3D Scanning Lasers Overview

Similar to laser radar, 3D laser scanning is a non-contact, non-destructive technology that digitally captures the shape of objects creating a point cloud of data from the surface of an object.  The primary differentiator between laser radar and 3D scanning is the distance from the target. In this application, the laser is typically only few inches from the object under investigation. Short-pulsed lasers are typically used for this application, since the distance to the object is measured by looking at the roundtrip time-of-flight of each pulse, but frequency-modulated single-frequency fiber lasers can also be used for select applications.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the lasers we offer, geared toward this application.

RPMC has years of experience supporting 3D Scanning applications, helping industry professionals select the right tool for the job.

Q-Spark

Quantas-Q-SPARK-266: High energy, compact, nanosecond, DPSS laser

The Q-SPARK series, from Quantum Light Instruments Ltd., features a short <1.5 ns pulse with pulse energies up to 10 mJ. Due to the short cavity design, pulse durations of <800ps are achievable with pulse energies up to 5mJ. The innovative water-free laser crystal end-pumping technology produces a Gaussian-like, low divergence, high peak power laser beam in compact, air-cooled package.

Microchip Series

Bright Microlaser Microchip SB1 Laser

The Microchip Series, from BrightMicroLaser, are ultra-compact, passively q-switched, single longitudinal mode (SLM), narrow linewidth, DPSS lasers that feature pulse durations from 350 ps to 3 ns, energy levels up to 100 uJ and repetition rates up to 100 kHz. In addition to the fundamental 1064 nm wavelength and its harmonics (532, 355 and 266 nm), we also deliver units emitting at 946 and 473 nm.

Wedge Series

Wedge-XF-1064: 1064nm Picosecond Laser

The Wedge series of DPSS Lasers have been designed for OEM applications like micro machining of hard and soft materials, specialty marking, glass and crystals engraving, LIDAR, LIBS, Spectroscopy and medical diagnostics. High peak powers, with relatively low energy and heat generation, allows efficient ablation and non-linear interaction with most materials. The compact and lightweight package represents a great benefit in LIDAR and other aerospace applications, while short pulses give extremely precise time-of-flight measurements.
Second Harmonic (532 nm output) and wavelength conversion option widen the product application range.
