Multi-shot Frequency-resolved Optical Gating
The MS-FROG expands our FROG series and is preferably used when it comes to pulse energies in the pJ-nJ range or when particularly large pulse duration ranges need to be covered. e.g. 4 fs to 80 ps. The MS-FROG-SP measures both fs-ultrashort and long ps-pulses thanks to its resolution of 50 attoseconds in fine-scan mode. Our MS-FROG integrates in-house built spectrometers specifically developed for FROG measurements and guarantee high spectral resolution and the best performances for pulse characterization.
Easy to use
no calibration and no tweaking necessary
pJ/nJ energy pulses
for laser sources with very low pulse energy in the pJ and nJ range
Up to 50 attoseconds resolution
with fine scan mode, you combine extreme resolutions with large scan ranges
accurate results on fs-ultra-short pulses and ps-pulses
Proprietary hot-swap spectrometers
tailored to specific requirements (not limited by 3rd-party models), easily swappable for different wavelength ranges

2 Effective spectral bandwidth to be defined within the accessible spectral range according to customer’s requirements. Additional spectrometers can be provided to address different spectral windows.
3 Low repetition rate available as an option
4 Values give an order of magnitude. The exact sensitivity depends on many parameters (pulse duration, beam profile, wavelength...)
The default MS-FROG configuration includes one crystal. To extend the wavelength range of the device, additional plug&play crystals can be ordered and swapped within the system in seconds
Additional MISS spectrometer
The default MS-FROG configuration includes one imaging spectrometer MISS. To extend the wavelength range of the device, additional plug&play MISS spectrometers can be ordered and swapped within the system in seconds
Fiber input connector
Plug&play collimation module with fiber connector. Can be mounted on the MS-FROG to easily switch the input from free-space to fiber. No alignment required.
Optimization of the sensitivity of the MS-FROG when the laser power is too weak
Low repetition rate
Synchronization mode to be used when the laser repetition rate is low. Recommended from below 200 kHz
Default MS-FROG configuration works for a given central wavelength. Phase matching allows tuning the SHG crystal to measure different central wavelengths with the best SNR
Few cycle extension
Extension of the minimum pulse duration to the few cycle pulses range. Down to 10 fs for MS-FROG and down to 4 fs for MS-FROG-SP and MS-FROG-SLP
Software: FROG Acquisition and Retrieval with STAR
The retrieval of the ultrashort-pulse from the FROG trace image is managed by our easy-to-use FROG software. Fast FROG software comes with an optimized retrieval algorithm and allows you to retrieve time and spectral information in real-time.
Several algorithms (including the so called Ptychographic Iterative Engine) are combined to enhance the reconstruction speed and quality.
Thanks to speed, the live extraction of shot-to-shot pulse properties are achieved, such as temporal profile intensity and phase, fundamental spectrum and phase, pulse chirp, third-order dispersion, and, of course, pulse duration (FWHM, autocorrelation FWHM, Fourier-limited pulse duration).
FROG in the Lab
FROG made easy
Our engineers employ the latest technologies and frameworks to create FROG solutions that combine a strong easy-to-use experience with high scientific performance. Note: The video shows our Single-shot FROG system, however, the operation of the MS-FROG is similar to the Single-Shot FROG.
