Novel Nonlinear Technology

Based on novel nonlinear technology, the Inspire Blue doubler provides exceptional beam quality, high conversion efficiency and reduced pulse broadening. The unit is available in both manual and automated versions and is compatible with the Spectra-Physics Mai Tai® HP femtosecond output as well as the Spectra-Physics Tsunami® HP femtosecond and picosecond outputs.

Synchronized Outputs

The Inspire Blue doubler also features synchronized outputs–the converted output in the near-UV and visible wavelength range (345–520 nm) and the unconverted fundamental output in the IR range (690–1040 nm)–enabling use of both beams in simultaneous experiments. Complete wavelength coverage is achieved with a single optics set to increase flexibility.

Doubling Unit

The Inspire Blue doubling unit is an excellent tool for a wide range of applications requiring femtosecond light pulses at MHz repetition rates.

Compatible Power Sensors

To verify and analyze the output power of your Inspire Blue laser, we recommend the Ophir 3A  (7Z02621) thermal power sensor and Centauri laser power meter.  Additional information on this laser measurement equipment can be found on the ophiropt.com website.  Other Ophir sensors and meters may also be suitable for the Inspire Blue , depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
