  • 660-nm Flamenco 300-mW Laser
Apr 2011
Cobolt ABRequest Info
SOLNA, Sweden, April 8, 2011 — Cobolt AB has released a new wavelength on the single-frequency diode-pumped solid-state 05-01 series platform. The Cobolt Flamenco operates at 660 nm with up to 300 mW of continuous-wave output power and is suited for use in DNA sequencing, Raman spectroscopy and interferometry.

The laser produces a TEM00 beam with M2 <1.1. A new proprietary cavity design provides ultralow-noise performance of typically <0.1% rms from 20 Hz to 20 MHz and over a temperature range from 10 to 40 °C. Other features include a narrow spectral linewidth of <1 MHz and immunity to optical feedback.

It is manufactured in a compact and hermetically sealed package using proprietary HTCure technology that provides reliability and insensitivity to varying environmental conditions. It can withstand multiple 60-g mechanical shocks in operation without any sign of degraded performance, and it can be exposed to temperatures of >100 °C. It 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 operation and monitoring of the system over digital RS-232 or analog interfaces.

A physical variable that is proportionally similar to another variable over a specified range. An analog recording contains data that is similar to the source.
Denoting the use of binary notation; i.e., the representation of data by bits (1 or 0).
diode-pumped solid-state laser
A compact solid-state laser, referred to as DPSSL, created when a laser diode pumps light into either the sides or end of gain crystal. Depending on where the pumping occurs, high-quality and stable output beams can be achieved with end-pumped lasers, and high-power output beams can be realized as with side-pumped lasers. Common in green laser pointers, DPSSLs are also used for a variety of materials processing applications, such as cutting and precision marking, and in optogenetics.
The study and utilization of interference phenomena, based on the wave properties of light.
Raman spectroscopy
That branch of spectroscopy concerned with Raman spectra and used to provide a means of studying pure rotational, pure vibrational and rotation-vibration energy changes in the ground level of molecules. Raman spectroscopy is dependent on the collision of incident light quanta with the molecule, inducing the molecule to undergo the change.
