  1. Due to our continuous improvement program, specifications may change without notice.
  2. Specifications while pumped by a Mai Tai HP; average power is reduced when pumping with the Mai Tai HP DeepSee.
  3. Idler output available as an option.


  • Two output ports available: signal output (1000–1550 nm with >900 mW at the peak) and fundamental output (690–1040 nm with >1 W)
  • Synchronized output from two output ports—ideal for applications requiring more than one wavelength such as CARS
  • Fully-automated hands-free wavelength tuning complete with automated cavity alignment to maintain optimal power and pulse durations

Compatible Power Sensors

To verify and analyze the output power of your Inspire IR 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 IR, depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
