What are SWIR Lasers (short-wave infrared lasers)?
SWIR Lasers or short-wave infrared lasers, are laser sources that emit laser light in the SWIR spectral region from 1.4μm –3 μm and are a diverse category of solid-state lasers; with laser diodes and quantum cascade laser diodes, diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers, both CW and pulsed, fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers all emitting in the SWIR spectrum.
Short Wavelength Infrared pulsed lasers are also available with an extensive range of pulse widths and peak powers. Not only can SWIR fiber lasers produce high output powers, but they are also able to provide extremely narrow linewidth (and therefore long coherence lengths) making them ideal for a wide variety of lidar applications.
