New SWIR laser collimators from Micro Laser Systems

With the introduction of a 2 µm optical coating, Micro Laser Systems (µLS) have significantly broadened the available wavelengths their standard FC laser collimators can operate in. µLS can now offer collimators in four wavebands that cover the 350 to 2300 nm spectral range.

Designed specifically for single mode fibre, polarisation maintaining fibre, and fibre laser applications requiring a pure Gaussian beam, the µLS FC collimators deliver a very clean output with no diffraction patterns or beam distortions from apertures up to 45 mm in diameter.

Micro Laser Systems’ FC Series collimators can be used with any commercially available fibre-coupled laser, including Ar, YAG, TiS, HeNe, or DPSS systems.

For more information, visit our Micro Laser Systems (µLS) pages, or contact us.

Integrated Optics add two new laser wavelengths: 445 and 488 nm

Integrated Optics UAB has expanded their range of MatchBox™ series CW Micro Lasers by introducing 445 nm and 488 nm models for applications in chemistry and biophotonics. The MatchBox™ series includes both DPSS and direct diode lasers with a wide range of output wavelengths – from 405 nm to 1342 nm – with either free space or fibre coupled outputs.

With a small, robust and easy to integrate form factor, which is enabled by the monolithic design and semi-automated precision assembly process, the MatchBox™ series has the best power, size, and price ratio in the market, making them ideal as a research-grade laser.

New Ultrafast Sprite Lasers from M Squared

Sprite-t™ is a new approach to ultrafast Ti:Sapphire laser design, providing the user with a host of features that maximise stability, reliability and productivity. Available in widely-tunable femtosecond or picosecond versions (models XT-F or XT-P), or broad bandwith XP model, Sprite is equally at home in a laboratory or an OEM environment. Download Sprite-t series datasheet.

Sprite-e™ is the world’s first commercially available modelocked semiconductor disk laser that provides picosecond pulses with high average power and superb beam quality in the important 900-1100 nm wavelength region. It is directly pumped and therefore requires no external DPSS laser system. Custom choices of wavelength, tuning range, and repetition rates are available in addition to the standard 975 nm 500 MHz model.  Download Sprite-e datasheet.

Sprite features

  • Ultracompact, rugged, sealed, monolithic designs
  • Hands-free, alignment- and maintenance-free operation
  • Cavity optics mounted on an Invar® resonator sub-plate for superb stability
  • Proprietary InvarianT™ alignment-free opto-mechanical mounts

Sprite applications

  • Optical metrology
  • Nonlinear optics
  • Pump-probe experiments
  • Multi-Photon Excitation (MPE) or CARS microscopy
  • Electro-optic sampling

New Thales Laser Datasheets Uploaded

A number of new datasheets have been uploaded to the relevant web pages on our site for Thales Laser LPSS – lamp pumped solid state – and DPSS – diode pumped solid state lasers. The new design of the datasheets reveal more about the applications the lasers are suitable for and make the specifications clearer and up to date.

Elliot Scientific is attending Photonics Ireland and SASQC11 next month

SolsTiS CW narrow linewidth laser

The first week in September sees Elliot Scientific attending simultaneous conferences in the Atlantic Archipelago. In Dublin on the 7th, 8th and 9th at the Grand Malahide Hotel, Photonics Ireland is taking place. Meanwhile, over in London, Imperial College are hosting the International Symposium on Attoscience and Ultrafast Quantum Control – SASQC11 .

Elliot Scientific will be present at both events. We will be partnered by Glasgow-based M Squared Lasers – known for their next-generation DPSS laser systems – in Dublin, and leading high-speed laser specialists FEMTOLASERS Produktions from Austria will be alongside us at Imperial.

New Symphony and Scherzo from KLASTECH are music to our ears

KLASTECH Laser Technologies on Elliot ScientificKLASTECH are releasing their second generation DPSS single-frequency continuous wave lasers over the coming months and first out are the new high-performance Symphony and Scherzo models.

With both operating at the significant 532 nm wavelength, these lasers come in a variety of powers – Symphony up to 1.5 W and Scherzo offering 50 to 300 mW, are OEM ready, and can be supplied with a choice of connectors – USB, RS-232, Ethernet etc. – for interfacing with a PC-based controller.

Symphony and Scherzo offer beam quality, power and control at realistic prices: outperforming many rival and more expensive offerings – and single frequency operation is included as standard! Contact us now for details.
