These single-mode and multimode CW offerings are available with either free-space or fiber-coupled output. Furthermore, along with standard output, narrow linewidth or broadband output options are also available. Finally, our laser package options range from simple laser diodes, to modules to full turn-key systems.
RPMC Lasers offers a wide selection of Pulsed Laser technologies (Types). For example, these types include Diode-Pumped Solid-State (DPSS) Lasers, Flash-lamp Lasers, Ultrafast Lasers, Fiber Lasers, Microlasers/Microchip Lasers, Tunable Lasers, MIL-Spec Lasers, Micromachining Lasers, and Custom Lasers.
Utilizing pulse generation techniques like mode-locking and active and passive Q-switching, these lasers produce high peak power or high energy pulses with a lower duty cycle. These lasers provide Nanosecond (ns), Picosecond (ps): >300 Picosecond & <300 Picosecond, and Femtosecond laser pulse widths.
Our pulsed products are available in many wavelengths in the UV, Violet, Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, NIR, SWIR, and MWIR regimes. Furthermore, our lasers provide average output powers from a few mW to 100W and pulse energies from nanojoules to 100’s of millijoules. Finally, these options provide pulse repetition rates from single-shot up to 80MHz.
Our Diode Pumped Solid State (DPSS) Laser Amplifiers and Fiber Laser Amplifiers are available in the IR wavelengths, at 1064nm, and the fiber Amplifiers are also available at 1550nm. The DPSS Amplifiers can be operated in CW or with pulses as short as picoseconds. All the Fiber Amplifiers are CW. Output power varies depending on the model.
RPMC offers a variety of fiber & DPSS amplifiers. The DPSS Amplifiers are capable of CW or pulsed operation, with pulses as short as Picoseconds. However, the Fiber Amplifiers provide only CW operation. Output power varies depending on the model.
Our Diode-Pumped Solid-State (DPSS) Laser Amplifiers and Fiber Laser Amplifiers are available in the IR wavelengths, at 1030nm and 1064nm. The Fiber Amplifiers are also available at 1550nm, up to 2054nm.

They also have laser diode protection circuits such as interlock, ESD protection, and hardware limits for current and voltage.
Our OEM driver boards are an attractively priced solution for your pulsed, QCW, and CW laser needs. The standard products below represent statements of capability. Finally, most of our drivers for OEM production are customized to meet the requirements of the end user.
– Heatsinks –
Our Laser Diode Heatsinks and Mounts support many standard laser diode packages, including; Butterfly, DIL, C-mount, HHL (high heat load), TO-3, TO-5.6, TO-9, and other packages. Using state of the art design tools, these heatsinks and mounts have been optimized into a highly efficient heat transfer testbed, improving upon the heat transfer found in most other mounts.
Our heatsinks for laser diodes feature both passive and active Peltier cooling solutions. In short, passively cooled units conduct the heat away from the laser and dissipates it into the ambient air, and actively cooled heatsinks utilizes a thermoelectric cooler (TEC) to cool the laser diode package.
– Raman Probe –
RPMC Lasers is proud to introduce an ultra-high throughput integrated Raman probe. This novel device includes an integrated wavelength stabilized laser source with Raman filter packs, beam shaping optics, and high-efficiency Raman spectra collection optics. The Raman probe interfaces with any fiber-coupled spectrometer to simplify operation and set-up.
The Integrated Raman Probe incorporates our wavelength stabilized hybrid external cavity laser (HECL) with a proprietary optical design to offer unmatched performance (typically 3x -5x over traditional Raman probes) at a reasonable price.
– Fibers –
Lastly, we have a large selection of multi mode fiber options in stock. For example, options include 0.14 and 0.22 NA, 62-800µm core diameter, length of 1 to 10m, and with or without stainless steel squarelock sheathing, depending on the product configuration. Finally, all options are silica/silica step index fiber and have SMA-905 connectors. Call to verify availability.
– Thin Disk Gain Media –
Thin-disk lasers typically utilize ytterbium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Yb:YAG) crystal as the gain medium. Compared to neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) crystal, Yb:YAG displays several benefits. Firstly, it provides a shorter emission wavelength at around 1030 nm. Secondly, it has a lesser degree of quantum defect, which provides improved efficiency with regard to the conversion from pump photons to laser photons. Thirdly, Yb:YAG has a longer upper-state lifetime, which is beneficial for energy storage regarding Q-switching.
– Pump Modules –
The pump modules we offer are designed for fiber-coupled pump beam delivery. Furthermore, acceptable pump beam wavelengths include 940nm and 969nm. Our pump modules do not come with the Thin Disk Gain Media included. However, they are compatible with the TD12 or TD20 options of gain media, which can be found here.
