AVUS Short-pulse Debuts at Photonics West 2018 Short-pulse OPA for Microscopy & Spectroscopy

A short-pulse version of AVUS from APE debuts at SPIE BIOS & Photonics West in San Francisco (27 January – 1 February 2018) as part of the Optical Parametric Amplifier (OPA) product line. OPAs from APE are frequency converters for femtosecond laser used for spectroscopy and microscopy applications. With respect to microscopy applications, the new AVUS SP with shorter pulses of 70 fs (and below) will increase the imaging contrast and improve the signal-to-noise ratio. The improvement is due to [...]

FROG-technique Covers 1800 – 2200 nm Precisely Characterize Laser Pulses Emitting 2 µm

FROG now covers the wavelength range of 1800 nm – 2200 nm and opens the door to precisely characterize pulsed laser systems emitting in the spectral region of 2 µm. Famous representatives of pulsed laser sources to cover this wavelength region are OPOs and classical OPAs. Beside this, Thulium- (Tm) and Holmium- (Ho) doped materials enable pulsed laser emission with comparatively high pulse energies. New candidates in this field are, for example, fiber-based pico-second sources such as master oscillator power [...]

Pulse Compression Explained Learn Details about Pulse Compression & Dispersion Compensation

Mastering dispersion of a short pulsed laser beam is important to maintain the quality of laser beams and improve its performance for various microscopy applications. For this reason, pulse compression (and stretching) and dispersion compensation are two very important topics that need to be mastered by laser users and microscopy operators. In our article we will explain the cause of dispersion and show how to compensate this effect by the means of a pulse compressor and dispersion management. You [...]

About the most important novelties and further plans on the website: “With the renewal of we want to offer our users an even better experience to retrieve the relevant information,” says the Head of Marketing Thomas Neicke. New features and a new layout enable customers to find the most suitable scientific equipment for them and their applications more easily and quickly. Furthermore, it was necessary to transfer the new corporate design of [...]

Carmina Tunable MIR Laser Source

APE plans to launch a new MIR (mid-infrared) laser source – Carmina. The new design incorporates tuning and automation. As in many of APE’s products, OPO technology and wavelength conversion play a key role in the development of Carmina. Details on the product and application will be announced at a later date.
