Overview

I-OPA series of optical parametric amplifiers marks a new era of simplicity in the world of tunable wavelength femtosecond light sources. Based on the 10 years of experience producing ORPHEUS series optical parametric amplifiers, this solution brings together the flexibility of tunable wavelength with the robust industrial-grade design. The original I-OPA is rugged module attached to our PHAROS laser, providing the long term stability comparable to that of the industrial harmonics modules. The new and improved tunable version is designed to be coupled with our PHAROS and CARBIDE series femtosecond lasers and primarily intended to be used with spectroscopy or microscopy applications that demand high stability. The -HP model is targeted to be coupled with our HARPIA series as a pump beam source for ultrafast pump-probe spectroscopy. The -F model is primarily designed to be used as a light source in multiphoton microscopy devices. The -ONE model will be useful in the field of mid-IR spectroscopy, as well as other applications where higher pulse energy is required in the infrared part of the spectrum. All of these models can be used for micromachining and other industrial applications, with the tunable version suited to be the ideal R&D system, while the fixed wavelength I-OPA would be the cost-effective solution for large scale production.
