1551nm Lasers, specifically Diode-Pumped Solid-State (DPSS) Lasers, utilize a built-in nonlinear wavelength conversion stage to achieve a shifted fundamental wavelength of Nd:YLF laser material, as opposed to the more traditional 1053nm wavelength.
These high-power, nanosecond, short-wave infrared (SWIR) lasers are available with free-space output and a variety of pulse energies depending on the applications needs. Typical applications for these SWIR Lasers include Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, Time-of-Flight Spectroscopy, 3D Scanning, LIDAR, and more.
The Q-SHIFT series of Q-switched DPSS lasers is designed for researchers and application specialists working in micromachining, dermatology, LIDAR, time-resolved laser spectroscopy, and LIBS applications. With its built-in nonlinear wavelength conversion stage, this series allows the production of unconventional fundamental DPSS wavelengths, including 1163, 1177, 1300, 1317, 1551 and 1571 nm options, making it an ideal choice for those seeking wavelengths that are not accessible with conventional solid-state laser sources. With the optional harmonics generator, it is possible to generate up to the 4th harmonic for each fundamental wavelength, providing even more versatility.
