  • Cobolt Pulsed Lasers
Jan 2014
Cobolt ABRequest Info
SOLNA, Sweden, Jan. 17, 2014 — A new family of pulsed lasers by Cobolt AB consists of two series: the Thor Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser series and the Odin compact, tunable mid-IR laser series. The Thor series is suitable for rangefinding, Raman, lidar, micromachining and micromarking; applications for the Odin series include trace-gas analysis for pollution control in the petrochemical, automotive and energy industries.

The Thor series offers pulse repetition rates >7 kHz, average power up to 1 W, pulse lengths <5 ns and pulse-to-pulse stability. The emission is generated in a TEM00 beam with single-frequency spectral characteristics.

The industrial-grade Odin lasers are based on a fully contained, temperature-tunable optical parametric oscillator and integrated pump laser in a 125 × 70 × 45-mm footprint. Periodically poled nonlinear optical crystals offer spectrally flexible generation of mid-IR emission from 2 to 5 µm at 10 kHz, with <5-ns pulse widths, a linewidth of <1.5 nm and tunable up to 50 nm.

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.
