Unison ultrafast amplifier

Newport Corporation's Spectra-Physics Lasers division has introduced the first ultrafast amplifier system with optimised dual outputs for simultaneous high-energy and time-resolved experiments. The Unison amplifier is a single system that delivers femtosecond pulses at both terawatt-class intensities at 10Hz frequency and mJ energies in the kHz frequency regime. The entire system is manufactured by Spectra-Physics, ensuring compatibility and a single point of contact for service and support.

The amplifier system features excellent pulse-energy stability and TEM00 spatial mode for high quality experimental results. The system's modular design provides a versatile system that can be easily configured for user-specific requirements. Existing Newport Spitfire ultrafast amplifier systems can also be upgraded to Unison amplifier systems.

The amplifier system is suitable for applications such as high-energy VUV spectroscopy, higher order harmonic generation, multi-photon and above-threshold ionisation, time-resolved spectroscopy experiments, coherent anti-Stokes Raman spectroscopy, and THz generation.
