Description

515 nm nanosecond laser is a substitute for Argon lasers in many applications, including sorting, illumination, and pump-probe spectroscopy. It's primarily applications lie in LiDAR, harmonic generation and pumping of ultra-fast lasers.

Other potential applications of this laser are:

  • pumping of Ti:Sapphire lasers
  • supercontinuum generation deep UV generation
  • Raman shift excitation in H2 filled fibers

This an economical nanosecond green laser for industrial environment. Due to small form factor, this laser meets SWAP-C requirements.

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 Break-out-boxes AM-C8 and AM-C3 can be used for conversion of UART communication to either USB or RS232.
4 Excluding control interface pins and an output window/fiber assembly.
5 Whichever occurs first. The laser has an integrated operational hours counter.
