Spectra-Physics® Unveils New Ultrafast Lasers at CLEO 2012

• New high power ultrafast amplifier and automated infrared OPO expand market-leading portfolio

Spectra-Physics®, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces two ultrafast laser products at the CLEO 2012 conference, San Jose, CA, May 8-10, 2012. The new Spitfire® Ace™ Power Amplifier is a high power, ultrafast amplifier with advanced performance and guaranteed stability, and the Inspire IR OPO is an infrared ultrafast optical parametric oscillator (OPO). These new products further expand Spectra-Physics’ industry-leading ultrafast lasers portfolio.

“With these new ultrafast laser products, the many recent product introductions, and last year’s acquisition of High Q Lasers, Spectra-Physics continues to extend its leadership position in ultrafast lasers,” said Herman Chui, senior director of product marketing for Spectra-Physics. “As the ultrafast innovation leader, Spectra-Physics now has the broadest range of technologies, serving the widest scope of applications with the industry’s largest installed base in ultrafast lasers.”

The new Spitfire Ace Power Amplifier features industry leading stability with more than twice the output power of the regenerative amplifier only Spitfire Ace, delivering more than 12W output power at 5 / 10 kHz and more than 10W at 1kHz repetition rate. Based on the highly successful Spitfire Ace, the new amplifier sets the standard for long term performance, low noise and day-to-day reproducibility. With the patented XP cavity, the beam quality is excellent, providing M2 < 1.45 even at the highest energy configuration. The Spitfire Ace Power Amplifier is ideal for applications such as multicolor pump-probe spectroscopy, coherent control, nonlinear optics, time-resolved spectroscopy, and more.

The new Inspire™ IR OPO is a fully automated infrared ultrafast OPO for imaging and spectroscopy applications. It tunes gap-free from 1000 to 1600 nm with high power and short pulse widths across the full range. The system’s robust design ensures high stability and insensitivity to ambient temperature change.
