OPCPA systems by TRUMPF Scientific Lasers are all pumped by thin-disk based Dira picosecond amplifiers. The broad variety, high reliability and excellent long-term performance of the Dira series allow for numerous OPCPA solutions ranging from µJ to mJ pulse energy and from one kilohertz to a few hundred kilohertz repetition rate, all at high average output power.
Femtosecond laser pulses with only a few cycles of the light field but with extremely high energy are the domain of parametric amplifiers. They represent the next generation of femtosecond laser sources, overcoming the shortcomings of present-day Ti:Sapphire-based amplifier systems. Optical parametric amplifiers have emerged as a powerful tool for generating broadband few-cycle light pulses and are currently the only method to create such pulses at the multi-mJ level.
