Prisms

Dispersing Prisms meet ultrashort pulse laser systems' needs.

Depending on alignment, Ultrafast Dispersing Prisms may introduce negative or positive dispersion. Negative dispersion compensation allows effects of other dispersive optical elements to be cancelled. In high-power, ultrafast applications, introducing positive dispersion elongates pulse in time to mitigate risk of damage to optical components. RoHS-compliant, 25.4 x 25.4 mm products, polished to...
