Opera-F and Opera-HP for Monaco

Optical Parametric Amplifiers for Yb Systems

Opera-F

The Opera-F is an optical parametric amplifier (OPA) that extends the performance of Coherent’s Monaco amplifier. Opera-F delivers a broad tuning range, 650 nm to 900 nm and 1200 nm to 2500 nm. Pumped by 60 W at 4 MHz from a Monaco amplifier, Opera-F can deliver >6W signal + idler. The performance provided by the Opera-F pumped by a Monaco is a powerful tool delivering high powers at high repetition rates for demanding experiments.

Opera-HP

The Opera-HP is an optical parametric amplifier (OPA) used to extend the performance of Coherent’s Monaco amplifier. Opera-HP is a white light seeded two stage collinear OPA, delivering <300 fs pulses. Associated wavelength extension packages offer a broad tuning range covering 210 nm to 16 μm. Outputs from the UV to Near-IR (210 nm to 2600 nm) are delivered via hands-free, computer-controlled, automated tuning and wavelength selection ensuring the same position and direction.

Pumped by 60W at 1 MHz from a Monaco amplifier, Opera-HP can deliver >6W signal + idler at the peak. The high power, high repetition rate capabilities of the Opera-HP pumped by a Monaco is a powerful tool delivering high energies a high repetition rates for demanding experiments.
