The next generation ultrafast amplifier

The venteon OPCPA is an exceptional ultrafast amplifier, which delivers few-cycle, multi-µJ level pulses without additional nonlinear compression. As industry experts in ultrafast technology, we have created the only commercial ultrafast amplifier on the market that combines unique few-cycle pulse duration <8 fs, µJ level energy and a high repetition rate of up to 4 [...]

OPCPA – An explanation and an animation

Laser pulse amplification has for a long time relied upon multi-pass concepts through inverted gain media with limited bandwidth. This concept allows high energy pulses, but due to band narrowing effects and thermal load, the pulses have a long duration and low repetition rates. Optical parametric chirped pulsed amplification has the advantage of a single [...]

Quantitative analysis of gases

Raman spectroscopy is a powerful technique with numerous analytical applications. Our recent whitepaper ‘Quantitative laser Raman spectroscopy of gases’, looks at how Raman systems can be used to measure gas mixture compositions with high measurement precision, sensitivity and trueness. It discusses how the gem 532, finesse 532 and opus 532 can be used as the [...]

Product of the month: venteon OPCPA

The first commercial Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifier (OPCPA) system provides a unique combination of a few-cycle pulse duration of <8 fs, with energy in the µJ-regime at a high repetition rate of 200 kHz or higher. The excellent output stability and the ability for CEP stabilisation turns this amplifier system into the ideal source [...]

Stimulated Raman scattering in laser technology

Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) is a third-order nonlinear optical effect that is used in laser technology either to shift the wavelength emission of a laser (‘Raman laser’) or to provide optical amplification of an input beam (‘Raman amplifier’). Since the early 2000s, Raman amplifiers have been widely used in optical fibres for telecom applications, such [...]

Using the ventus in Laser Tweezers Raman Spectroscopy (LTRS)

Unfortunately, one in two people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. Typical large-scale analysis of cancer cells means individual cell attributes are averaged and, therefore, single cell detection is of real interest. The current process involves individual analysis of manually trapped cells which is [...]
