Microchip Lasers

The 532nm and 1064nm Sub-nanosecond Lasers (Microchip Lasers) are based on a passively Q-switched DPSS laser with pulse length of only a few hundred picoseconds. The high pulse energy and excellent beam quality make them an ideal source for industrial and scientific applications such as Raman spectroscopy, Mass spectrograph, LIBS – Atmospheric detection / Air Monitoring, LIDAR / Laser Ranging, LIPS – Seed Laser, LIMS – Optical Metrology and Non-linear optical measurement.

The pump diode module is integrated in the power supply. These lasers can be operated from external or internal trigger.

Key Features:

  • Pulse width <1ns (Min<300ps)
  • Pulse energy 3 – 350uJ (Max>2mJ)
  • Average power up to 300mW
  • Internal and external trigger mode (repetition rate less than 10kHz)
  • High repetition rate up to 50 kHz
