1W Lasers

What are 1W Lasers?

1W Lasers are any laser that designates 1W of average output power, having either CW (continuous-wave) or pulsed output. CW Lasers are always defined in average output power. Pulsed Lasers with an output power defined in Watts or Milliwatts usually define the laser’s average power, not the peak power of the laser.

Lasers with 1W output can also be referred to as 1000mW lasers – these terms are interchangeable.

Our 1W Laser Products

RPMC provides a wide selection of lasers with ≈ 1W average power output, including CW DPSS lasers, CW fiber lasers, line modules, single-emitter laser diodes, laser diode modules, VCSELs, QCLs, pulsed DPSS lasers, pulsed fiber lasers, ultrafast lasers, MIL-spec lasers, and fiber amplifiers.

1000mW lasers come in many different configurations. For some brief examples, RPMC provides a high-power laser diode module, with 1000mW, 830nm output, and multimode fiber w/ FC/PC connector, perfect for confocal fluorescence microscopy, DNA sequencing, and flow cytometry. We also provide a ≈ 1W DPSS nanosecond laser,  with <20ns, 30mJ pulses at 355, 532, or 1064nm, and up to 30Hz PRF with manual beam steering, perfect for infrared absorption spectroscopy, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy, and LIDAR. Our final example is a 1W quantum cascade laser (QCL), with a 4.6µm (4600nm) QCW output, available in your choice of HHL, HHL + PCB, or fully turnkey package, perfect for gas sensing, range finding, night vision, and particle measurement.

Depending on what your application requirements are, there is likely a suitable standard laser configuration available. However, there is always a possibility of customizing a solution to better fit your needs.
