Cobolt AB has released higher-power versions of its Calypso CW diode-pumped solid-state lasers, which are suitable for cell sorting, spinning-disk or line-scanning confocal microscopy, high-throughput bioanalysis and laser Doppler velocimetry. The single-line Calypso laser emits at 491 nm and is available with up to 100 mW of output power. The Dual Calypso emits simultaneously at 491 and 532 nm in one beam and provides up to 50 mW per wavelength. The single-frequency lasers have a typical bandwidth of <30 MHz, rms noise <0.3% and peak-to-peak noise of <3%, beam quality of M2 <1.1 and power consumption of <40 W. They are available with a compact controller for OEM integration and with a CDRH-compliant one for stand-alone use.
