optical parametric amplifiers

For researchers demanding a wide tuning range, high conversion efficiency and narrow line-width, EKSPLA optical parametric oscillators/amplifiers are an excellent choice. All models feature hands-free wavelength tuning, a protection system for valuable optical components as well as a wide range of accessories and extension units.

EKSPLA's long-term experience and close cooperation with scientific institutions made it possible to create a range of models, offering probably the widest tuning range: from 193 nm to 16000 nm. Versions offering near transform-limited linewidth as well as operating at kilohertz repetition rates are available.

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 recently 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.

The Stuttgart Instruments Alpha system is a modular, wavelength-tunable laser covering the 700 nm to 20 µm spectral range. It provides ultrafast pulses at MHz repetition rates and milliwatt- to watt-level power. Due to its excellent passive long-term stability, outstanding performance at the shot-noise limit and broad spectral range, it is ideally suited for sensitive IR applications.

The Alpha system can be configured optimium for your application. Its basic version is tunable from 1.35 µm to 4.5 µm, but can be upgraded to higher power, to the VIS (700 – 980 nm), the NIR (1.1 – 1.4 µm) and the MIR range (4.5 – 20 µm). Each module is field upgradable, and the entire system is fully automated and controlled via a user-friendly GUI.

Find harmony in four perfectly synchronised and precisely tunable wavelength outputs produced by the Fluence Harmony Optical Parametric Amplifier (OPA).

Fluence Harmony is a device that precisely converts ultrafast pulses of one band (e.g. 1030-nm pulses coming from Fluence Jasper) into a set of pulsed laser beams tunable in an extremely broad spectrum of wavelengths, ranging from 210 nm up to 2600 nm. All automated, all software-controlled.

A growing number of ultrafast spectroscopy techniques has prompted the need for a robust and reliable, self-diagnostic device like Harmony. The optical parametric amplifier is fully compatible with all femtosecond lasers and provides automated tuning across the basic tuning range.
