The fully integrated Horizon OPO System from Amplitude-Continuum can be pumped with various well-known Surelite or Powerlite Nd:YAG lasers at 355 nm with pump energies of up to 385 mJ. The signal wave ranges from 400 - 710 nm and the idle wave from 710 - 2750 nm.

Depending on the pump laser used, the maximum signal wave of the Horizon can reach up to 135 mJ. The line width of the signal wave is typically 3-9 cm-1

With the integrated option SHG/SFG, the wavelength range can be extended to 192 – 400 nm, here the line widths are < 10 cm-1.

It is operated via high-precision motors via PC. This ensures high stability and good reproducibility of the wavelengths. About the high beam quality of the well-known continuum The good output beam quality of the Horizon is also determined by the pump laser, as well as safe operation.
