Compression Prisms

Compression Prisms are used for dispersion compensation in ultrafast laser systems. They can be used inside laser cavities to compensate for intra-cavity optics, such as gain crystals, or outside laser cavities (extra-cavity) to manipulate pulse characteristics. Their external, extra-cavity uses include recompressing pulses to their original length after passing through other optical components in a system.

Edmund Optics offers Compression Prisms made from various substrates, including LaKL21, SF10, and fused silica, each providing a different group velocity dispersion specification to meet your application’s dispersion requirements.
