ORPHEUS-TWINS consists of two independently tunable optical parametric amplifiers (OPAs) in a compact footprint. The OPAs are optically synchronized and provide simultaneous outputs. Integrated into a single housing, both OPAs share the same white-light seed enabling the generation of broadband mid-infrared (MIR) radiation with a passively stable carrier‑envelope phase (CEP).

Each of the OPA can be configured separately to a version of ORPHEUS, ORPHEUS-F, or ORPHEUS-ONE. Check the respective models for more information and detailed specifications.

For high-repetition-rate (76 MHz) dual-output source, refer to CRONUS-2P.
