1 The optical power can be tuned from virtually 0% to 100%. However, other specifications, such as central wavelength, power stability, noise, polarization ratio, beam shape, quality and circularity are not guaranteed at power levels other than factory preset power. Significantly worse power stability is to be expected at very low power levels, e.g. <3% from specified nominal power.

2 The long term power test is carried out at constant laser body temperature (+/-0.1 ‎°C) using an optical power meter with an input bandwidth of 10 Hz. The actual measurement rate has a period of about 20 seconds to 1 minute.

3 Beam width and height are measured at 0.45 m from output aperture.

4 Break-out-boxes AM-C8 and AM-C3 can be used for conversion of UART communication to either USB or RS232.

5 Excluding control interface pins and an output window/fiber assembly.

6 Whichever occurs first. The laser has an integrated operational hours counter.

Photoacoustic imaging

Photoacoustic imaging is a process where powerful laser pulses interact with material by exciting acoustic waves. Similarly, as in ultrasound imaging, the propagating acoustic waves are analyzed by piezo-based detectors (pick-ups), and the complete 3D image is formed by raster scanning or other techniques, such as laser-based holography or interferometry.
