Some laser applications require a system that is robust and rugged, prime examples include laser range finding and remote sensing.

Cobolt AB has announced a new IR laser system, which addresses the issue of ruggedness and reliability, the hermetically sealed TangoTM.

The TangoTM is a compact, passively Q-switched diode-pumped solid-state laser which emits pulsed laser radiation at the eye-safe wavelength of 1535nm with a pulse duration of 3-5ns and peak power > 2kW. The laser operates in single longitudinal mode, emitting a high quality beam with stable characteristics across a wide operating range.

By making use of microchip technology and hermetically sealing the laser in a compact package measuring only 50×68×21 mm3, the laser is specified to withstand temperatures from -20 to +70 degrees C with a shock tolerance of 80 g at 10 ms impact.

The emission of high peak power pulses at the eye-safe, IR wavelength of 1535 nm, from a compact, hermetically sealed rugged package with low overall consumption (typically < 10W) makes the Cobolt TangoTM an ideal laser for applications in range finding, remote sensing and surveillance.
