Footnotes:

  1. Due to our continuous product improvement program, specifications are subject to change without notice.
  2. When pumped with 40 µJ at 1040 nm. For other pump levels, please contact Spectra-Physics.
  3. Compressors for signal and/or idler are options.
  4. Spirit-NOPA pump parameters are determined at the time of order and are set at the factory.
  5. Spirit-NOPA is factory optimized for one pump pulse energy only.
