Compact Integrated Optical-Parametric Oscillator (OPO)

Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corporation brand, has introduced alphaScan, a compact integrated optical-parametric oscillator (OPO) and pump laser that outputs high energies in the near-infrared (NIR) for photoacoustic imaging.
With a rapid-scan option, the system is capable of switching wavelengths in alternating laser pulses for differential measurements, enabling enhanced imaging and signal quality. The system is software controlled and fully automated for simple operation in biological imaging and spectroscopy applications.
The alphaScan delivers >50 mJ of pulse energy in the near infrared, useful for biological applications utilizing the hemoglobin absorption region. The rapid-scan option allows the system to tune up to 100nm between alternating pulses for the simultaneous detection of two distinct markers, or differential absorption measurement of two wavelengths. The system integrates proven, highly reliable technology, including a Spectra-Physics Quanta-Ray laser and green-pumped Scan Series OPO, into a single, compact, and easy-to-use device.
