The new Levante IR Scientific fs is a synchronously pumped OPO (optical parametric oscillator) in an innovative new design. The pump source is a mode-locked femtosecond laser emitting at 1 µm fixed. The generation of the Signal and Idler pulses in a parametric process is jitter-free with respect to each other as well as to the pump pulse.
The accessible wavelength range for the Signal output is 1320 … 2000 nm and the wavelength range for the Idler output (optional) is 2150 … 4800 nm (when pumped @ 1035 nm). The wavelength tuning itself is now fully automated.
The OPO is ideal for applications requiring tunable light in the IR for, e. g. vibrational spectroscopy Due to a periodically poled FAN crystal as gain medium there is no need for temperature tuning. With the entirely new designed electronics and Control Software the handling has never been easier. Also the new platform allows for best possible customer support through remote access and extensive log files. A TCP/IP interface makes integration into larger software controlled setups easy.
The Levante IR Scientific fs is a versatile light source for femtosecond pulses. In combination with extracavity wavelength converters of the HarmoniXX and HarmoniXX DFG series, almost every wavelength from 330 nm up to 15 μm can be generated.
