New Ultrafast Source for Broadband Mid-IR Pulses

ORPHEUS-MIR is a versatile system optimized for the efficient generation of broadband, mid-IR pulses from Light Conversion. In general, it is a two-channel optical parametric amplifier (OPA), followed by a difference frequency generation (DFG) stage. The system provides broadband pulses in the tuning range of 2500–11,000 nm, and reaches up to 15 µm with optional narrowband extension. … Continue reading
