The Quantas-Q-SHIFT family of Q-switched DPSS lasers feature a built‑in nonlinear wavelength conversion stage, allowing the production of wavelengths that are not accessible with conventional solid-state laser sources, including 1163, 1177, 1300, 1317, 1551 and 1571nm. An optional harmonics generator is also available for for the Q-SHIFT, allowing generation of up to the 4th harmonic for each fundamental wavelength.
This air-cooled series of lasers builds on the Q2 and Q2HE series and the guaranteed > 2 G shot lifetime, utilizing the same time tested Nd:YAG and Nd:YLF lasers as pump sources. It provides high-speed triggering pulses with RMS jitter > 0.5 ns with respect to Q-switch triggering edge of the pulse and both internal and external triggering. The Quantas-Q-SHIFT laser is controlled via a built-in Ethernet port with the option to add Wi-Fi adapter, allowing users to monitor and control laser remotely.
Due to a short laser cavity and excellent thermal properties of the crystal, this series produces high peak intensity pulses (up to 50mJ @ 1163 or 1177nm), with typical pulse durations from 2-5ns, and a repetition rate up to 100Hz, even at visible wavelengths (blue, yellow and red) when the Quantas-Q-SHIFT laser is combined with our attachable SHG or stand-alone H-SMART harmonic generator. This laser’s functionality can be further extended by auxiliary equipment, including an attachable motorized attenuator for fundamental wavelength beam, attachable pulse energy monitor with analog and/or digital output, and a stand-alone two-channel pulse generator.
