Diode-pumped lasers

Diode-pumped lasers

The Compass series of all-solid-state, diode-pumped lasers outputs continuous-wave green and infrared wavelengths in a compact footprint. Compass 532 delivers 10 mW to 5W for single-frequency green (532-nm) output, while the Compass 1064 outputs 80 mW to 5W at 1604 nm. The miniature version, the Compass 315M, is an intracavity frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser that provides more than 50 mW or 100 mW at 532 nm. Verdi, the highest power member of the Compass series, has a laser head the size of a shoe box and delivers greater than 5W of continuous-wave single-frequency green output. The Impact series are diode-pumped Q-switched, solid-state lasers, which provide high-energy pulses (to 0.75 mJ) and high repetition rates (to 70 kHz). Impact 501Q diode-pumped, Q-switched, Nd:YAG laser provides high-energy pulses (greater than 0.75 mJ) and repetition rates to 50 kHz.
