Waveguard Series - Diode-pumped, Passively Q-switched Subnanosecond Lasers

The lasers of the Waveguard series stand out by their excellent parameters: up to 400 µJ, repetition rates up to 10 kHz and pulse durations of <1 ns. The extremly compact, diode-pumped Nd:YAG laser with 1064 or 532 nm is suited for applications such as material processing, LIBS (light induced breakdown spectroscopy), LIDAR (light detection and ranging) or laser marking.

Description 

Features

  • Robust and compact design
  • Internal and external TTL triggering
  • Laser controller with USB or RS232 interface
  • OEM version available
  • Optional: adjustable pulse repetition rate

Applications

  • Material processing & micromachining
  • LIBS
  • Marking
  • LIDAR & Laser Ranging
  • Biophotonics

 

The typical configuration of these lasers is based on a Nd:YAG crystal placed in a cavity of a few millimeters in length, leading to a very compact laser design with a surprising performance, such as sub-nanosecond pulse widths and a peak power of several tens of kilowatts. State-of-the-art robust laser design allows it to be easily integrated into various laser applications and setups. Additional harmonics modules for 532 nm, 355 nm, or 266 nm wavelengths are available on request for all models. “Waveguard” series lasers off er wavelength stabilization possibility up to 3 pm and laser modules with a photodiode to control pulse repetition rate are available on request for all models. Optional: adjustable pulse repetition rate.
