Levante IR - ps version
Our optical parametric oscillators are the most advanced in the industry, with leading technology plus a range of options to suit every system and customer need.
fs / ps MHz OPO | fixed frequency pumped
The Levante IR - ps is a synchronously pumped OPO (optical parametric oscillator) with a mode-locked picosecond laser emitting at 1 μm as fixedwavelength pump source. Its housing, inner control electronics and software were completely new developed for easier handling and more automated control.
The accessible wavelength range for the Signal output is 1315 ... 2000 nm and the wavelength range for the Idler output (optional) is 2150 ... 4700 nm (when pumped @ 1031 nm). This is ideal for applications that require tunable light in the IR, e. g. vibrational spectroscopy.
The OPO comes with a periodically poled FAN crystal as gain medium. Therefore temperature tuning is not necessary even for fast tuning. Due to the new platform tuning will be automated and can be controlled via software. A TCP/IP interface is available as well.
The Levante IR - ps is a versatile narrow bandwidth light source for picosecond pulses. When combined with extra-cavity SHG (Second Harmonic Generation), THG (Third Harmonic Generation) and DFG (Difference Frequency Generation) wavelength converters of the HarmoniXX series, almost every wavelength from 660 nm up to 15 μm can be generated.
