Distributor Altos Photonics announced that Standa has introduced a subnanosecond DPSS (diode-pumped solid-state) microlaser. High peak powers (up to 16 kW) with subnanosecond pulse lengths or high repetition rates (up to 100 kHz) are available. These highly reliable solid-state lasers consist of a power supply unit and laser head. The power supply unit includes a laser diode (LD) driver, fiber-pigtailed LD and internal pulse generator. The laser repetition rate can be operated in three different modes and changed from single pulse to maximum repetition rate in either pulsed LD pumping mode. A first harmonic model (1062 nm) and second harmonic model (531 nm), and a continuous wave output model (1062 nm) are available.
