Ultrafast mirrors for femtosecond pulse duration laser systems

This article is brought to you by: 

Advances in laser technology have paved the way for the development of powerful, ultrafast lasers with pulse lengths as short as 10fs or less. Building such systems has come with many challenges for the precision optics community. Ultrafast systems therefore require low group delay dispersion (GDD) components to access and maintain femtosecond pulse durations.
