The new Vitara-S from Coherent is a hands-free, integrated, ultrafast oscillator primarily designed to seed Titanium:Sapphire (Ti:S) amplifiers. The new member of the Vitara family uses the same technology as other Vitara products and delivers the same beam quality and power stability, operating with a fixed bandwidth of >70nm centred at 800nm.

The compact laser head incorporates one of Coherent’s Optically Pumped Semiconductor Lasers (OPSL) as a pump laser. Unlike other Vitara models that provide bandwidth and wavelength adjustability, the fixed operating point of Vitara-S provides a hands-free solution for amplifier seeding applications and for other ultrafast broadband applications requiring a fixed wavelength and power.
