Optics for DPSS Lasers: Finding a Balance

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Trey Turner and Quentin Turchette, REO Inc.

Building efficient, reliable DPSS lasers requires optics with low loss and excellent stability – but these optics can’t drive up the cost. Reduced demands on pump power, thermal management systems and environmental controls can offset the cost of high-quality optics. Understanding such trade-offs is an important part of successful laser design. Building efficient diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers requires a careful balance between price, performance and stability of the cavity optics. In particular, a number of optical components critically affect laser operating and...Read full article
