Novel diode-pumped infrared tunable laser system for multi-photon microscopy

Microsc Res Tech. 2004 Jan 1;63(1):23-6. doi: 10.1002/jemt.10419.


We report on a novel laser source, emitting high energy (20 nanoJoule) femtosecond pulses, in a broad spectrum (250 nm). This source is easily tuned from 950 to 1200 nm, without any laser adjustment, and delivers sub-300 femtosecond pulses with a 10-nm spectral width.
