EKSPLA introduced new line of high energy nanosecond lasers.
NL120 series Q-switched nanosecond lasers are an excellent choice for many applications, including OPO, OPCPA or dye laser pumping, holography, LIF spectroscopy, material processing, remote sensing, optics testing and other tasks.
NL120 series electro-optically Q-switched nanosecond Nd:YAG lasers provide up to 1600 mJ per pulse with excellent stability. The innovative, diode‑pumped, self‑seeded master oscillator design results in Single Longitudinal Mode (SLM) output without the use of expensive narrow linewidth seed diodes and cavity‑locking electronics. Unlike more common designs that use an unstable laser cavity, the stable master oscillator cavity produces a TEM₀₀ spatial mode output that results in excellent beam properties after the amplification stages. For tasks that require a smooth and as close as possible to the Gaussian beam profile, models with improved Gaussian fit are available (see the description of the –G option below).
The low jitter of the optical pulse with respect to the Q-switch triggering pulse allows for the reliable synchronisation of the laser with external equipment.
The optional second (SH) (for 532 nm), third (TH) (for 355 nm) and fourth (FH) (for 266 nm) harmonics generators provide access to shorter wavelengths.
The laser is controlled by a supplied netbook PC via USB port with application for Windows™ operating system.
In addition, the main settings of the laser can be controlled through an auxiliary user-friendly remote control pad. The remote pad features a backlit display that is easy to read even when wearing laser safety eyewear.
