optical parametric amplifiers

The highlight of tunable wavelength sources is the ORPHEUS series of femtosecond optical parametric amplifiers (OPAs) for pumping with Yb-doped lasers. The ORPHEUS series enables operation at high repetition rates while maintaining the best properties of TOPAS series OPAs such as the wide tuning range from deep-UV to mid-IR and high output stability. In combination with the PHAROS or CARBIDE femtosecond laser, it makes an invaluable source for ultrafast spectroscopy, nonlinear microscopy, and a variety of other applications. The list of tunable wavelength sources has been extended by the addition of I-OPA, a compact industrial-grade OPA, and CRONUS-3P, an OPA-based ultrafast source with GDD control for advanced nonlinear microscopy.

optical parametric amplifiers

The Stuttgart Instruments Alpha is an ultrafast and fully wavelength-tunable frequency conversion system in an ultra-compact and completely passively stable system based on revolutionary parametric oscillator design which guarantees outstanding stability, reproducibility and shot-noise limited performance.

The revolutionary design of Stuttgart Instruments Alpha, characterized by outstanding low noise and passive long-term stability, is based on the fiber-feedback optical parametric oscillator (FFOPO) technology and results in outstanding performance and high flexibility at the same time.

The Alpha covers a gap-free rapid tunable spectral range from 700 nm to 20 µm wavelengths, while maintaining high output power up to the Watt-level with femto- or picosecond pulses at several MHz pulse repetition rates. It provides multiple simultaneously tunable outputs with a selectable bandwidth from a few to 100 cm-1. Shot-noise limited performance above 300 kHz, passive spectral stability (< 0.02% rms) and wavelength-independent stable beam pointing (< 30 µrad) enable excellent sensitivity. In addition, each Alpha is equipped with a user-friendly ethernet and Wi-Fi interface and a matching graphical user interface (GUI) as well as easy to access API interfaces for e.g. LabView, Python, C++.

Typically, the Alpha is pumped by an ultra-low-noise Primus pump laser, which provides more than 8 W average output power at 1040 nm wavelength and 450 fs pulse duration at 42 MHz repetition rate. In addition, the Alpha can be operated with other pump lasers around 1 µm wavelength and enough power.

Due to our modular platform, the Alpha can be adapted and optimized for various applications and is particularly suited for spectroscopic applications requiring a robust and reliable tunable radiation with low noise.
