Benefiting from the industrial-grade stability and reliability of the PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers, ORPHEUS-OPCPA delivers few-cycle, CEP-stable pulses in a package as compact as our standard parametric amplifiers. All of the ORPHEUS‑OPCPA models use the same base architecture to produce CEP-stable, few-cycle pulses in one of the four center wavelengths: 800 nm, 1600 nm, 2000 nm, and 3000 nm. ORPHEUS-OPCPA is available in versions with pulse compressors for direct use in applications or in versions intended as seed sources, delivering background-free pulses with near-single-cycle bandwidths, excellent spectral phase coherence, and CEP stability.

By using bundled CARBIDE or PHAROS lasers, pump power of up to 320 W and pump pulse energy of up to 8 mJ is accessible. The use of other pump sources for higher power, such as thin-disk or innoslab lasers, is available upon request.
