Levante IR ultrafast OPOs

Levante OPO Laser

The Levante OPO from APE is a synchronously pumped OPO with a picosecond or femtosecond pump source.

The Levante OPO is a versatile, narrow-bandwidth, pulsed light source with picosecond or femtosecond pulse length and high average power. There is no jitter between the OPO pulses and the ones from the laser. Due to the use of a fixed frequency pump laser the system is cost effective and delivers high output power.

Wavelength ranges directly available from the Levante are: 1390 - 1920 nm Signal and 2390 - 4500 nm idler. Combined with extracavity SHG, THG and difference frequency generation virtually every wavelength from 250 nm up to 16µm can be generated.

NEW: Short-picosecond (2ps) and femtosecond versions of the Levante IR OPO series are now available.
NEW: A dedicated family of Emerald Engine pump lasers is now available.
