The Laser Quantum Venteon PULSE OPCPA seed laser system represents the ideal front-end for broadband few-cycle OPCPA applications. The spectral bandwidth of this laser allows for the generation of broadband sub-6fs pulses as signal for a subsequent NOPA stage and provides sufficient pulse energy (>30 pJ @ 1030nm) for seeding an Yb-based amplifier pump stage. The pulses are provided by two separate output ports and are intrinsically self-synchronized with ultra-low timing jitter  


Wavelength 800nm (Central)
Spectral FWHM >200nm
Pulse Duration <6fs
Peak/Pulse energy >2.5nJ
Pulse/Repetition Rate 80MHz
Average Power >200mW

Additional Information:

The second output around 1030nm delivers - without any additional broadening - more than 30pJ in a spectral bandwidth of 10nm (FWHM) and is ideally suited as narrowband seed for pump amplifiers. Optionally this output can be ordered pre-amplified, delivering pulses with an energy >1nJ.

Pump-amplifier seed output:

  • Center wavelength: 1030nm
  • Spectral bandwidth: 10nm (FWHM)
  • Pulse duration: <200fs (Fourier-limited)
  • Pulse energy (free-space, 80MHz): >30pJ (>2.4 mW)
  • Pulse energy (fiber-coupled, 80MHz): >12pJ (>1 mW)
  • RMS noise (1h): <0.5%
  • FC/APC fiber port at the laser enclosure for easy seed pick-up
  • Pre-amplified for optimal amplifier seeding (optional)
  • Pulse energy (pre-amplified, fiber-coupled, 80MHz): >1nJ (>80 mW)
