Single Stage DPSS Amplifier

Unilase has launched a compact single-stage laser amplifier that can scale-up low power seed lasers to many Watts of laser power.

Low power IR lasers, in CW or pulsed (ps to ns) mode, can have output power scaled-up by 10,000. Typically a 1mW laser can be amplified to >4W and a 300mW input beam amplified to >18W. The mini-slab DPSS design and scalable architecture offers extremely high gain and high average power output with excellent beam quality. In combination with a pulsed seed laser, efficient conversion of the amplified laser into the green and the UV is achievable.

Applications include test and measurement of laser systems, higher throughput production of micromachining and marking, scientific research and Lidar.
