FROG - Single Shot

The Single-Shot FROG(Fast FROG) series

FROG stands for Frequency Resolved Optical Gating. Based on Second Harmonic Generation, Fast FROG is reliable 

and compact. Key design features, such as the wavefront division technique and the use of our mini imaging 

spectrometer MISS, make the Fast FROG very easy to use and versatile while leading to accurate measurements. 

Six models are available, covering different pulse duration ranges from sub-5 fs to 10 ps, over a broad spectral

range. Two designs are available: one for long pulses mainly relying on transmission optics, and one for ultrashort

pulses which is fully achromatic

Key features 

◆ Easy to use: no calibration and no tweaking necessary  

◆ User-friendly and powerful software   

◆ Can access Spatio-Temporal couplings (Spatial Chirp, Pulse Front Tilt)  

◆ Versatile: instant-swap of spectrometer for different wavelength ranges  

◆ Single-pulse extraction possible up to 150 kHz laser repetition rate (with Enhanced  detection option)  

◆ Achromatic and non-dispersive (FC and FS models) 

◆ Sub-5 fs can be measured

1 Effective spectral bandwidth to be defined within the accessible spectral range according to customer’s requirements. Additional spectrometers can be provided to address different spectral windows.

2The measurements are averaged over several pulses for laser with repetition rate higher than 150kHz.

3Those values give an order of magnitude, with “low energy” option when applicable.The exact sensitivity depends on many parameters (pulse duration, beam profile, wavelength…)


Software Interface

The Fast FROG software comes with an optimized retrieval algorithm, that allows for retrieval of time and spectral information in real time.

Accessories and Add-Ons

The following Accesories and Add-Ons are available on request.

Options

Description

Additional crystals

The   default Fast FROG configuration includes one crystal. To extend the   wavelength range of the device, additional plug&play crystals can be   ordered and swapped within the system in seconds

Additional MISS spectrometer

The   default Fast FROG configuration includes one imaging spectrometer MISS. To   extend the wavelength range of the device, additional plug&play MISS   spectrometers can be ordered and swapped within the system in seconds

Enhanced detection

Replacement   of the default camera embedded in the Fast FROG by a higher performance one   to increase the specifications of the system (better temporal resolution and   spectral resolution, single pulse extraction up to 150 kHz)

Fiber input connector

Plug&play   collimation module with fiber connector. Can be mounted on the Fast FROG to   easily switch the input from free-space to fiber. No alignment required.

High dynamic range

Software   mode to increase the dynamic of the Fast FROG signal acquisition from 12 to   16 bits. Not compatible with pure single-shot measurement as 2 images are   necessary to build one FROG trace

Low energy

Internal   module to increase the sensitivity of the Fast FROG when the laser power is   too weak

Phase loop

Software   mode to use the Fast FROG to perform spectral phase feedback loop with a   pulse shaper (contact use to check pulse shaper compatibility)

Phase matching

Default   Fast FROG configuration works for a given central wavelength. Phase matching   allows tuning the SHG crystal to measure different central wavelengths with   the best SNR

Pulse Front Tilt / Spatial Chirp measurement

Measurement   of spatio-temporal couplings in the software. Correction of FROG trace   accordingly for better accuracy of the retrieval

Small beam

Internal   module to increase the input beam diameter when it is too small for the Fast   FROG (necessary for beams typically in the range of few mm or less)

Trigger

Synchronization   of the Fast FROG detection to an external signal for accurate laser single   pulse extraction up to 80 kHz (150 kHz with the Enhanced detection option)
