FEMTOPULSE™ Optical Pulse Compressors

Femtopulse Optical Pulse Compressor

PriTel’s FP Series of FEMTOPULSE™ Optical Pulse Compressors are designed for use with the UOC fiber laser in R&D applications in optical switching, supercontinuum generation, measurement of optical fiber dispersion and nonlinearities, and terahertz fiberoptics.

FEMTOPULSE™ Optical Pulse Compressors utilize specialty fibers to temporally compress transform-limited input pulses. Units are custom-designed to meet performance requests.

An integrated EDFA is used to boost the pulse peak power before input to the specialty fiber. The front panel connections allow the EDFA to be used as a stand-alone amplifier for other applications.
