Range Finding Lasers

Laser range finding is a term used to describe the process of determining the distance to a fixed object.  This process is essentially a simplified version of laser radar, and therefore has many of the same requirements as LIDAR lasers.  Since we are only considering stationary targets and distance is the only thing being measured, range finding lasers are always pulsed to measure the roundtrip time-of-flight and calculate the distance to the target.  An additional constraint on laser range finding that not all lidar systems have is the need to be very careful about eye safety since they are typically operating over shorter distances and in more populated areas.  As a result, most of these lasers operate around 1.5 microns in wavelength, which is considered to be “eye-safe” because of the extremely high-water absorption, useful for protecting the sensitive retina. These lasers are typically OEM versions designed to be easily integrated into your final package or system as a laser rangefinder (commonly misspelled as laser rangfinder) for the military, golf, hunting, shooting, construction, forestry, and many other industries and applications. On this page, you will see a list of all of the range-finding lasers for sale, including both passively and actively q-switched Er: Glass lasers.

LGK Series

The LGK Series of Gas Lasers include a wide range of HeNe and Argon lasers with wavelengths at 488nm, 515nm, 543nm, 594nm, and 633nm.

OT Series

The OT series of Erbium Glass lasers are ultra-compact, high energy q-switched, solid-state lasers that are well suited for rugged, field applications such as active night vision and rangefinding. These air-cooled lasers are available in both lamp-pumped and diode-pumped configurations, with passive and active Q-switching options. With over 10,000 units in the field, the OT series is a proven technology operating in some of the more challenging laser environments.

QCL Series

mirSense Product Family

The QCL series is a high power pulsed Quantum Cascade Laser based on proprietary technology which incorporates high-powered diodes (typically watt-level) emitting in the main transmission bands of the atmosphere (4.0µm, 4.6µm, 4.8µm, 9.x µm). The ITAR free MirSense technology exhibits outstanding performance in terms of power and wall-plug efficiency. This high-performance QCL laser assembly takes full advantage of MirSense’s state of the art technologies.
