The new Spirit is a flexible, high repetition rate one box ultrafast laser. With direct diode pumping technology developed by High Q Laser and Spectra-Physics, Spirits innovative and simple architecture offers truly unique performance.The Spirit platform offers impressive versatility to serve the needs of scientific and industrial customers. The lasers high average power (>8 W) and high repetition rate enable fast data acquisition in complex time resolved spectroscopy experiments. Pulse energy and repetition rate adjustability (single shot 1 MHz) make the Spirit laser ideal for medical device manufacturing and femtosecond micromachining. The integrated pulse picker offers the possibility for fast pulse selection and power control by an analog input signal. This simplifies the integration of the laser and offers fast process throughput.The optional, high efficiency Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) module enables the fabrication of smaller and more accurate structures or a more efficient pumping of optical parametric amplifiers. The fundamental and SHG output beams are collinear at the laser exit for easy integration and beam delivery. The end user can easily switch between the 1040 nm and 520 nm outputs by software.Fully automated and computer controlled, Spirit is manufactured with high reliability and quality in mind. Spirits design is optimized for the best power and beam pointing stability for long-term operation, ensuring high precision and reproducibility in material processing.
