplifiers pump optical parametric amplifiers to generate fs pulses at a variety of wavelengths (from ~240 nm to ~12 microns) using nonlinear frequency conversion.
The detection systems include single-wavelength and array detectors. The experiment and data acquisition is computer-controlled by LabView – based software.
