This laser delivers pulses with a duration of 60 fs, at a repetition rate of 11 MHz, and a central wavelength of 800 nm with a 35nm bandwidth. The above 150 nJ pulse energy allows for machining of various material types. The laser is coupled to an optical microscope, that allows the observation of the sample during laser processing. Pulse shaping with a spatial light modulator is also accessible.

Methods & Expertise for Research Infrastructure
The interaction between various material types and the laser can be investigated by pulsed laser matter processing. The short pulses allow investigating processes below the electron-phonon coupling time. The laser machining also allows generation of nanoparticles with precise size and distribution. Pump-probe spectroscopy with shaped pulses and impulsive stimulated Raman scattering are also possible. Addition of multiple optical setups can be arranged.
A custom system allows precise, non-destructive, and in situ focus determination.
A laser safety course is mandatory before employing the device.
