Optical Table A full sized optical table is recommended but the system can be supplied witha 112 mm thick metric breadboard (~100kg) and rigid support frame if required.
Diagnostics An autocorrelator and energy meter will be supplied.
Note on Laboratory Environmental conditions.

Prior to making an application for the system it is strongly recommended you contact LSF Staff.
For optimum operation of Amplifier, OPA, and mixing accesories, a draft free and +/- 1°C temperature controlled lab is the factory recommendation. It is anticipated that the complete system will perform over a range of +/- 3°C with perhaps some small drift in optimum performance. If your laboratory conditions fall outside of this range then please contact the LSF.

Notes

Laser goggles are not supplied with the system.

Host institution safety officers will be required to carry out a risk/hazard assessment of the equipment and its associated hazards before the equipment is installed.
