Orpheus - Collinear Optical Parametric Amplifier

ORPHEUS is a collinear optical parametric amplifier maintaining the best features of TOPAS series amplifiers: high output stability throughout the entire tuning range, high output pulse and beam quality, full computer control via USB port as well as lots of optional frequency mixers to extend the tuning range from UV up to mid-IR ranges. It can also operate at a wide range of repetition rates up to 2 MHz.

Description 

Features

  • 190 nm – 16000 nm tunable wavelength
  • Single pulse – 2 MHz repetition rate
  • Up to 80 W pump power
  • Up to 2 mJ pump energy
  • Completely automated
  • Integrated spectrometers for monitoring the output wavelength

ORPHEUS is a collinear optical parametric amplifier (OPA). Coupled with a PHAROS or CARBIDE femtosecond laser, ORPHEUS emits femtosecond pulses tunable from ultraviolet (UV) to mid-infrared (MIR) at a repetition rate of up to 2 MHz. Thus, it is an invaluable tool for ultrafast spectroscopy, nonlinear microscopy, and microstructuring applications.

The ORPHEUS collinear OPA comes in three different configurations to perfectly match the customer needs. The basic ORPHEUS configuration is a cost-effective choice providing a wide and gapless tuning range from 630 to 2600 nm, which is extendable down to 210 nm with an external harmonic generator. If higher pump power and a higher-level of automation are desired, the ORPHEUS-HP configuration is your choice. It offers complete automation and integrates all of the wavelength extension options into a single thermally-stabilized housing. Its wavelength tuning is completely hands‑free and uses automated wavelength separation to ensure the same position and direction for the 190 – 2600 nm output. The spectral range is extendable up to 16 µm; thus, covering the entire spectrum from UV to MIR. Similar to ORPHEUS-HP, the ORPHEUS‑HE configuration brings the aforementioned automation but also accepts high pump pulse energy.
