Yellow (560-589nm) Lasers

Yellow lasers are one of the most challenging lasers to produce because there are no direct diode or solid-state sources available.  As a result, most yellow lasers are frequency doubled Nd: YAG lasers which are designed to lase at one of the secondary lines such as 1122 nm.  Even though the transition cross section at 1122 nm is about 40% of the 1064 nm laser line, the technology has matured over the past ten years to the point where yellow diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers are now more reliable than their gas laser counterparts.  Yellow is instrumental for a wide array of applications, but most notably as an excitation source in DNA sequencing and confocal fluorescence microscopy.  OEM yellow laser packages and yellow laser modules are both available.
