Orpheus-F Series - Broad Bandwidth Hybrid Optical Parametric Amplifier

The Orpheus-F is a broad bandwidth hybrid optical parametric amplifier which combines a wide wavelength tuning range 650 - 2500 nm and short pulses down to 25 fs. The short pulse duration is produced by a non‑collinear first stage of OPA combined with second collinear stage. Orpheus-F accepts up to 80 W pump power and can operate at repetition rates up to 2 MHz.

Description 

Features

  • Combines the best features of collinear and non‑collinear OPA
  • <100 fs  pulse duration
  • Adjustable spectral bandwidth
  • Single pulse – 2 MHz repetition rate
  • Computer controlled
  • 650 - 900 nm and 1200 - 2500 nm tuning range

ORPHEUS-F is a hybrid optical parametric amplifier (OPA), combining the short pulse duration produced by a non‑collinear OPA (NOPA) and the wide tuning range offered by a collinear OPA.

The Signal pulses of ORPHEUS-F are tunable in a 650 – 900 nm range and can be compressed with a simple prism-based compressor down to 25 – 70 fs pulse duration. The Idler pulses are tunable in a 1200 – 2500 nm range and reach pulse duration of 40 – 100 fs. In addition, a long-pulse mode is available for accessing the 900 – 1200 nm tuning range; thus, enabling a gap-free tunability.

ORPHEUS-F provides significantly shorter pulses compared to the standard ORPHEUS model and a wider tuning range compared to the non-collinear ORPHEUS-N. Thus, for many scientific applications, ORPHEUS-F is the optimal choice.
