Description

The new Quantas Q1-100 series diode pumped, fully air-cooled, Q-switched laser designed for wide range of applications that require high peak power pulses. Due good thermal properties of Nd:YAG crystal laser delivers up to 25 mJ at 100 Hz repetition rate. This laser is ideal tool for applications like Light Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS), LCD repair, semiconductor failure analysis, laser ablation, remote sensing and many others.
Less than 10 ns pulse duration allows efficient fundamental wavelength conversion to higher harmonics with shortest wavelength available of 213 nm. Wavelength extension into infrared range by use of OPO is available by request. T
EC based cooling eliminate risks associated with water cooling (like leaks, circuit shortening etc.) as well as reduce running cost due to no maintenance required.
Low jitter triggering pulses for user equipment are available with up to 300 µs lead in internal triggering mode. If required, laser pulsing can be externally triggered from delay generator.
Laser is controlled via built-in Ethernet port through web-server with option to add Wi-Fi adapter. It allows users to monitor and control laser remotely.
