SCARLET Laser Compressed from 800 ps to 50 fs
Take a look as we prepare for temporal pulse compression:
Prepping the optic mounts
Rosa and Yani with the mounts they designed for the SCARLET laser compressor chamber
Electronics for moving the optic mounts under vacuum
Cleaning the optics and positioning the mounts
The laser team is responsible for aligning the compressor to less than 100 fs for the First Light event.
We achieved ~ 50 fs.
