Overview of Wedge-XF-532-Plus: 532nm Nanosecond Laser
Wedge XF sub-nanosecond (300ps), DPSS laser produces up to 70uJ of pulse energy at 1064nm, with operation from single shot to 100 kHz, in a compact, air-cooled OEM solution. Second, Third and Fourth Harmonics (532, 355 and 266nm output) and wavelength conversion option (1.5um) widen the suitable applications range for the Wedge.
Based on a proprietary fast active Q-Switching technology, these sealed DPSS lasers are insensitive to vibrations and harsh environments. The compact and lightweight package represents a great benefit in LIDAR and other aerospace applications, while short pulses and high peak powers, with relatively low heat generation, allows for efficient ablation and non-linear interaction in materials used for OEM applications such as micro-machining and specialty marking of glass, metals, polymers and other hard and soft materials, as well as scientific applications, including LIBs, spectroscopy and medical diagnostics.
Wedge is a flexible platform for realizing custom solutions such as meeting specific time/energy requirements, vibe/shock or other extreme environmental conditions, as well as compliance to Mil-specifications. High power amplifiers can be added to standard oscillators in order to increase performance and meet the demands of a variety of industrial and aerospace applications. Several Wedge based MOPA lasers are currently employed as “optical engines” in high-demanding field applications.
Performance, flexibility, industry proven reliability and overall low total cost of ownership makes the Wedge Series an ideal solution for many industrial, defense and scientific applications.
