The Bright Solutions Group consists of 4 business units: Bright Solutions, Bright Microlaser, Bright Systems, and Bright Aerospace.

Bright Solutions:

Bright Solutions develops and manufactures state-of-the-art nanosecond DPSS lasers and sub-ns DPSS lasers. Their diode pumped solid state (DPSS) laser portfolio includes efficient, compact, and reliable sources at 1064nm, 532nm, 355nm, 266nm, 15XXnm, and 3um.  These lasers are suitable for industrial, aerospace, medical, military and scientific applications.

Bright Solutions has strong expertise in industrial laser production and testing. Their proprietary laser designs for industrial applications, are an indisputable success and are marketed worldwide in the thousands of pieces.  Leveraging their experienced laser design and custom-oriented engineering, they develop DPSS Laser dedicated solutions tailored to customer needs.

Historically, Bright Solutions’ products have been air-cooled short nanosecond lasers and more recently picosecond lasers down to 100 ps. Bright Solutions offers the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th harmonics of their lasers, as well as at times the 5th harmonic, and 1.5 um and 3.3 um versions of some of its lasers. Bright Solutions has in excess of 4,000 lasers in use in the field.

Sol is the most compact Q-switched DPSS laser available on the market in the power range from 6W to 40W @ 1064nm. Sol versions @ 532nn are also available with the same footprint. These air-cooled DPSS lasers are offered in a rugged and lightweight single unit, designed to allow easy and reliable integration in micromachining and marking applications. The Sol single unit design is based on a permanently aligned monolithic optical resonator integrated with 24 Vdc powered driving electronics. Cooling of the unit is provided by low noise fans; water cooling and contact cooling versions are also available. other delicate cable connections are not necessary for system integration.

Compactness, insensitivity to environmental conditions and ease of handling guarantee cost ratio. The high peak power and the excellent beam quality of Sol lasers make them the ideal source for the most demanding industrial, medical and scientific applications.

The new electronic interface allows the user to integrate the laser according to the most recent safety standards for industrial machines (EN 13849) and to monitor the laser status through a RS232 port. A new version of the Control Box and a new proprietary Software Interface are available for simplified remote control and monitoring.

Based on a proprietary fast active Q-Switching technology, these compact sealed DPSS lasers are insensitive to vibrations and harsh environments and 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 output peak power, with relatively low energy and heat generation, allows efficient ablation and non-linear interaction with most materials.

The compact and lightweight 532nm green laser package represents a great benefit in LIDAR and other aerospace applications, while short pulses give extremely precise time-of-flight measurements, also for “eye-safe” applications. Second, Third and Fourth Harmonics (532, 355 and 266nm output) and wavelength conversion option (1.5 and 3.3um) widen the product applications range.

Wedge is also a flexible platform for realizing customized units where high power amplifiers are added to standard oscillators in order to fit the most demanding industrial and aerospace applications. Several Wedge based MOPA lasers are currently employed as “engine” in high-demanding field applications, both industrial and Mil-spec.

A wide range of customized solutions based on the diode pumped solid-state laser Wedge platform is available under request, e.g. meeting specific time/energy performances, vibe and shock requirements, extreme environmental conditions and compliance to Mil-specifications.
