Spitfire Ace High Performance Ti:Sapphire Regenerative Amplifiers

Key Features

  • Revolutionary Ace regenerative cavity design
  • More than 16 W of output power
  • Superior mode quality (M2 <1.3)
  • Digital synchronization electronics


The Spectra-Physics Spitfire® Ace™ is our flagship amplifier system. It is the most technically advanced Ti:Sapphire regenerative amplifier commercially available. Equipped with our proprietary Ace cavity design, the Spitfire Ace provides guaranteed long term performance, low noise and reliable day-to-day operation resulting in consistent OPA performance and nonlinear wavelength conversion for use in the most demanding ultrafast applications.

The Spitfire Ace amplifier builds upon our highly successful Spitfire platform. Every component has been carefully evaluated and selected to maximize stability. The Spitfire Ace regenerative amplifier produces an industry leading average power of more than 7 W at 1 kHz and 10 kHz, and 8 W at 5 kHz with excellent beam quality.

The Spitfire Ace PA (Power Amplifier) builds upon this highly successful platform by offering even higher energy and output power. The Spitfire Ace PA system produces more than twice the average power of the regen-only Spitfire Ace. The system offers up to >16 W average power. Thanks to the patented Ace cavity, the beam quality is excellent providing M2 <1.45 even at the highest energy configuration.

The Spitfire Ace performs optimally when seeded using the revolutionary Mai Tai® SP oscillator. This laser is a truly hands-free system, eliminating the need for re-alignment, cleaning or adjustments of any kind. The Mai Tai SP performance specifications are guaranteed over an impressive 20°C temperature range.

The Spitfire Ace amplifier system is pumped with the new Ascend high power DPSS green laser, which can deliver over 60 W of average power. For highest power, the Spitfire Ace PA system is pumped using an additional Ascend laser. The combination delivers more than 120 W of average power. The low noise, DPSS design means high reliability and high performance.
