Lasers 101 Selection Guide

Selecting a laser source for your application can be overwhelming. There are many types of lasers and levels of integration to choose from, so it is important to know their differences and the impacts they will have on your project. We provide an overview of laser types and information about their parameters to help answer any questions you may have.

Blog Posts

In our lasers blog, you can find useful information about RPMC and the rest of the laser industry, as well as a wide variety of laser applications and technologies. Keep checking back to discover new articles! You can also sign up for our weekly newsletter for up-to-date information and announcements for new blogs, white papers, and more!

White Papers

White papers are more formal articles which allow us to go into an even deeper dive than a traditional blog or application note.  Find in depth articles about laser sources for automotive and doppler LIDAR, infrared counter measures, multi-color fluorescence microscopy, and machine vision, improving the lifetime of your laser diodes, and more!
