- Output pulses perfectly synchronized in time
- Computer controlled wavelength tuning
- Standardized Software Interface
The Levante IR Scientific ps is a synchronously pumped OPO (optical parametric oscillator) with a mode-locked picosecond laser emitting at 1 μm as fixedwavelength pump source. Its housing, inner control electronics and software were completely new developed for easier handling and more automated control.
The accessible wavelength range for the Signal output is 1320 … 1980 nm and the wavelength range for the Idler output (optional) is 2150 … 4700 nm (when pumped @ 1031 nm). This is ideal for applications that require tunable light in the IR, e. g. vibrational spectroscopy.
The OPO comes with a periodically poled FAN crystal as gain medium. Therefore temperature tuning is not necessary even for fast tuning. Due to the new platform tuning will be automated and can be controlled via software. A TCP/IP interface is available as well.
The Levante IR Scientific ps is a versatile narrow bandwidth light source for picosecond pulses. When combined with extra-cavity SHG (Second Harmonic Generation), THG (Third Harmonic Generation) and DFG (Difference Frequency Generation) wavelength converters of the HarmoniXX series, almost every wavelength from 440 nm up to 15 μm can be generated.
