The Spectra-Physics® Inspire™ ultrafast OPO family
delivers unprecedented tuning range from
345 nm to 2.5 µm gap-free and with
no change of intracavity optics or crystals. Pumped with the Mai Tai®
ultrafast Ti:Sapphire lasers, they also deliver exceptionally high power across
the UV and visible range and provide adjustable pulse width from 80 to 350 fs.
The Inspire OPO features user-friendly, computer-controlled tuning across the
range with no changes in optics or crystals. The system’s robust design ensures
high stability and insensitivity to ambient temperature change.
Inspire OPO family offers:
- User-friendly gap-free tuning from 345 nm to 2.5 µm—no change of optics or
- Five output ports available: signal output (490-750 nm), idler output
(930-2500 nm), fundamental output (690-1040 nm), doubled fundamental output
(345-520 nm), and alignment output.
- Simultaneous output from either two or three output ports—ideal for
applications requiring more than one wavelength such as CARS.
- HF version with fully-automated hands-free
wavelength tuning complete with automated cavity alignment to maintain optimal
power and pulse durations.
- Auto version with semi-automated tuning and nearly
transform-limited pulse duration flexibility (80-350 fs) for tailoring pulse
widths to match experimental conditions.
With its unprecedented gap-free wavelength coverage with no
change in optics required, the Inspire OPO family is the next-generation OPO for
developing cutting-edge imaging and spectroscopy applications.
