What is a Green Laser?
RPMC defines green lasers as any laser device that emits wavelengths within the 500 nm to 559 nm spectral region.
Green solid-state lasers are available in both pulsed and CW configurations and offer a wide range of applications including Raman spectroscopy, because of their narrow spectral linewidth, where flashlamp-pumped pulsed 532 nm lasers are beneficial in applications requiring high peak power such as laser ablation and tattoo removal. Recent advancements in GaN technology has allowed for the development of green laser diodes, which have filled in the lower wavelength range with diodes available between 505 nm and 520 nm.
Green laser wavelengths provide more energy than their infrared counterparts, considering the same power output. This is because the shorter the wavelength, the higher the frequency or number of waves per second that pass through a point in space. Higher frequency equals higher energy.
Diode-Pumped Solid-State (DPSS) 532nm Lasers are by far the most common green laser available on the market today. They are produced by frequency doubling Nd: YAG, Nd: YVO, or Nd: Glass solid-state lasers to provide 532 nm laser light (green laser light).
Green lasers are used in various applications, such as fluorescence spectroscopy, optical alignment, dermatology, pumping of Ti:Sapphire lasers. Since many optics suppliers sell 532 nm radiation-dedicated optics right off-the-shelf, it is cost effective to use this particular wavelength for optics alignment, projections, imaging, etc. Many of those applications require laser source having good beam quality and and high power stability.
