The femtoJock line of pulse shapers offers our best cost-to-value ratio. Equipped with a single- or dual-mask 128-pixel liquid-crystal SLM, it provides good spectral resolution and comes configured to fit the customer's laser source specifications. It is an excellent choice for pulse compression and most pulse shaping applications.

"We compress pulses from a home-built NOPA using a femtoJock from Biophotonic Solutions,
which we consider to be an outstanding product. We no longer need to work hard to reproduce
transform-limited pulses when we tune the wavelength of the bandwidth of our source, nor
to characterise our pulses. Incorporating this device into all of our ultrafast laser systems
is now a no-brainer."

"I am currently in charge of the spectroscopy lab here and I use the femtoJock on a daily basis. I have seen this system demonstrated in our lab at the University of Southern California as a grad student and have been very pleased to have one here in Maryland. As a postdoc who has shaped and compressed femtosecond pulses throughout my graduate and post-graduate career, I can say that Biophotonic Solutions has provided a great product. I have had experience with several commercial and home built systems, none of which provide the convenience, adaptability and efficiency of using this SLM with MIIPS. I can see myself recommending and using this system for as long as I need to reliably shape, manipulate and compress laser pulses."
