The University awarded a contract for a mode locked, solid state picosecond laser to Altos Photonics, Incorporated, Bozeman, MT, for an estimated $116,270.
This laser uses an ultra-short pulse duration and a narrow line width. This laser can also be used in resonance enhanced ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
The University has determined that this purchase is only economically available from this source because the items are required for research and no other source is able to meet the researcher's documented needs.
