Transmission gratings support ultrafast lasers
Kaiser Optical Systems has developed a new line of pulse compression gratings for ultrafast laser applications
These volume phase holographic (VPH) transmission gratings support the ultrafast laser community. VPH gratings have very high diffraction efficiency and are ideal for use as the critical dispersion elements that allow laser pulses to be compressed into the femtosecond regime. A VPH transmission grating exhibits very low loss and low scatter.
Each VPH grating is encapsulated between two glass substrates with antireflection coatings applied to the external surfaces.
This results in a robust physical package that will withstand typical handling and can be cleaned with the same techniques used on high quality lenses.
