APE is a manufacturer of ultrafast laser diagnostics and systems. Our portfolio includes, but is not limited to, ultrafast test/measurement instruments and wavelength tunable laser systems. APE products are used worldwide in research and industrial applications in markets such as medical imaging, semiconductor and bio-photonics.
Short-pulse diagnostics characterize the many aspects of ultrashort laser pulses. They utilize technologies such as autocorrelation, FROG (Frequency Resolved Optical Gating), SPIDER (Spectral Phase Interferometry for Direct Electric Field Reconstruction) and spectrum analyzers. Wavelength conversion is accomplished with OPO (Optical Parametric Oscillator), OPA (Optical Parametric Amplifier) and harmonics generation systems. Combination of these devices enables a spectral range of <200nm to about 20µm of tunable light. to="" about="" 20µm="" of="" tunable="">200nm to about 20µm of tunable light.>
