APE Levante IR Synchronously Pumped OPO

Tunable automated ps or fs OPO suitable for an external IR pump laser


The Levante IR is a synchronously pumped OPO (optical parametric oscillator) in a innovative new design. The pump source is a mode-locked laser emitting at 1um fixed.  The generation of the Signal and Idler pulses in a parametric process is jitter-free with respect to each other as well as to the pump pulse.



  • Two models available: picosecond or femtosecond
  • Fully controllable via PC and automated wavelength tuning
  • Perfectly synchronised output pulses
  • Standard software interface (using TCP/IP)
  • Integrated spectrometer for OPO Signal wavelength range

The accessible wavelength range for the Signal output is 1320 - 2000nm and the wavelength range for the Idler output (optional) is 2150 - 4700nm. The wavelength tuning itself is now fully automated.


An OPO is especially suited for power scaling because it uses a parametric process for operation – compared to a laser process with intrinsic heating due to the quantum defect – where there is no intrinsic heat generated by the parametric process in an OPO.


All models come with an easy to use data acquisition software, allowing for real-time data display. Furthermore, the TCP/IP-based standard software interface by APE makes it straight forward to set up remote control. This allows you, for example, to design your own automated measurement routines. Simply use our protocol templates for rapid configuration with familiar programming languages, including C++, C#, LabVIEW, Python, Matlab, and Ruby.
