LWIR Lasers Overview
LWIR, Long-Wavelength Infrared, 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 the Defense market and are widely used in counter measure applications. Long-Wavelength Infrared lasers emit in the main transmission bands of the atmosphere, 9.0µm and are available in the HHL Package, OEM package including the driver, and a turn-key solution.
