Features

Negative GDD for Dispersion Compensation

When transmitting an ultrashort pulse laser beam through a number of optical components, the pulse will spread and become chirped. This matched pair of mirrors are the solution to compensate for pulse broadening effects. These mirrors provide a negative group delay dispersion (-45 fs2 at 800 nm per bounce) to the incoming laser beam with every bounce off the surface. By setting up a two or three mirror configuration, the laser beam can bounce back and forth between the mirrors many times to compensate for pulse dispersion effects. These mirrors can be mounted into Newport's patented clear quadrant mounts - such as SN100C-F2K or U100-A2K - to create the closest separation between two mirrors to allow for a large number of bounces between elements.

Cancel Out GDD Oscillations

The coating design of dispersion compensation mirrors has inherent oscillatory fluctuations through the active wavelength band. This phenomenon is a natural result of the coating design. However these oscillations can be cancelled out when using two mirrors that are made such that their oscillations happen at a 180 degrees out of phase.

Fused Silica Substrates

Fused Silica is a synthetic amorphous silicon dioxide of extremely high purity. This non-crystalline, colorless silica glass combines a very low thermal expansion coefficient with good optical qualities and high damage threshold. As a substrate for our ultrafast mirrors, they provide excellent λ/10 surface flatness and 10-5 scratch-dig surface quality. For more information, refer to the optical material technical note.
