ORPHEUS-MIR is an OPA optimized for the efficient generation of broad-bandwidth mid-IR pulses. The system provides broadband pulses in the tuning range of 2.5 – 10 μm and reaches up to 15 μm with an optional narrow-bandwidth extension. Due to the novel system design, ORPHEUS-MIR provides < 100 fs pulses directly at the output. Signal and Idler outputs are available simultaneously. The system architecture is well-suited for high energy and high power PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers.

  • Time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (TR-ARPES)
  • Two-dimensional infrared (2D IR) spectroscopy
  • High-harmonic generation (HHG) in solids
  • Other infrared spectroscopy and high-energy physics applications
