The Q-SHIFT from Quantum Light Instruments is a Diode Pumped, Air-Cooled, Q-Switched Laser that operates at wavelengths of 1163 and 1177 nm. It delivers an average output power of 1 W and produces pulse energy of up to 50 mJ. This linearly polarised laser has a repetition rate of up to 100 Hz and a pulse duration from 2-5 ns. It has an in-built nonlinear wavelength conversion stage setup that produces wavelengths that are not accessible with conventional solid-state laser sources. The laser requires an AC supply from 90-230 V for operation and can be remotely monitored and control via an Ethernet interface. It is ideal for laser micro-machining (LCD repair), laser dermatology (facial renewal, hair removal, and acne treatment), eye-safe Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR), laser ablation/cleaning, time-resolved laser spectroscopy, and light Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) applications.
