The TOPAS Prime optical parametric amplifier (OPA) is a state-of-the-art instrument for Ti:Sapphire amplifier system wavelength extension. Wavelengths can be generated from the deep UV through the infrared (189–20000 nm) range. The TOPAS Prime is computer controlled which minimizes adjustment time of the laser system and maximizes experimental productivity. TOPAS Prime is the ideal instrument for your scientific application.
• Hands-free operation
• High conversion efficiency
• Up to 5 mJ input energy
• Excellent beam quality
Improved Optical Design
TOPAS Prime utilizes several key features to maximize utility and efficiency. In the visible range, the fresh pump option provides improved beam quality for more efficient sum-frequency conversion. The improved optical design accommodates a larger beam diameter, (~11 mm) which eliminates the need for an external telescope. When higher energy output is needed, the TOPAS Prime Plus can accept input energies up to 5 mJ.
Pump with Solstice Ace and Spitfire Ace Regenerative Amplifiers
The TOPAS Prime works best when pumped using the market leading Solstice Ace and Spitfire Ace regenerative amplifiers. Both amplifiers are equipped with the Spectra-Physics patented Ace regenerative amplifier cavity. This cavity utilizes a normal incidence rod design for an outstanding beam quality with minimal astigmatism. In addition, the Solstice Ace and Spitfire Ace provide market leading stability specifications making TOPAS Prime the perfect tool for performing ultrafast research.
