Quantum Composers Introduce New Mid-Infrared lasers

Posted  by GoPhotonics Quantum Composers, Inc.

Quantum Composers unveiled their mid-infrared laser that features a new SOPO (Stable Optical Parametric Oscillator) technology. The MIR Lasers are in production and will be displayed at the upcoming World of Photonics tradeshow in Munich. The Mid-IR Laser was created in partnership with Bridger Photonics Lasers and features a small form factor combined with robust components to create a laser with high output energy and reduced shot-to-shot energy jitter.712370

As medical and material based studies get more precise, labs are faced with the problem of insuring precise control of delivered energy to avoid damaged samples and noisy results. In response to these dilemmas the MIR laser was designed with a stable, single longitudinal mode resonator coupled to a SOPO (Stable Optical Parametric Oscillator). The diode pumped, single-mode operation enables low pulse-to-pulse fluctuations, with good beam pointing stability. Typical shot-to-shot energy fluctuation is less than 0.5% RMS of the mean pulse energy. This advance will benefit many medical applications, LIDAR, LIBS and other spectroscopy projects where energy and output stability are crucial.
As compared to other Mid-Range Infrared lasers, the new MIR is compact, robust and affordable. The MIR Series Mid-Infrared Laser delivers >1 mJ, <10 ns laser pulses with factory-selectable infrared wavelengths from 1.5 microns to 4 microns. It offers software-selectable output pulse energies in a compact and robust package. The system is diode pumped, which eliminates the need for scheduled maintenance and water cooling. These features facilitate hassle-free integration into laboratory experiments, or for use as an OEM unit. This laser will also be used for LIDAR, PIV, medical, ablation, and mass spectroscopy applications.
