Tapered amplifiers have a 20 year long history at TOPTICA. In the beginning with the TA 100, then the TA pro in much advanced pro technology: a stable DL pro master laser, new chip mount with improved mechanical and thermal stability, specifically designed ultra-stable mirror mounts, and a stable housing machined from a solid metal block.
The next evolution step was the introduction of the completely digital DLC pro controller – low noise, total remote control, higher powers with up to 10 A driving current, at the same time even narrower linewidth and less drift. And now a rack-mounted version is available as MTA pro.
High power up to 4 W at 780 nm and 860 nm
In parallel, TA chips have improved substantially over time. The available spectrum widened, output powers increased. The main TA chip provider, TOPTICA eagleyard, continues to improve designs and further raise output power levels continuously. Latest examples: a new chip centered at 890nm (872 – 912nm) now with up to 3.5 W output power, and record TA output powers at important wavelengths: 4 W @780nm and 860nm.
Particularly suitable for atom cooling and quantum simulations
TA pro is ideally suited for atom and ion cooling with its high power, narrow linewidth and low noise operation. Also quantum simulations with large numbers of atoms and Rydberg atoms benefit from its properties.
Photo contest: 20 years amplified @TOPTICA, 10 years TA pro
To celebrate, scientists are asked to send us their greatest pictures with TOPTICA lasers in the lab. An independent jury will reward the best picture with the TOPTICA Photo Contest Prize, a pair of Sony Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones: www.toptica.com/photo-contest

Tapered amplifier diodes amplify laser radiation into a nearly diffraction limited beam to powers that would destroy the facets of normal laser diodes. At the same time the spectral properties of the master laser are preserved.
TOPTICA eagleyard manufactures tapered amplifier chips between 650nm and 985nm with high brightness. Output powers from 250mW to 3000mW are available.
TOPTICA Photonics integrates tapered amplifiers into convenient laser and amplifier systems (TA pro and BoosTA pro).
TOPTICA has been developing and manufacturing high-end laser systems for scientific and industrial applications for 20 years. Our portfolio includes diode lasers, ultrafast fiber lasers, terahertz systems and frequency combs. The systems are used for demanding applications in biophotonics, industrial metrology and quantum technology. TOPTICA is renowned for providing the widest wavelength coverage of diode lasers on the market, providing high-power lasers even at exotic wavelengths.
TOPTICA’s employees take pride in developing customized systems. In close collaboration with several universities and institutes, latest scientific discoveries are frequently incorporated into commercial products. With a global distribution network, TOPTICA provides exceptional service worldwide. With 340 employees TOPTICA earned revenue of 76 million Euro.
