The TiF-Kit is a set of optical and mechanical components that contains all important elements of a femtosecond solid-state laser for customer-specified configuration. The kit features a simpler semi-unfolded scheme than that of the TiF laser series, however, we can supply various custom configurations upon request. The system is pumped by a suitable commercial DPSS 532 nm pump laser. The output power of the system depends on the pump laser power.

The basic system consists of:
- rigid optomechanical elements
- dielectric ultrafast cavity mirrors
- pump beam steering and focusing optics
- Ti:S crystal with adjustable mount and cooling circulation outlets
- manual prisms and tuning slit
- manual starter for mode-locking initiation

The system may be further equipped with optional components like:
- enclosure
- main breadboard with pump laser area
- thermostabilized breadboard
- pump laser cooling adapter
- USB tuning slit w. software
- Automatic starter w. pulse train output
- CW tuning with manual or motorized BRF
- CW etalons
