Description

UltraFlux FT300 series is a compact high energy tunable wavelength femtosecond laser system which incorporates the advantages of ultrafast fiber laser, solid-state and parametric amplification technologies. Novel OPCPA front-end technology uses the same picosecond fiber laser for seeding both picosecond DPSS pump laser and femtosecond parametric amplifier by spectrally broadened output. This approach greatly simplifies the system – excludes femtosecond regenerative amplifier and eliminates the need of pump and seed pulse synchronization. In addition to that, contrast of the output pulses in picosecond to nanosecond time scale is potentially increased.

All UltraFlux series laser systems are assembled on a rigid breadboard to ensure excellent long-term stability. Modular internal design offers high level of customization and easy scalability. These systems can be customized according to customer requirements.

Incorporation of parametric amplification technology together with a novel ultrafast fiber laser helped to create and bring to the market a new tool for femtosecond pump-probe, nonlinear spectroscopy, emerging high harmonic generation experiments and other femtosecond and nonlinear spectroscopy applications. With this laser ultrafast science breakthrough is closer to any photonics lab than ever before.

  1. Presented parameters are from delivered systems and can be customized to meet customer‘s requirements.
  2. Pulse contrast is only limited by amplified parametric fluorescence (APF) in the temporal range of ~90 ps which covers OPCPA pump pulse duration and is better than 10⁶ : 1. APF contrast depends on OPCPA saturation level (see Performance section). Our system is ASE-free and pulse contrast value in nanosecond range is limited only by measurement device capabilities (third-order autocorrelator). There are no pre-pulses generated in the system and post-pulses are eliminated by using wedged transmission optics.
  3. With -PLL option purchased.
  4. With SH/TH or SH/TH/FH module.

We present a high peak and average power optical parametric chirped pulse amplification system driven by diode-pumped Yb:KGW and Nd:YAG lasers running at 1 kHz repetition rate. The advanced architecture of the system allows us to achieve >53 W average power combined with 5.5 TW peak power, along with sub-220 mrad CEP stability and sub-9 fs pulse duration at a center wavelength around 880 nm. Broadband, background-free, passively CEP stabilized seed pulses are produced in a series of cascaded optical parametric amplifiers pumped by the Yb:KGW laser, while a diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser system provides multi-mJ pump pulses for power amplification stages. Excellent stability of output parameters over 16 hours of continuous operation is demonstrated.

We present a compact TW-class OPCPA system operating at 800 nm. Broadband seed pulses are generated and pre-amplified to 25 mJ in a white light continuum seeded femtosecond NOPA. Amplification of the seed pulses to 35 mJ at a repetition rate of 10 Hz and compression to 9 fs is demonstrated.
