Coherent Inc. has introduced two continuous-wave green 532-nm lasers for use in life sciences applications. They deliver low noise of <0.1% rms and a TEM00 beam with M2 <1.1. The Genesis 532-1000 S models produce >1 W of output power and the Genesis 532-500 S models, >0.5 W. Both are air-cooled, available in OEM packaging and can be directly modulated. Based on proprietary optically pumped semiconductor laser technology, they are scalable in wavelength and output power. Linewidth is <30 GHz FWHM, pointing stability is <10 μrad/°C, polarization ratio is >100:1, horizontal, and operating diode current is <10 A.
