Output and input couplers (OC, IC)

Our customer is using the multi Terawatt few-cycle light wave synthesizer (LWS) based on optical parametric amplification driven by a flashlamp-pumped 80-ps Nd:YAG laser. LWS-20 produces 5-fs, 100-mJ, 20-TW pulses. This innovative laser includes special TOD dispersive mirrors. These elements allow one to precisely control GDD and third-order dispersion in the system. Our mirrors are specifically designed for obtaining the shortest pulse duration with the highest pulse quality.

Please browse UFI’s design database for the following examples:

OC47 + PC47, IR13
