A tunable one-box Mai Tai BB Ti:sapphire oscillator (Newport Spectra-Physics) is used to seed a ~130fs Ti:sapphire regenerative amplifier (Coherent: Spitfire-HPR upgraded with Legend Elite HE-F optics) pumped by an Evolution-30 solid-state Nd:YLF laser (Positive Light). This amplifier is used to pump two UV_visible non-collinear Optical Parametric Amplifiers (Light Conversion: TOPAS- White) and an IR-configured white light-seeded Optical Parametric Amplifier (Coherent: OPerA Solo).
