UITGEEST, Netherlands, Oct. 12, 2010 — The Pulse is a high-speed diode laser manufactured by Technobis Mechatronics that combines good beam quality (due to spatial filtering) and high-speed analog modulation with full analog intensity control. The intensity can be monitored with the high-speed output terminal. Quality system certification is to ISO 9001:2000 KEMA. The compact and fully configurable device is a cost-effective solution for applications where high-speed modulated pulses are required, including lithographic mask writing, confocal microscope illumination, computer-to-plate printing, optical media mastering and Raman spectroscopy. Available wavelengths and power outputs are: 375 nm at 15 mW, 405 nm at 100 mW, 445 nm at 40 mW, 473 nm at 15 mW, 488 nm at 50 mW, and 640, 660, 785 and 808 nm at 100 mW. Analog modulation is up to 250 MHz. TEM00 beam quality is M2 <1.1, beam diameter is 0.70 ±0.1 mm, pointing stability is <30 µrad/°C, polarization is >1:100, and power stability is <1%. Beam ellipticity is <5%, rise and fall times are <2 ns, and the laser safety class is 3 b. The laser measures 225 × 62 × 78.5 mm and weighs 1200 g. It has an RS-232 interface, an organic LED display that indicates the laser status, and a low-noise power supply. Input voltage is 110/230 V, maximum power consumption is 10 W, and operating temperature is from 15 to 25 °C. Other beam diameters are available upon request.
