One of the most common applications of our crystals is for the generation of femtosecond pulses at around 780nm which can also be used as a low cost and compact alternative to the Ti:Sapphire laser. This is typically achieved by frequency doubling a high power 1560nm fibre source using a 1mm long MgO:PPLN crystal (MSHG1550-0.5-1) at room temperature (no PPLN crystal oven needed). Such a source can be used in microscopy systems for live-cell imaging, or terahertz time-domain spectroscopy where chemical fingerprints can be identified for homeland security applications.

The manipulation of Rb atoms is commonly performed using diode-based laser systems typically producing several hundred mW of usable 780nm power. Many atom optics applications however favour higher laser power whilst maintaining a narrow linewidth and high spatial beam quality. One method is to frequency-double 1560nm fiber lasers that can deliver tens of Watts in optical power.
