Levante Emerald High Power

Levante Emerald HP

High power version of the hugely popular Levante Emerald ps OPO, offering up to 6W of tunable ps pulses in the NIR/IR range. Perfect for applications such as ARPES, when combined with the APE HarmoniXX series to reach ~190nm (6.5eV).


  • Pulsed
  • Wavelength 192 to 2450nm
  • Power 0 to 6W
  • Repetition rate 80MHz
  • Pulsewidth 14 to 16ps
  • Tunable


Product Decription

The Levante Emerald High Power (HP) picosecond optical parametric oscillator (OPO) is now available with sufficiently high signal output power to provide tunable picosecond pulses in the <195nm-215nm ultraviolet range. More than 5mW average power is available at 207nm with a spectral bandwidth of less than 0.1nm.

The standard Levante Emerald Picosecond OPO offers widely tunable picosecond pulses of >0.75W in the 690nm -990nm (signal) and >0.6W in the 1150nm - 2300nm (idler) ranges at 80MHz repetition rate. Now, this new Levante Emerald HP comes with increased signal output power of over 6W, and when coupled with APEs simple HarmoniXX FHG frequency conversion unit, offers computer controlled tuning between 190nm and 215nm, and with >5mW at 207nm. The HarmoniXX unit may also be easily configured to provide higher power, tunable picosecond pulses at longer wavelengths up to around 325nm. This new light source sees applications in ultrafast spectroscopy and pump-probe measurements in the UV range, photo-electron spectroscopy and direct one-photon excitation of UV transitions.

APE have a complementary range of laser diagnostic equipment for complete laser characterisation of picosecond and femtosecond laser pulses including autocorrelators, pulse pickers and spectral phase interferometry for direct electric-field reconstruction (Spiders).

  • Tunable picosecond pulses
  • <195nm to >16 microns tunability


This product could be used for the following applications:

  • Coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS)
  • Fluorescence spectroscopy
  • Pump probe spectroscopy


This product is manufactured by APE GmbH.
