It uses a mid-infrared optical parametric oscillator
(OPO) with an integrated DPSS pump laser as an illumination source.
In February, Toptica's optical parametric oscillator
(OPO) laser system won a Prism Award at Photonics West in San Francisco.

The singly resonant optical parametric oscillator
(SR-OPO), whose only one wave is in resonance within the optical cavity, is more stable and of higher maximum output power than the doubly resonant OPO (DR-OPO).

In response to these dilemmas the MIR laser was designed with an ultra-stable, single longitudinal mode resonator coupled to a SOPO (Stable Optical Parametric Oscillator
Among them, degenerate femtosecond optical parametric oscillator
(OPO) can clearly transpose near-IR frequency combs to the mid-IR, for example, transfer the properties of a frequency comb based on commercial Yb laser to the 2 [micro]m wavelength range.
The optical parametric oscillator
converts laser beam output to a range of wavelengths from the UM to the IR.
