Based on a Prism Pair Set-up

Our prism compressor kit is based on prism pair setup. This kit allows the user to assemble the pre-selected and certified off the shelf components and put them together for a cost effective dispersion compensation solution. The Application Note that describes the kit had detailed information on how to assemble the kit and choose critical distances most suitable for your application.

Components Compatible with Spectra-Physics Ultrafast Lasers

All of the mounts and optics in this kit have been certified by our scientists in the Newport Technology and Applications Center to be compatible with the Spectra-Physics Mai Tai™, Tsunami™, Spitfire ultrafast Ti:Sapphire lasers, OPAL OPO and OPA. Due to the polarization selectivity of the Brewster’s angle cut prisms, this kit is designed for the horizontal polarization. For vertically polarized laser beam such as output from Tsunami, a periscope or half wave-plate will be needed to rotate the polarization by 90°.


Applications for our prism compressor include:

  • Multiphoton Microscopy
  • Supercontinuum Generation
  • Terahertz Generation
  • Ultrafast Spectroscopy
