AVUS



AVUS Optical Parametric Amplifier (OPA) Provides Widely Tunable High-Energy Pulses, Ideal for Use With 1 μm Femtosecond Laser


Overview

AVUS is the very latest Optical Parametric Amplifier (OPA) providing widely tunable high-energy pulses. It is ideal for use with 1 μm femtosecond lasers and opens doors for up to 50 W pump power. The user-friendly and maintenance-free unit is air-cooled and constructed with a monolithic case design for long-term thermal stability, even at maximum pump power.

At a Glance

  • OPA for 1 μm pump laser
  • < 200 fs and < 70 fs versions available
  • 50 W maximum pumping power
  • Air-cooling and monolithic case for long-term temperature stability
  • Completely automated and fully computer controlled
  • Long-life operation with sealed inner case to protect sensitive components
  • TCP/IP remote control with standardized command set for easy programming
  • 24/7 integrated performance monitoring of both laser system and AVUS

AVUS SP | 70 fs

The fully-automated and alignment-free unit provides pulse durations below 70 femtoseconds. A short-pulse compression unit provides full dispersion control. Therefore AVUS SP is ideally suited for Multi-Photon Microscopy.

  • OPA for 1 μm pump laser
  • 50 W maximum pumping power
  • Pulse duration of 70 fs and below
  • Tunable from 325 nm … 2.5 μm
  • Air-cooling and monolithic case for long-term temperature stability

AVUS | 200 fs

The fully-automated and alignment-free unit covers a wide wavelength range, including options, from UV to IR. The integrated tuning and automatic wavelength separation of the AVUS maintain the same beam position and direction for all wavelengths.

  • OPA for 1 μm pump laser
  • 50 W maximum pumping power
  • Pulse duration of about 200 fs
  • Tunable from 210 nm … 11 μm
  • Air-cooling and monolithic case for long-term temperature stability
