High Dynamic Range Autocorrelator for High Contrast Pulse Characterization


pulseCheck SM Type 2 High Contrast Reveals Temporal Information of Pre-/Post-pulses and Pedestals


Revealing Pre-pulses, Post-pulses, Pedestals, Satellites

High contrast measurements with the Autocorrelator pulseCheck SM Type 2 autocorrelator provide information about how far in time and intensity the main pulse is accompanied by pre-pulses, postpulses and pedestals.

With a high dynamic range of 107, the pulseCheck SM Type 2 is ideally suited for the characterization of high-intensity, high-repetition rate laser pulses, such as the used in material processing or in ultra-high intensity light-matter interaction experiments.

At a Glance

  • Measuring intense pulses and their pre-pulses, post-pulses, pedestals
  • High dynamic range measurements of ultra-short laser pulses
  • Temporal resolution for normal operation 1 fs and 25 fs for high contrast operation
  • Ethernet, TCP/IP and USB connectivity for easy automation
  • NIST traceable temporal calibration

High Contrast Measurement vs. Standard Autocorrelation Measurement

Figure: SM Type 2 high contrast autocorrelation measurement of an industrial femtosecond fiber laser with a nominal pulse duration of ~ 280 fs (please note the ps scale of the measurement). Measurement conditions: ~ 1030 nm, 35 mW, 1 MHz.

Included

Acquisition Software and TCP/IP Standard Software Interface

All models come with an easy to use data acquisition software, allowing for real-time data display. Furthermore, the TCP/IP-based standard software interface by APE makes it straight forward to set up remote control. This allows you, for example, to design your own automated measurement routines. Simply use our protocol templates for rapid configuration with familiar programming languages, including C++, C#, LabVIEW, Python, Matlab, and Ruby.

NIST Traceable Calibration

Laboratories and manufacturers are often faced with systematically establishing an unbroken chain of calibrations to specified references. All APE autocorrelator models are calibrated to a traceable standard in accordance with NIST (U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology) measurement traceability specifications. A printed and signed calibration certificate is provided with each pulseCheck.
