GTI mirrors

Dispersive Coatings

The higher the GDD, the smaller the spectral bandwidth GTI mirrors are basically Bragg mirrors with ad­ded and precisely adjusted spacer layers in the upper section of the film stack which work like a Gires-Tournois-Interferometer (GTI).

Resonances introduced by the spacer layers can produce very high GDD values but these are limited: The higher the GDD, the smaller the spectral bandwidth (see curves of three different GTI mirrors on the right).

LASEROPTIK offers GTI mirrors with GDD values up to about 5000 fs². Even higher values are possible but will lead to increased optical losses and lower LIDT.

GTI mirrors may be equipped with additional features like a pass band for the pump laser or a tailored transmittance, so they can be used as out-coupling mirrors. A typical application is the dispersion management in Ytterbium based lasers.
