Pulse compression with hollow core fiber

In the Suits Group femtolab, we are implementing strong field ionization-induced Coulomb explosion of small molecules using a Wyvern 1000 (KM Labs) providing 3 mJ/pulse output with femtosecond temporal width. In this lab, we use the 3D (tie and position) multimass coincidence detection method developed by the Wen Li group. Using this method we are able to reconstruct the three dimensional ion distribution by matching ion events obtained from a photomultiplier tube (PMT) connected to a high speed digitizer and a fast-frame CMOS camera.
