ORIGAMI IRO femtosecond optical parametric amplifier system

ORIGAMI IRO is a widely tunable (210 nm to 11 µm), cost-effective femtosecond laser and optical parametric amplifier system with multi-µJ output. Get industry-leading beam pointing stability in a compact air-cooled system that is fully automated and environmentally stable.


  • 8 µJ to 70 µJ energy options
  • Fully air-cooled system
  • 210 nm to 11 µm output (UV, VIS, MIR)
  • Industry-leading beam pointing stability
  • Completely automated and fully computer-controlled
  • Long-life and stable operation with a sealed inner case

Stable, reliable, and alignment-free

The ORIGAMI IRO is air-cooled and constructed with a sealed monolithic case design. Couple it with the industry-leading pointing stability of the ORIGAMI pump laser to get long-term stability and maintenance-free operation.

The integrated 24/7 performance monitoring of both the laser system and ORIGAMI IRO ensures you are always on top of the status of your system


No need for external beam routing or separation: The integrated tuning and automatic wavelength separation of the IRO maintain the same beam position and pointing direction for all wavelengths makes automating experiments simple.

Onboard laser diagnostics and data logging ensure optimal performance and easy troubleshooting. The integrated PC simplifies control in your lab. Use the TCP/IP remote control with the standardized command set for easy programming

Ideal for spectroscopy and material characterization

The ORIGAMI IRO is designed for a diverse range of applications such as optical material & device characterization, femtosecond pump-probe spectroscopy, time-resolved spectroscopy and photoluminescence (TR3, TRPES, TRPL), photoelectron-photoion coincidence spectrometry (PEPICO), coherent anti-stokes Raman spectroscopy (CARS), two-dimensional infrared spectroscopy (2D-IR), terahertz emission studies, and nonlinear microscopy.
