pWEDGE : Short pulsed DPSS Laser
pWedge represents a flexible platform for customized units where high power amplifiers can be added to the Wedge HB, Wedge HF and Wedge XF lasers in order to fit the most demanding industrial and aerospace applications.
Based on a proprietary fast Q-Switching technology, these compact sealed and monolithic diode pumped lasers are insensitive to vibrations and harsh environments.
The pWedge picosecond laser has been designed for OEM applications like micromachining of hard and soft materials, specialty marking, glass and crystals engraving, LIDAR, LIBS, spectroscopy and medical diagnostics. This monolithic laser has high peak power output with relatively low energy and heat generation, which allows for efficient ablation and non-linear interaction with most materials. The compact and lightweight package provides great benefit for LIDAR and other aerospace applications while short pulses give extremely precise time-of-flight measurements.
