O’FALLON, Mo., March 25, 2013 — Laser distributor RPMC Lasers Inc. has released Areté Associates’ Airtrac, an ultracompact diode-pumped solid-state laser.

The air-cooled laser provides 50 mJ of pulse energy at 1064 nm, with pulse widths of 6-ns full width half maximum and repetition rate capability up to 30 Hz. Despite its size (6.5 cu in/0.43 lb), it features a resonator design that promotes a highly uniform beam. The laser was built on a fundamentally athermal gain module.

The Airtrac design is scalable, allowing for higher pulse energies and the addition of nonlinear optics to reach eye-safe wavelengths. Both the 532-nm and optical parametric oscillator crystals will be internal to the laser and available in the standard packaging.

The device has performed over a temperature range of −40 to 60 °C and is specified to operate at up to 70 °C. Typical applications include laser designation, lidar, LIBS (laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy), ranging and medical.
