APL2200 series amplifiers are designed to produce up to 60 mJ picosecond pulses at kilohertz pulse repetition rate.
Model APL2201 delivers 10 mJ, 90 ps pulses at up to 1 kHz repetition rate.
Model APL2203 delivers 30 mJ, 90 ps pulses at up to 1 kHz repetition rate.
Model APL2205 delivers 60 mJ, 90 ps pulses at up to 1 kHz repetition rate.
Short pulse duration, excellent pulse-to-pulse stability, superior beam quality makes APL2200 series diode pumped picosecond amplifiers well suited for applications like OPCPA pumping, material processing, non-linear optics and others.
Master oscillator/Power amp lifier (MOPA) design
APL2200 series amplifiers are designed to be seeded by PL2210 series lasers. Pulses from PL2210x lasers are spatially shaped and amplified in double-pass amplifiers with thermally induced birefringence compensation. Advanced optical design ensures smooth, without hot spots beam spatial profile at the laser output. Low light depolarization level allows high efficiency generation of up to 4th harmonics with build-in harmonics generators.
The amplifiers are compatible with all optional items that are offered for seed lasers of PL2210 series. For example, repetition rate and timing of the pulses can be locked to the external RF source (with –PLL option) or other ultrafast laser system (with –FS option).
Build-in harmonic generators
Angle-tuned LBO and/or BBO crystals mounted in temperature stabilized heaters are used for second, third and fourth harmonic generation. Harmonics separation system is designed to ensure high spectral purity of radiation and direct it to the output ports.
Simple and convenient laser control
For customer convenience the amplifier can be controlled through user-friendly remote control pad or USB interface. If APL2200 unit is seeded by PL2210 series laser, it is possible to control both laser and amplifier from the same remote control pad. The control pad features a backlit display that is easy to read even while wearing laser safety eyewear. Alternatively, the amplifier can be controlled from personal computer with supplied software for Windows™ operating system. LabVIEW™ drivers are supplied as well.
