Optical Parametric Chirped-Pulse Amplification Systems

Optical parametric chirped-pulse amplification (OPCPA) is the only currently available laser technology that simultaneously provides high peak and average power and few-cycle pulse duration required by the most demanding scientific applications. Our portfolio of cutting-edge OPCPA products is based on years of experience developing and manufacturing optical parametric amplifiers and femtosecond lasers. The few-cycle CEP-stable pulses come either in a compact table-top ORPHEUS-OPCPA or a large but TW-level OPCPA-HE, similar to SYLOS at ELI ALPS.

Feature overview
