PHOTONICS Industries has released the DC series of eye-safe wavelength lasers. The series is available from Warsash Scientific .
The rugged and reliable system incorporates frequency conversion technology, enabling it to produce a high efficiency, high pulse rate laser source at the eye-safe wavelength of 1.516μm. It is the first eye-safe wavelength laser than can operate at 10kHz in repetition rate and in Q-switched mode.
The system produces up to 1mJ per pulse at 1kHz at the wavelength of 1.516μm. Applications include rangefinders, environmental sensing, military target and security illumination, and aerosol/cloud LIDAR.
