Night Vision Lasers Overview
Night vision active imaging is a process that combines traditional infrared imaging, with time-of-flight (TOF) lidar to produce 3-dimensional images without the need for visible lighting. Active night vision imaging is typically used in high-end surveillance for both military and commercial security systems. In this application, night vision lasers are usually pulsed 1.5-micron sources with an internal photodiode. The integral photodiode allows for the InGaAs camera to be triggered each time a pulse is fired, ensuring accurate TOF measurements. Additionally, 1.5 microns is the ideal wavelength for night vision lasers because it is considered eye-safe, and therefore does not pose an optical hazard to any individuals who happen to pass through the beam path. On this page, you will find a list of all of the night vision lasers we offer both diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) and flash lamp-pumped lasers, with either passive or active q-switching.
