Polished Tsurupica Lenses

Tsurupica is highly transparent in THz and visible spectral ranges (see transmission spectra  below).

Refractive index of Tsurupica is the same for THz and visible light (n=1.52).

It withstands optical polishing.

Ordering Information:

Model Lens Type External Diameter/
Clear Aperture
Focal Length
PTL-1.5″-50mm-AS Plano-convex, aspheric 1.5″ / 30 mm 50 mm
PTL-1.5″-100mm-AS Plano-convex, aspheric 1.5″ / 30 mm 100 mm
PTL-2″ -50mm-BC Bi-convex, spherical 2″ / 45 mm 50 mm
PTL-2″-100mm-BC Bi-convex, spherical 2″ / 45 mm 100 mm
PTL-2″-180mm Plano-convex, spherical 2″ / 45 mm 180 mm
PTL-1.5″-XXXmm Plano-convex, spherical 1.5″ / 30 mm Any > 30 mm
PTL-2″-XXXmm Plano-convex, spherical 2″ / 45 mm Any > 50 mm

The transmission spectra were measured for 2 mm thick slabs which corresponds to an average thickness of a lens (50 mm diameter, 100 mm focal length).

Polished Tsurupica Windows

Apart from high transparency in THz and visible spectral ranges, Tsurupica is also very strong mechanically. Thin Tsurupica windows can be used in cryostats, gas cells or any other systems operating at high pressure.

Ordering Information:

Model Diameter / Thickness
PTW-1″ -3mm 1″ (25.4 mm) / 3 mm
PTW-1.5″-4mm 1.5″ (38.1 mm) / 4 mm
PTW-2″-4mm 2″ (50 mm) / 4 mm

QS2-180 Based Sources

QS2-180 Based Sources

Operating frequency range of QS2-180 (100-180 GHz) can be extended to 1500 GHz, using frequency multipliers.

Typical maximum power across different ranges is shown in the table below.

QS2-180
QS2-350
QS2-500
QS2-1000
QS2-1500
QS2-1500-HP
Notes: Operation of QS2-180 based sources requires VR-3M power supply.

Notes: Operation of QS1-370 based sources requires VR-6M power supply, MS-X.X magnetic system and BWO water cooling system.

Terahertz Parametric Oscillators

Terahertz Parametric Oscillators (TPOs)

The TPO systems are based on difference frequency generation in quasi-phase matched GaAS crystals placed inside an optical parametric oscillator (OPO) pumped by an ultrafast fiber laser. It generates 6-10 ps THz pulses at repetition rate of 80 MHz, delivering up to 1 mW average power and 1.5 W peak power. Central wavelength of 0.85 or 1.5 THz and spectral width of 100 GHz fits perfectly into the atmospheric transmission windows, making these sources ideal for THz imaging application. Very high peak powers make the TPO suitable for imaging systems employing non-linear effects, while sufficient average power makes it suitable for thermal detector array imaging as well.

MODEL CENTRAL FREQUENCY SPECTRAL WIDTH DURATION AVERAGE POWER PEAK POWER
TPO-850 0.85 THz <200 GHz 8+ 2ps 100uW 150 mW
TPO-1500 1.5 THz <200 GHz 8+ 2ps 100uW 150 mW
TPO-1500 HP 1.5 THz <200 GHz 8+ 2ps 1mW 1.5W
