The Panther EX OPO and Panther EX PLUS OPO is the first of a new class of mid band OPOs which have a linewidth of down to less than
2.5 cm-1. The Panther EX OPO is a convenient and high performance alternative to dye lasers. The Panther EX PLUS OPO has similar performance yet allows much higher pump energy from the Surelite III-10 and Powerlite Series lasers.
Panther® EX OPO Features
Signal energies to > 100 mJ per pulse
Linewidths down to < 2.5 cm-1
Complete tunability with no degeneracy gap (205 nm - 2,550 nm)
Excellent beam quality and low divergence in both axes.
Simple Windows® operating platform
The Panther EX OPO uniquely features hermetically sealed, desiccated and temperature stabilized crystal housings throughout for higher reliability and performance. Most Continuum Surelite or Powerlite Nd:YAG laser systems may be used as pump lasers for the Panther EX OPO. The pump laser used may be either injection seeded or non-injection seeded giving the user greater versatility in system configurations.
