Scaling up energy from laser sources without compromising beam quality

In modern laser applications, high beam quality and high power are both mandatory. The scaling up of power and energy from a laser source while maintaining high beam quality is one of the most important and active fields of laser research. 2μm compact solid state lasers are being increasingly used in numerous applications such as remote atmospheric sensing, free space optical communications, homeland security and OPO pumping for mid-IR source. However, due to the higher quantum defect, the performance of 2μm sources suffers from stronger thermal effects than in the 1μm range. For this reason, existing products are big and expensive, or small but have low energy.
The MultipLaserTM is a compact and reliable single laser module that uses a passive Q switch and a thermal management design to achieve breakthrough results in terms of energy per pulse.

– Passively q-switched solid state laser demonstrating high energy pulse with new thermal management design.
– This design yields 3.5 times more energy than by current design lasers.
– 2μm lasers are attractive for medical application such as surgery or cosmetic resurfacing due to their high absorption quality in human tissue.
– Combining that this region is eye safe and has low atmospheric absorption it can be used for remote sensing, laser radar and optical communication.
– Replacing 1μm laser with 2μm can shorten and reduce cost for plastic material processing methods.

– It suits detecting CO2, water vapor and therefore is used for climate prediction and greenhouse’s effect analysis.2μm laser is a key subsystem for a coherent Doppler LIDAR that measures the horizontal and vertical wind velocities.
