Features

The Inspire Offers

  • User-friendly gap-free tuning from 345 nm to 2.5 µm.
  • Five output ports available: signal output (490-750 nm), idler output (930-2500 nm), fundamental output (690-1040 nm), and doubled fundamental output (345-520 nm).
  • Simultaneous output from either two or three output ports—ideal for applications requiring more than one wavelength such as CARS and SRS imaging.
  • HF version with fully-automated hands-free wavelength tuning complete with automated cavity alignment to maintain optimal power and pulse durations.
  • Auto version with semi-automated tuning and nearly transform-limited pulse duration flexibility (80-350 fs) for tailoring pulse widths to match experimental conditions.

With its unprecedented gap-free wavelength coverage with the Inspire is the next-generation OPO for cutting-edge imaging and spectroscopy applications.
