Harmony: Optical Parametric Amplifier

Find harmony in four perfectly synchronised and precisely tunable wavelength outputs produced by Fluence Harmony Optical Parametric Amplifier (OPA).

Fluence Harmony is a device that precisely converts ultrafast pulses of one band (e.g. 1030 nm pulses coming from Fluence Jasper) into a set of pulsed laser beams tunable in an extremely broad spectrum of wavelengths, ranging from 210 nm up to 2600 nm. All automated, all software-controlled.

Growing number of ultrafast spectroscopy techniques has prompted the need for a robust and reliable, self-diagnostic device like Harmony. The Optical Parametric Amplifier is fully compatible with all femtosecond lasers and provides automated tuning across the basic tuning range.

Performance and tuning

Output Tuning range Conversion efficiency**
Signal and idler 630 – 1020 nm and 1040 – 2600 nm > 5% across tuning range, 12% at peak of tuning range
SH of signal and idler 315 – 510 nm and 520 – 630 nm > 2% at peak of tuning range
FH of signal and idler 210 – 250 nm and 260 – 310 nm > 0.5% at peak of tuning range
FH of pump beam fixed 257 ± 2 nm > 5%***
* – for signal and idler
** – combined signal and idler with respect to input pump laser average power at 200 kHz. SH – second harmonic, TH – third harmonic, FH – fourth harmonic
*** – BOL – beginning of lifetime

We are more than happy to customise this product for you and add some special features that you require. Do you prefer to have the third harmonic or different polarisation? Just get in touch and let us know.
