Aurora CEP ultrafast laser system from Amplitude, San Jose, CA

To address the needs of customers based in the North American region, the large-scale high peak power femtoscend lasers, traditionally manufactured at the company’s site in Paris, are now also produced at the company’s 52,000 sq. ft. facility in San Jose, CA, using Continuum DPSS lasers as pump sources.


The first U.S.-built Aurora CEP laser system is the ultimate tool designed for strong field laser-matter interaction. In the short pulse mode, the laser’s pulse duration is less than 20 fs FWHM, while in the tunable mode, the central wavelength can be tuned continuously within 100 nm window with a simple adjustment of the Control Command software. Aurora CEP produces ultrafast laser pulses at 10 kHz repetition rate with pulse energy greater than 500 μJ. Thanks to the CEP (Carrier Envelop Phase) stabilization loop, the laser achieves stability better than 250 mrad.

This high performance laser is used for nonlinear optical excitation such as High Harmonic Generation, four-wave mixing, and parametric processes. Such techniques give access to a broad range of wavelengths from the VUV to IR, with femtosecond or attosecond time resolution, enhancing the capabilities of pump-probe spectroscopy methods for probing atoms, molecules and even surfaces on an ultrashort time scale.
