- All from one single source
- Designed to work together
- Easy to use
- Controlled from a single GUI
Complete stabilized laser systems including the DFC CORE +, any desired wavelength extension, beat units, stabilization electronics, wavelength meters, counters, and lasers are now available from one source.
Any of TOPTICA’s tunable diode lasers with a wavelength between 420 nm and 2200 nm can be locked to the DFC, lasers with shorter wavelengths can be stabilized using the fundamental of their SHG unit. The complete laser system is controlled from a single GUI.
