Overview

ORPHEUS is collinear optical parametric amplifier of white light continuum pumped by femtosecond Ytterbium based laser amplifiers. With the additional feature of being able to work at high repetition rates, ORPHEUS maintains the best properties of TOPAS series OPA‘s: high output pulse stability throughout the entire tuning range, high output beam quality and full computer control via USB port as well as optional frequency mixers to extend the tuning range from UV up to mid IR ranges.

Femtosecond pulses, high power tunable output together with flexible multi kilohertz repetition rate make the tandem of ORPHEUS and PHAROS or CARBIDE laser an invaluable tool for multiphoton microscopy, micro structuring and spectroscopy applications. Several ORPHEUS can be pumped by a single PHAROS or CARBIDE laser providing independent beam wavelength tuning.

ORPHEUS‑HP and ORPHEUS‑HE devices are modified versions of the ORPHEUS. ORPHEUS-HP is available with UV-VIS tuning range frequency mixers integrated into a thermally stabilized monolithic housing. Also, it provides the option of generating deep ultraviolet pulses (190 – 215 nm) and DFG (2200 – 16000 nm). The design offers completely hands free wavelength tuning and automated wavelength separation, ensuring the same position and direction for all wavelengths in UV, VIS and near IR regions. A mini spectrometer is integrated for online monitoring of output wavelength and comes with specialized software that enables wavelength feedback and automatic calibration. ORPHEUS-HE is available with UV-VIS tuning range extension and is dedicated for high energy pump lasers (1 – 2 mJ).
