The order has been placed for the new laser system: a Coherent Legend Elite Duo (8 mJ, 25 fs, 1 kHz) along with TOPAS HE Prime (tunable from 1160 nm to 2600 nm, hopefully > 1 mJ in each of signal and idler).

To host it, and the full beam-line, our new 10 m long optical table has also been ordered from Newport.

Hopefully these will arrive and be installed in July – first light in August!
