Eye-Safe Lasers Based on OPO Technology

Jan. 6, 2004
Bohemia, NY, January 7, 2004. Photonics Industries has introduced a new eye-safe wavelength laser. The DS Series Nd:YLF based Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO), represents a new approach to producing eye-safe wavelength lasers. This design incorporates Photonics Industries' patented frequency conversion technology, which enables it to produce a high efficiency, high pulse rate laser source at the eye-safe wavelength of 1.516 microns.

Bohemia, NY, January 7, 2004. Photonics Industries has introduced a new eye-safe wavelength laser.

This design incorporates Photonics Industries' patented frequency conversion technology, which enables it to produce a high efficiency, high pulse rate laser source at the eye-safe wavelength of 1.516 microns.

This is the first eye-safe OPO laser that can operate at a 10kHz repetition rate, and in Q-switched mode. In addition, this system produces 3mJ per pulse at 1kHz at the wavelength of 1.516 microns. The Nd:YLF based laser produces well over 3W at 2.5kHz at 1.516 microns.

This source provides a solution to several specific applications including Rangefinders, Environmental Sensing, Military Target and Security Illumination, and Aerosol/Cloud LIDAR.
