New, joint publication using a customized APE picosecond OPAAPEOctober 12th, 2022
The group of Prof. Dr. Stefan Nolte in Jena, Germany published the first paper using the customized, picosecond optical parametric amplifier (OPA) system from APE. This light source was specifically designed for the customer requirements, enabling high-energy, picosecond Coherent anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (CARS) analysis of high pressure gas. The key features of the OPA system are laser pulses tunable between 700 and 940 nm wavelength, with pulse energies above 160 µJ and a very narrow and constant spectral bandwidth of 20 cm-1 achieved over the entire spectral tuning range. The open access article from Xiaodong Zhao et. al is published in OpticsExpress. (Link)
Aside from customized OPA systems, APE offers a wide range of wavelength tunable light sources, which can be specifically tailor for the customer needs. The product portfolio covers OPA and OPO devices, as well as frequency converters and devices to modify the spectral bandwidth or pulse repetition rate of a laser source.
