eagleyard Photonics’ TPA series of tapered amplifiers (TPA) are semiconductor optical amplifiers combining excellent beam quality with highest output power from a single emitter. Their monolithic design comprises a single mode ridge waveguide section with a tapered structure. These components are the first choice for master oscillator power amplifier setups, inheriting all spectral properties of a seed source such as a DFB laser or an ECDL built with a gain chip.
Tapered Amplifiers are improving poor signal to noise ratios wherever generating spectral and beam profile properties comes at the price of an attenuated power level. They are of great help in gathering deepest knowledge about hidden processes not only in the micro-world. They are enabling the realization of complex scientific equipment.
