Newport Corporation
: 21 May, 2009  (New Product)
Newport Corporation’s Spectra-Physics(r) Lasers Division introduces the Inspire(tm) Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO), a tunable, ultrafast laser source for advanced imaging and spectroscopy applications.
Optimized for use with the company’s Mai Tai(r) HP ultrafast laser, the Inspire OPO delivers the widest, gap-free ultrafast tuning range in the industry, from the ultraviolet (UV) to the infrared (345 to 2500nm), and the highest power in the UV and visible. Newport’s OPO is fully automated for computer-controlled tuning across the range without adjustment or change of optics.

The Inspire OPO has multiple output ports for simultaneous UV, visible and infrared output, making it ideal for applications that require multiple wavelengths, such as coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) imaging. The OPO delivers an unprecedented >1W of average power from 345-520nm and >400mW from 490-750nm. Additionally, the Inspire OPO provides adjustable pulse widths (from 80 to 350fs). Optimized for high stability, the robust OPO is insensitive to ambient temperature change.

Also being introduced as part of the product family is the Inspire(tm) Blue, an automated frequency doubler for Ti:Sapphire lasers. The Inspire Blue features high UV and blue conversion efficiency and automated tuning.

“We are pleased to offer the Inspire ultrafast OPO with industry-leading performance and user-friendly operation,” notes Herman Chui, Senior Director of Product Marketing for Newport’s Spectra-Physics Lasers Division. He adds, “The wide tuning range and high power enables new applications in multiphoton and CARS imaging, time-resolved spectroscopy and advanced scientific research.”
