APE Angewandte Physik und Elektronik GmbH and High Q Laser have introduced the picoEmerald, a remote-controlled hands-free one-box light source that provides Stokes and pump pulses overlapped in space and time for use in coherent amplified Raman spectroscopy (CARS) applications. The system comprises a 1064-nm picosecond oscillator with a frequency doubler and a synchronously pumped optical parametric oscillator (OPO) in a single housing. The device supplies three temporally and spatially overlapping ultrafast pulse trains: 1064 nm out of the laser oscillator, a 690- to 990-nm signal range and an 1150- to 2300-nm idler range from the OPO. It delivers 7 ps at 1064 nm and 5 to 6 ps from the OPO.
