High average power UV PQS microchip lasers by Teem Photonics

Teem Photonics' (Lafayette, CO) passively Q-switched (PQS) ultraviolet (UV) microchip lasers promise a fourfold increase in average power, with peak powers of several KW from pulses just a few hundred picoseconds in duration. The lasers target applications such as laser induced fluorescence (LIF), microdissection, biohazard detection, and the analysis and processing of organic compounds, especially in the life sciences.

The 355nm SNV and 266nm SNU series devices deliver four times the average power of previous, similarly sized lasers. Models such as the 355nm SNV-40F and 266nm SNU-40F achieve this increase by running at higher repetition rates, to 40kHz; others such as the SNV-02E and SNU-02E have higher pulse energies, emitting over 2 µJ per pulse.

Higher Average Power Ultraviolet PQS Microchip Lasers
A fourfold increase in average power has been realized in passively Q-switched (PQS) ultraviolet microchip lasers. These lasers are already widely used for their peak powers of several kilowatts from pulses just a few hundred picoseconds in duration. The latest 355nm SNV and 266nm SNU series PQS UV microchip lasers deliver four times the average power of previous, similarly sized lasers. Models such as the 355nm SNV-40F and 266nm SNU-40F achieve this increase by running at higher repetition rates, to 40kHz; others such as the SNV-02E and SNU-02E have higher pulse energies, emitting over 2 µJ per pulse. Applications for these UV lasers include laser induced fluorescence (LIF), microdissection, biohazard detection, and the analysis and processing of organic compounds, especially in the life sciences.
