Coherent has released two Legend Elite ultrafast amplifiers, which have specified pulse widths of less than 25 femtoseconds.
These two products are the Legend Elite USX-HE with pulse energies of more than 2.5mJ, and the Legend Elite Duo-USX which delivers pulse energies of more than 5 mJ.
This performance is enabled by two developments. The new E2-Engine is a regenerative amplifier module providing energy and efficiency from a highly stable platform. These new amplifiers also employ BandMax technology, a suite of features designed to ensure stable, short pulse operation. Optimal seeding is provided by Coherent’s Micra or Mantis oscillators producing stable, wide bandwidth, spectral characteristics.
The Legend Elite USX models offer improved peak power and temporal characteristics for demanding applications such as HHG (High Harmonic Generation), ultrafast spectroscopy, X-ray generation and attosecond physics.
