Overview

I‑OPA is an optical parametric amplifier of white‑light continuum pumped by the PHAROS laser. This OPA is focused on generating long‑term stable output with reliable and hands‑off operation. Manually tunable output wavelength extends the application possibi­lities of a single laser source instead of requiring multiple lasers based on different technologies.

In comparison to standard ORPHEUS line of devices, the I‑OPA lacks only computer controlled wavelength selection. On the other hand, in‑laser mounted de­sign provides mechanical stability and eliminates the effects of air‑turbulence, ensuring stable long‑term performance and minimizing energy fluctuations.

  1. 1)Better stability can be specified for a specific wavelength (e.g.<1 % STD at 800 nm).
  2. 2)Output pulse duration depends on wavelength and pump laser pulse duration.
  3. 3)I‑OPA‑F outputs broad bandwidth pulses which are compressed externally.
