MWIR Lasers Overview
MWIR, Mid-Wavelength Infrared, laser sources include the wavelengths from 3 μm –8 μm and Quantum Cascade Laser Diodes are the most common lasers in this wavelength spectrum. These lasers are available with both single-mode and multi-mode beam profiles, and typically have a free space output. MWIR lasers are ideal for many applications in the Defense market and are widely used in counter measure applications. Mid-Wavelength Infrared lasers emit in the main transmission bands of the atmosphere, 4.0µm, 4.6µm, and 4.8µm. Our QCLs are available in the HHL Package, OEM package including the driver, and a turn-key solution.
