Long-Wavelength Infrared (LWIR) laser sources include the wavelengths from 9 μm –15 μm. CO2 lasers and Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCL) are the most common lasers in this wavelength spectrum. Our QCL lasers are available with both single-mode and multi-mode beam profiles, and typically have a free-space output. QCLs in the LWIR wavelengths are ideal for many applications in Industrial markets and are widely used in many various Gas Sensing applications. Long-Wavelength Infrared lasers emit in the main transmission bands of the atmosphere, between 9.0 µm and 17 µm and are available in the HHL Package, OEM package including the driver, and a turn-key solution.

The PowerMir series is a line of high-power pulsed Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCL) based on our proprietary technology. Various integration levels available, including plug-and-play benchtop turnkey systems, OEM driver + laser modules, or just the HHL-packaged lasers. QCW operation allows for increased wall-plug efficiency and thermal dissipation. The PowerMir series incorporates high-powered diodes emitting in the main transmission bands of the atmosphere and offers ITAR-free technology. The TEM00 Gaussian beam allows for high-quality performance, and the user-friendly Windows software streamlines operation.
The uniMir Series is a long-wavelength, single-frequency, DFB, CW Quantum Cascade Laser based on proprietary technology. The technology’s versatility allows them to address any wavelength between 10 and 18µm in CW and up to 21µm in pulsed mode. now commercially available in a sealed High Heat Load (HHL) package, with integrated collimating lens, thermistor, and thermoelectric cooler (TEC), well suited for integration into systems, or as a stand-alone turnkey system for R&D and detection applications.
