Spectra-Physics® Expands Ultrafast Amplifier Portfolio


• Extends offering to high >14 W power and to ultrashort sub-20 femtosecond (fs) pulses at high repetition rates

Santa Clara, CA – Spectra-Physics®, a Newport company, introduces three new ultrafast amplifier products, expanding its portfolio of ultrafast lasers.  The new Spitfire® Ace™ PA (Power Amplifier) features high power of >14 W and high energy of >12 mJ, and the new Spitfire Ace outputs >7 W and >6 mJ with <35 fs pulse width from a regen-only amplifier.  The new Spirit-NOPA™ delivers tunable high-repetition-rate pulses with pulse widths as short as sub-20 fs.  The new products are ideal for ultrafast spectroscopy and advanced science applications.

“These new ultrafast amplifiers are powerful tools to advance and enable new ultrafast science,” says Philippe Féru, senior manager of product marketing for Spectra-Physics. “As the number one supplier of ultrafast lasers, Spectra-Physics delivers the broadest range of technologies to serve the widest scope of applications with the industry’s largest installed base.”

The new Spitfire Ace PA delivers >14 W output power at 5 kHz and more than 12 W at 1 and  10 kHz repetition rates.  The new improved Spitfire Ace regenerative amplifier delivers >7 W at 5 kHz and >6 W at 1 and 10 kHz.  Spectra-Physics’ patented XP cavity provides superior beam quality even at the highest energy configuration.  These ultrafast amplifiers are ideal for a wide range of research applications including multicolor time-resolved spectroscopy, coherent control, nonlinear optics, and more.

Spirit-NOPA is an automated non-collinear optical parametric amplifier specifically optimized for use with Spectra-Physics’ Spirit™ high-repetition-rate ultrafast laser.  Spirit and Spirit-NOPA together create a versatile ultrafast laser system tunable between 250 and 900 nm and capable of generating sub-20 fs pulses with user-adjustable repetition rates from single shot up to 1 MHz.  The advanced system enables a range of new science, allowing fast data averaging and increased signal-to-noise ratios in challenging ultrafast spectroscopy applications.

Spectra-Physics’ new 14 W Spitfire Ace PA, 7 W Spitfire Ace, and Spirit-NOPA will be featured at SPIE Photonics West, Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA, February 4-6, 2014. Please visit Spectra-Physics at booth #1301 for a demonstration. For more information, go to www.spectra-physics.com/Ultrafast.
