High Efficiency Gratings for Laser Pulse Compression - Wasatch Photonics

21 Jan 2022

Create shorter, more powerful laser pulses with transmission gratings from Wasatch Photonics. Our volume phase holographic (VPH) technology is exceptional for pulse compression and pulse stretching of high power ultrafast lasers, offering high efficiency and virtually no ghosting or scatter. Our proprietary process encapsulates the grating structure in a robust package for easily cleaning and handling, which simplifies integration and alignment – in the lab or on the production line.


  • Exceptional 1st order diffraction efficiency, single polarization
  • High transmission over the full spectral band
  • Low wavefront distortion, minimal scatter
  • Uniform over the full clear aperture for minimal beam distortion
  • Ideal for high pulse energy applications
  • Robust design allows easy cleaning & handling
  • Maximum optical design flexibility

Many designers choose transmission gratings for their pulse stretcher and compressor designs due to the ability to create a flexible, compact, folded layout. Our ultraclear, high performance gratings ensure you get the shortest, cleanest pulses. Choose from our range of stock gratings available for purchase online, or contact us to request a custom design.


At Wasatch Photonics, we understand the processes & metrology needed to manufacture high quality pulse compression gratings in volume, at wavelengths up to 2500 nm. We work collaboratively with our OEM partners on each design and test procedure, establishing customer-specific test fixtures at our site. This reduces the burden of inbound testing at your site for guaranteed system-ready performance. Take the Wasatch VPH challenge and reduce your pulse length by up to 15%. We are your partner, from small quantity prototyping through to volume production. Learn more about our OEM capabilities.
