The New Focus VAMP series of Tapered Amplifiers are designed to provide up to 2 W of amplified power at a variety of infrared wavelengths. The VAMP will faithfully amplify tunable single-frequency light produced by External Cavity Diode Lasers as well as other light sources of appropriate wavelength.The New Focus engineering team designed reliability and ease of use into the VAMP as well as performance. Fiber-coupling input ensures fast, easy, and reliable alignment. Simply make a secure connection with your FC/APC fiber and that's it - no tweaking. Active input power monitoring insures that self lasing won't damage the tapered amplifier chip. A power lock loop monitors and levels the output power to provide quiet, low-drift output all day long even when your laboratory environment changes. A simple USB driven GUI provides all the control you need.When seeded with a low-ASE source such as the Vortex II or Velocity lasers the VAMP faithfully reproduces the narrow linewidth and high contrast ratio. The VAMP will also accept other seed sources, including many home-made ECDLs.
