ER902 Microlaser from MegaWatt Lasers
The ER902 µLaser from MegaWatt Lasers is a Q-switched, Diode Pumped Solid-State Laser (DPSSL) with Er:glass as the gain element. The laser generates pulses at a wavelength of 1.535 µm with 100 kW peak power and a pulse duration of 4 ns. Typical repetition rate is 10 Hz, but the laser may be operated at kHz rates for a few pulses. The output mode is TEM000 — single transverse and axial mode. The size is 9 mm diameter x 28 mm length. Typically, these lasers are used for remote sensing applications such as Time-Of-Flight (TOF) ranging.
MegaWatt Lasers manufactures best-in-class laser pump chambers (pump cavities) for a variety of applications covering all solid-state wavelengths. Their pump chamber designs, which feature high efficiency diffuse reflectors and symmetric radial cooling, provide unsurpassed performance, reliability and leak integrity to meet the demanding needs of your laser system design. They maintain an inventory of standard pump chambers for immediate delivery. Their modular design allows for cost effective custom solutions. In addition, MegaWatt Lasers has developed Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) technology under numerous supported R&D efforts. They also specialize in eye-safe laser technology.
