APE picoEmerald S OPO Synchronously Pumped OPO

Concentrate on your experiment, not the light source


The picoEmeraldâ„¢ platform has been the first fully automated tunable picosecond light source in the near infrared with few picosecond pulse width.

The version picoEmeraldâ„¢ S is equipped with a new pump source offering shorter pulses of just 2ps with 10cm-1 spectral width, compared to the original picoEmerald version offering 6ps.

The instrument is based on A·P·E’s long standing experience in building OPOs (optical parametric oscillators) combined with its expertise in electronic control and automation making the picoEmerald™ S an everyday easy to use instrument in biological, medical, or physics labs.

The picoEmeraldâ„¢ S enables the shortest pulses possible for highest signal level while maintaining best spectral resolution in ps Coherent Raman measurements. At the same time, combination with SHG and multiphoton fluorescence measurements as multimodal imaging approach is enhanced by using shorter pulses.

The picoEmerald™ S combines a picosecond OPO and its pump laser incorporated in a single housing with an integrated software control run from a Panel PC with a graphical user interface (GUI). It can be completely remote controlled by a user software or a microscope through a simple RS-232 interface. The optics´ modules are optimised by finite element analysis and mechanical stability algorithms (misalignment sensitivity optimisation) to obtain maximum passive stability of the sealed OPO compartment made in a monolithic design. The RS-232 allows the integration of the picoEmerald™ S into larger software run and controlled experiments. For fast remote diagnostics, the picoEmerald™ S has service capability via the internet using a LAN interface.
