ShapeShifter™ is a state-of-the-art research tool that can be configured to perform experiments using many different types of nonlinear processes. It is designed, fabricated and tested using field-proven components from a single manufacturer, thereby minimizing your technology adoption risk.

ShapeShifter™ is capable of meeting your current needs while retaining the flexibility to add options1that include pulsewidth as short as 15fs2, a large range of pump and probe wavelengths (e.g. sub-200 nm to beyond 10 microns) with decay times ranging from sub-30 femtoseconds to nanoseconds, and at user-selectable repetition rates that are variable from single-shot to multiple kHz. It can be used to explore heat-affected-zone and embrittlement-free structuring in a wide variety of materials using pulse widths that are variable from 30fs to 10ps.

ShapeShifter™ begins with the field proven Model CPA-series patented, fiber-oscillator- seeded, Ti:Sapphire amplifier3. The output beam of the Model CPA can be split into as many as seven beams to pump as many as seven tunable, non-collinear OPAs (NOPAs). Or you can use one beam to generate multiple continua and/or you can microstructure materials to create features smaller than 1 micron. Clearly, ShapeShifter™ is the ideal tool for a user facility.

Why limit your future options when ShapeShifter™ offers you unmatched flexibility to go where your research takes you?

Only an introduction to ShapeShifter™ can be provided here due to space limitations. Please contact us to find out how ShapeShifter™ can be configured to meet your specific needs.
