Spectra-Physics®, a Newport company, introduces a line of high energy, one-box, ultrafast amplifier products with the industry's highest performance. The new Solstice® Ace™ features high energy of >6 mJ and high power of >7 W with <35 and <120 fs pulse width configurations and 1 to10 kHz capability. The Solstice Ace is built for stable, long-term operation and is tested to rigorous quality standards for high reliability. The new products are ideal for ultrafast spectroscopy and advanced science applications.
“This new line of ultrafast amplifiers deliver new, market-leading levels of performance in a one-box form factor to propel new ultrafast science,” says Herman Chui, senior director of product marketing for Spectra-Physics. “With our industry-leading Spitfire® Ace ultrafast amplifiers, this introduction reinforces Spectra-Physics number one position in ultrafast lasers serving applications in research, bio-imaging, medical and micromachining.”
The new Solstice Ace regenerative amplifier outputs >6 mJ pulse energy at 1 kHz, >7 W output power at 5 kHz and >6 W at 10 kHz repetition rate with pulse width configurations of <35 fs and <120 fs. Subjected to rigorous quality standards and reliability tests, Solstice Ace demonstrates long-term performance, low noise, and day-to-day reproducibility. Long-term stability is guaranteed over a 10°C temperature range to ensure reliable data collection. Spectra-Physics’ patented XP cavity provides superior beam quality and stability for driving optical parameter amplifier (OPA) systems with M2 <1.25.
