New equipment: femtosecond laser.

Ural Center for Shared Use “Modern Nanotechnology” has new equipment: ultrashort pulse laser stand based on TETA-10 femtosecond laser manufactured by the Russian company Avesta-Project, Troitsk, Moscow,

"Avesta-Project" is a research and production company engaged in the production of innovative laser equipment for ultra-fast spectroscopy and microprocessing of materials. For more than 25 years, the company has been producing femtosecond laser equipment and supplying it to the Russian and international markets.

The femtosecond laser allows you to obtain infrared pulses at a wavelength of 1030 nm with an energy of up to 400 μJ, a duration of 270 fs at an average power of up to 10 W.

The laser stand also includes:

1. Equipment for laser radiation frequency adjustment, which allows to obtain femtosecond pulses with wavelengths of 343 nm and 515 nm, as well as with smooth adjustment from 630 to 2800 nm.

2. Pulse compressor to reduce duration to 30 fs.

3. A set of autocorrelator and spectrometers for measuring femtosecond pulse characteristics.

The ultra-short pulse laser stand will be used for a comprehensive study of new micro- and nano-structured functional materials and nanoparticles created using laser technologies.
