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. Signal and idler outputs are available simultaneously, but they are a signal-idler pair; thus, their wavelengths are linked. The system architecture is ideal for the high energy and high power PHAROS and CARBIDE lasers.
Features of the ORPHEUS-MIR:
- Broad bandwidth up to 500 cm-1
- Broad tuning range 2500 nm – 11,000 nm
- Short pulse duration < 100 fs
- Up to 40 W pump power
- Up to 2 mJ pump energy
- Auxiliary broadband output at ~2000 nm
- Optional narrowband extension up to 15,000 nm
- Optional CEP stability
Intense ultrashort broadband pulses in mid-IR perfectly suit a number of scientific applications, including:
- Broadband vibrational sum-frequency generation (SFG) spectroscopy
- Time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (TR-ARPES)
- Two-dimensional infrared (2D IR) spectroscopy
- High-harmonic generation (HHG) in solids
- Other infrared spectroscopy and strong-field physics applications
