- 210 – 4800 nm tuning range
- 1 – 4 ps pulse duration
- Nearly bandwidth-limited output, < 15 cm-1 spectral bandwidth
- Up to 100 kHz repetition rate
- High stability by seeding with femtosecond white-light continuum
ORPHEUS-PS is a narrow-bandwidth optical parametric amplifier, designed for PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers. This device is pumped by the picosecond pulses produced in a second harmonic bandwidth compressor SHBC and is seeded by a white-light continuum generated by femtosecond pulses. This enables very high pulse-to-pulse stability compared to other methods of generating tunable picosecond pulses. The white-light generation module is integrated into the same housing as the amplification modules, enabling even better long-term stability and ease of use. The system features high conversion efficiency, bandwidth- and diffraction-limited output, and full computer control.
Part of the laser radiation can be split to simultaneously pump a femtosecond OPA, providing broad-bandwidth 630 nm – 16 μm tunable pulses, giving access to the complete set of beams necessary for versatile spectroscopy applications such as femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (FSRS) and sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy.
