Where to Buy Ultrafast Amplifiers

Some ultrafast amplifiers simply amplify the full pulse train from a mode-locked laser, while others first reduce the pulse repetition rate with a pulse picker and reach much higher pulse energies and peak powers. There are different kinds of amplifiers including bulk solid-state and fiber amplifiers including regenerative amplifiers and multipass devices. Besides, there are parametric amplifiers.

ultrafast amplifiers

The RAEA™ Ti:sapphire amplifier builds on KMLabs’ 20-year tradition of leadership in ultrafast science, bringing the unmatched flexibility of previous amplifier systems into a single, hands-free platform. Engineered for high harmonic generation (HHG): now you can stop worrying about the pump. Beyond serving the multitude of applications for which Ti:sapphire lasers have become ubiquitous, RAEA is especially designed as an unparalleled source for producing short wavelength light via high harmonic generation. The award-winning RAEA has been engineered for the most challenging applications rather than the most common, and was specifically designed with the XUUS system in mind for high harmonic generation. From better beam quality and stability, to remote alignment and lower maintenance needs, RAEA serves as a repeatable and reliable source for any of your high harmonic generation needs.

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.
