MKS Instruments now sells Newport DLS Series high-performance linear actuators called Delay Line Stages. The DLS series features affordable high performance linear-motor-driven stages with integrated motion controllers.
Optimized for retroreflectors, repeatable femtosecond positioning and exceptionally fast traverse speeds, the compact stages are a perfect fit for spectroscopy applications that require single or multiple delay lines. With travel ranges of 125 mm, 225 mm and 325 mm, the DLS series can cover almost all delay line requirements from femtosecond to nanosecond delays. Typical spectroscopy applications range from pump-probe experiments to interferometry or multi-dimensional spectroscopy.
To facilitate the setup of a delay line, MKS offers a range of complementary beam kits to suit various wavelengths and delay line configurations.
The beam kits consist of retroreflectors, mirrors, mounts and other opto-mechanical parts. They are available for single, double and quadruple pass configurations. In addition, a user friendly GUI is provided standard motion routines both in delay and linear units. For more information, visit newport.com/f/delay-line-stages.
