Manufactured by Arctic Photonics, the MQO-SC is a compact monolithic supercontinuum short-pulsed laser that emits from 750 to >1750 nm. It can generate pulse energy of >3 μJ at 20 kHz or less with a 2- to 3-ns pulse width. Features include drive electronics, variable repetition rates and a fiber-coupled output. The laser is based on a hermetically sealed design with telecom-grade packaging. Output is via standard single-mode fiber with or without a fiber connector. The TEM00 laser beam has an M2 value of <1.1. Applications include component and network measurement, spectroscopy and bioinstrumentation.
