Levante Emerald ultrafast OPOs

Levante Emerald OPO Laser

The Levante Emerald OPO laser is a low cost solution from APE for generating ultrafast pulses tunable over a wide range with high output energy in the NIR.

Using a frequency doubled Nd:YVO Laser (523 nm) as pump source this OPO provides the user with an attractive low cost solution for generating picosecond pulses tunable over a wide range with high output energy in the NIR from < 700 nm ... >2500 nm.

Pulses are bandwidth limited, show high beam quality and great pointing stability at the same time. The perfect spatial and temporal overlap of signal and idler beam (which are outcoupled on one joint beam axis (collinear)) constitutes a completely new quality. The difference in energy between the two wavelengths is continuously tuneable. These features make the Levante Emerald the ideal light source for multicolor excitation experiments like CARS microscopy (Coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering).

APE have a complementary range of laser diagnostic equipment for complete laser characterisation of ps and femtosecond laser pulses including autocorrelators, pulse pickers and SPIDERS.

NEW: Short-picosecond (2ps) and femtosecond versions of the Levante Emerald OPO series are now available.

NEW: A dedicated family of Emerald Engine pump lasers is now available.
