Cobolt AB has announced that its Cobolt Fandango 515-nm diode-pumped solid-state laser is now available with up to 100 mW of continuous-wave output power. Suitable for use in confocal microscopy, high-speed plate reading and single-molecule analysis, it also is an alternative to bulky argon gas lasers. Built into a hermetically sealed package measuring 50 × 50 mm, it uses proprietary HTCure technology for robustness. The single-longitudinal-mode laser produces noise of <0.3% rms and delivers a spectral linewidth of <30 MHz and beam quality of M2 <1.1. It can withstand 60-g mechanical shocks and can be exposed to temperatures >100 °C.
