Cobolt Introduces Ultra-Compact Pulsed Lasers for LIBS & Photoacoustics

Posted Jul 09, 2019 by Cobolt

HUBNER Photonics subsidiary, Cobolt, has introduced a new compact high performance Q-switched laser, the Cobolt Tor XS. The laser has been developed for wavelength 1064nm and 532nm, with 100 uJ/pulse and 50 uJ/pulse respectively.

The laser is intended for photoacoustic microscopy applications as well as integration into hand-held or portable instruments for laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). Using the same sophisticated laser cavity design as its big brother, Cobolt Tor, the Cobolt Tor XS provides a unique combination for its size of kHz repetition rates, short pulse lengths (<3 ns) and exceptional pulse-to-pulse stability.

In addition, the emission is generated in a TEM00 beam and can be externally triggered from single pulse up to 1 kHz whilst all control electronics are fully integrated. The compact footprint of the complete system measures only 50 x 29 x 21.4 mm and weighs <100 g.
