Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corp. brand, introduces Spirit-OPA, an automated optical parametric amplifier (OPA) intended for use with Spectra-Physics’ Spirit high-repetition-rate ultrafast laser.
Spirit and Spirit-OPA together create a high energy, ultrafast laser system that tunes virtually gap-free from the mid-infrared (mid-IR) to the deep ultraviolet (DUV) with user-adjustable repetition rates from tens of kHz up to 1 MHz. The user-friendly system is suitable for high repetition rate, time-resolved spectroscopy applications such as single molecule studies, nonlinear optics, and fluorescence lifetime measurements.
Spirit-OPA can be pumped with the Spirit 1040-4 and the Spirit 1040-8 laser. Spectra-Physics’ Spirit is a high-repetition-rate industrial-grade femtosecond laser.
