The Gigashot HE from Northrop Grumman is a high energy, short pulse diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) Nd: YAG laser system. The laser is specified to deliver 4 J at 1064 nm and more than 2 J at 532 nm. The high efficiency, ultra-long life quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) pump diodes allow the laser to operate for many billions of shots. The laser uses a Master Oscillator-Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration to obtain a near field flat-top beam profile
The Gigashot laser has long-life laser diode bars and is ideally suited for use in scientific, industrial, and medical applications. The laser is supplied with a 2 year/10,000 operating hour diode warranty.
