APE OPO-X fs or ps Tunable OPO

Tunable automated OPO suitable for Ti:S laser



OPO-X is a synchronously pumped widely tunable optical parametric oscillator (OPO) for fs or ps Ti:Sapphire laser pumping, covering the wavelength range from 505 … 4000 nm. It is fully automated, i.e. software controlled tuning over the full specified wavelength range. This is made possible by its new control electronics, internal diagnostics, and Control Software packaged conveniently in a new housing.



  • Suitable for Mira / Mira HP / Chameleon Ultra II / Chameleon Vision II
  • Independent Pump- and Signal tuning
  • Fully automated tuning
  • Windows-based Control Software included
  • Jitter-free generation of pulses
  • Standard Software interface (using TCP/IP)

All versions of the OPO-X system can be operated in both femto- and picosecond mode (depending on the pump), by simple exchanging a few optical elements.


OPO-X is based on a FAN crystal, which enables a large flexibility. The OPO wavelength can be tuned independently of the pump wavelength, accepting to be pumped from 740 … 880 nm. This enables a maximum flexibility of simultaneous available wavelengths for the experiment.


OPO-X can be provided with several options and modifications

  • Output of Idler beam (in addition to output of Signal beam)
  • Depleted pump output (not in combination with Idler)
  • Customised wavelength ranges
  • Adaption to various pump laser cavity lengths and pump pulse width
  • Difference Freqnecy Generation for MIR generation up to 15µm
  • Simultaneous access to IR and VIS output
