The New Focus™ VAMP series Tapered Amplifiers is your solution for high-power tunable and fixed-wavelength applications such as atomic cooling, spectroscopy, and Bose-Einstein Condensation. The VAMP will faithfully amplify tunable single-frequency light produced by External Cavity Diode Lasers as well as other light sources of appropriate wavelength. All New Focus tapered amplifiers include an isolator on the output as standard.

The VAMP is configured with a fiber coupled input, ensuring fast, easy and reliable alignment. Active input power monitoring triggers a safety shutoff when the seed power drops below 10 mW, preventing self-lasing and protecting the lifetime of the tapered amplifier chip.
Simple intuitive control with the TA-7600-LN controller means you are up and running immediately. The TA-7600-LN controller comes standard with tapered amplifier head recognition to automatically set the temperature and current upper limit. It also features front panel control, RS-232 and USB interfaces, and an intuitive GUI.
To verify and analyze the output power of your VAMP laser, we recommend the Ophir 3A-PF-12 (7Z02720) 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 VAMP, depending on application. Ophir also works with laser system developers to achieve embedded beam diagnostics to monitor system performance as an OEM solution.
