Radiantis in collaboration with Newport Spectra-Physics launches the InspireTM IR at CLEO USA 2012, a brand new femtosecond Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) for the Infrared
The InspireTM IR is a femtosecond Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO), pumped by a mode-locked Ti:sapphire laser, which offers broad tunability in the near and mid-Infrared. Independent tuning of the pump wavelength between 720 and 810 nm, and the signal wavelength between 1000 and 1580 nm, is provided through the two separate pump and signal output ports available in this OPO. The user can easily select amongst accessing: (i) 100% of the pump through the pump port, with no signal through the signal port, (ii) 20% of the pump through the pump port, with partial signal through the signal port, or (iii) 0% of the pump through the pump output port, with full signal through the signal port.
As a sealed system, the InspireTM IR does not provide user access to the internal cavity. As a result, absolutely hands-free operation is guaranteed, with manual alignment of the OPO neither possible nor required. Tuning across the range can be readily achieved within a few seconds, by controlling the system exclusively via a simple and dedicated PC user-interface.
The InspireTM IR delivers unique conversion efficiency performance, resulting in high power levels across the signal range. Also, near-transform-limited pulses, excellent power stability and exceptional beam quality across the tuning range are provided.
The InspireTM IR is a USB compatible and compact system formed by a single optics unit (703 x 395 x 192 mm), which does not require additional bulky external units such as chillers or MRU air recirculators. A portable and ready installed computer is also available with this OPO.
