The Ultrafast Watt Pilot is intended for laser pulses of <100 fs. It incorporates a motor-driven rotating Achromatic λ/2 phase waveplate and two high-performance Broadband 72° Thin Film Polarizers that separate s-polarized and p-polarized beams in parallel directions. The intensity ratio of the separated beams is continuously tuned by rotating the waveplate.
There are 2 standardized types of ultrafast attenuators – one for maximum transmitted energy and one for maximum blocked beam.
The Watt Pilot is essential in systems in which stable adjustments to laser power are necessary. Despite the stand-alone device look, the motorized attenuator is compact and can be easily integrated into custom optical systems.
Custom wavelengths are available upon request.
