Introduction

The KMLabs Griffin™ series of Ti:sapphire oscillators gives customers ultimate control over their system, are simple to maintain, and offer a wide range of performance specifications enabling many different applications.  These prism-based oscillators use Kerr lens modelocking to generate ultrashort < 12 fs pulses.  All Griffin™ lasers include computerized control of the spectral bandwidth and center wavelength and water-cooled breadboards for maximum long term stability. There are options within the Griffin™ series that include integrated pump lasers and diagnostics. Griffin™ lasers are very simple to maintain, since components are easily accessible.
