The largest manufacturer of femtosecond optical parametric amplifiers (OPAs), LIGHT CONVERSION launched an ultrafast source based on OPA technology for broadband mid-IR pulses – ORPHEUS-MIR.
ORPHEUS-MIR is a versatile system optimized for the efficient generation of broadband mid-IR pulses. The system provides broadband pulses with bandwidth up to 500 cm-1 in the tuning range of 2500 – 11000 nm, and it reaches up to 15000 nm with optional narrowband extension. ORPHEUS-MIR architecture is well-suited for high energy and high power PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers.
Intense ultrashort broadband pulses in mid-IR perfectly suit a number of scientific applications, including but not limited to broadband vibrational sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy, time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (TR-ARPES), high-harmonic generation (HHG), and other applications.
Key features of ORPHEUS-MIR:
- Broad bandwidth up to 500 cm-1
- Broad tuning range 2500 – 11000 nm
- Pulse duration of <100 fs
- Up to 40 W pump power, up to 2 mJ pump energy
- Auxiliary broadband output at ~2 000 nm
- Optional narrowband extension up to 15 000 nm
- Optional CEP stability
