Clark-MXR, Inc. is pleased to announce the first demonstration of a Yb-doped femtosecond fiber oscillator running at 25 MHz successfully synchronized with a Streak camera. This is a result from a collaboration with the companies Optronis GmbH (Dr. Patrick Summ, and Horiba Scientific GmbH (Dr. Hans-Erik Swoboda from Europe. The Magellan is a telecom-qualified single emitter diode-pumped Yb-doped femtosecond fiber oscillator. A Streak camera from Optronis, Optoscope SC10, with Synchroscan sweep unit was triggered by the Magellan oscillator and different triggering set-ups were tested for best synchronization conditions and temporal resolutions.
This will open up a whole new research area that was unavailable until now to synchronize Yb-doped fiber oscillators with streak cameras at lower repetition rates. Experiments such as direct fluorescence lifetime measurements with high temporal resolution can now be implemented.
