APL210x series amplifiers are designed to produce up to 2200 mJ picosecond pulses. High pulse energy, excellent pulse-to-pulse energy stability, superior beam quality makes APL210x series picosecond amplifiers well suited for applications like OPCPA pumping, non-linear optics and others. Ekspla can offer a seeder meeting customer’s requirements.
APL210x series amplifiers are designed to be seeded by external seeding source. Diode pumped regenerative amplifier ensures amplification of seed signal to stable mJ level pulse for amplification in linear amplifiers. Advanced beam shaping ensures smooth, without hot spots beam spatial profile at the laser output. Low light depolarization level allows high efficiency generation of up to 4th harmonic with optional build-in harmonic generators.
Angle-tuned DKDP crystals harmonic generators mounted in temperature stabilized heaters are used for second, third and fourth harmonic generation. Harmonic separation system is designed to ensure high spectral purity of radiation and direct it to the output ports.
For customer convenience the amplifier can be controlled through remote control pad or USB interface. The control pad features a backlit display that is easy to read even while wearing laser safety eyewear. Alternatively, the amplifier can be controlled from personal computer with supplied software for Windows™ operating system. LabVIEW™ drivers are supplied as well.
