SOLNA, Sweden, Oct. 3, 2012 — Cobolt AB has released four single-frequency diode-pumped solid-state lasers based on the 05-01 platform. The Zouk 355 nm is now available with output power up to 20 mW; the Samba 532 nm up to 1.5 W; the Flamenco 660 nm up to 0.5 W; and the Rumba 1064 nm up to 3 W. The proprietary laser cavity design provides noise of <0.1% rms from 20 Hz to 20 MHz over a temperature range from 10 to 40 °C; a spectral linewidth of <1 MHz; and immunity to optical feedback. The power scalability and high optical and single-frequency performance make the lasers suitable for use in superresolution stimulated emission depletion microscopy, UV fluorescence analysis in flow cytometry and confocal microscopy, Ti:sapphire laser pumping, DNA sequencing, Raman spectroscopy, optical tweezers, nonlinear frequency conversion and particle analysis. The lasers are manufactured using proprietary HTCure technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package, providing immunity to varying environmental conditions. They can be exposed to temperatures >100 °C and are insensitive to pressure and humidity.
