Pulse duration


The typical configuration of these lasers is based on a Nd:YAG crystal placed in a cavity of a few millimeters in length, leading to a very compact laser design with a surprising performance, such as sub-nanosecond pulse widths and a peak power of several tens of kilowatts. State-of-the-art robust laser design allows it to be easily integrated into various laser applications and setups.

Additional harmonics modules for 532 nm, 355 nm, or 266 nm wavelengths are available on request for all models. “Waveguard” series lasers offer wavelength stabilization possibility up to 3 pm and laser modules with a photodiode to control pulse repetition rate are available on request for all models.
