SOLNA, Sweden, March 28, 2011 — Cobolt AB has released a new wavelength on the single-frequency Cobolt Jive diode-pumped solid-state laser. It now operates at 561 nm with up to 300 mW of continuous-wave output power and is suited to applications such as advanced flow cytometry and superresolution microscopy.
It produces a TEM00 beam with M2 <1.1, and a new proprietary cavity design provides ultralow-noise performance of typically <0.1% rms from 20 Hz to 20 MHz, an operating temperature range of 0 to 40 °C and a narrow spectral linewidth of <1 MHz. It is immune to optical feedback.
The laser is manufactured using proprietary HTCure Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package that provides good reliability and immunity to varying environmental conditions. The laser can withstand multiple 60-g mechanical shocks in operation without any sign of degraded performance. It can be exposed to extreme temperatures of >100 °C and is insensitive to pressure and humidity.
The laser is supplied with a compact controller (Center for Devices and Radiological Health or OEM) that can be remotely accessed for operating and monitoring the laser system over digital RS-232 or analog interfaces.
