Matisse 2 DX

Pound-Drever-Hall Stabilized Dye Ring Laser

The Matisse DX is the ultra-narrow linewidth model of the Matisse laser series. Based on the Matisse DS, further linewidth narrowing down to 100 kHz is achieved by introduction of an electro-optical modulator into the cavity of the dye ring laser. The unique long travel piezo mechanics allows single frequency scanning over 60 GHz without mode hopping. The Matisse DX can be converted into the Matisse TX ring Titanium:Sapphire laser.
