Q-Shift Series - Diode-pumped Lasers with Integrated Wavelength Converter

Q-Shift laser series offers wavelengths that are not accessible by any common solid state laser. Q2 and Q2-HE with 1053 or 1064 nm are used as integrated pump laser. Based on these wavelengths, emissions at 1163/1177, 1300/1317 or 1551/1571 nm are generated using nonlinear conversion. Optionally, a harmonic generator for up to 4th harmonics can be added.

Description 

Features

  • Up to 50 mJ pulse energy, up to 1 W average power.
  • Up to 100 Hz pulse repetition rate.
  • Air cooled (water-free).
  • 2-5 ns pulse duration.
  • > 2 G shot lifetime of pump diodes.
  • Sync pulses for triggering of user equipment.
  • Remote monitoring and control via built-in Ethernet interface.
  • Optional attachable attenuator for fundamental wavelength.
  • Optional stand-alone 2nd, 3rd, 4th harmonic generator.
  • Optional stand-alone pulse generator for variable pulse repetition rate.

Applications

  • LCD repair
  • Laser dermatology
  • Eye-safe LiDAR
  • Laser ablation
  • Time-resolved spectroscopy
  • Light Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)

 

Q-SHIFT is family of Q-switched lasers with build-in nonlinear wavelength conversion stage that allows to produce wavelengths that are not accessible with conventional solid-state laser sources. As pump sources our Nd:YAG or Nd:YLF lasers of Q2 or Q2HE series are used. High peak intensity pulses at visible wavelengths (blue, yellow and red) are provided when Q-SHIFT laser is combined with our attachable SHG or stand-alone H-SMART harmonic generator.

Laser functionality can be further extended by wide range of auxiliary equipment:

  • Attachable second harmonic generator, model SHG.
  • Stand-alone up to fifth harmonic generators of H-SMART series.
  • Attachable motorized attenuator for fundamental wavelength.
  • Attachable pulse energy monitor with analog and/or digital output.
  • Stand-alone two-channel pulse generator for smoothly variable pulse repetition rate, burst, double-pulse and other user-configurable modes of operation.
