The D-scan system is working fantastic!  I think all our four attosecond labs have a better handle on their pulse durations as a result of the D-scan

  The d-scan system allowed us to characterize our pulse where other diagnostics can't go. It is an easy alignment diagnostic tool capable of providing accurate pulse measurement in a few minutes, from initial alignment to measurement and retrieval. Moreover, the Sphere team has a long expertise and is very helpful and efficient. The installation of the system was great and we use the system everyday without any problems. I definitely recommend d-scan as a basic tool in any ultrafast laser laboratory.
