Cobolt Rumba 05-01
17 May 2010
Cobolt has introduced the Cobolt Rumba, a high performance DPSS laser that operates at 1,064nm with up to 2W CW output power. It is perfectly suited to demanding industrial applications such as high resolution Raman spectroscopy, interferometry and flow dynamics. Available on the same platform is also the Cobolt Zouk with 10mW CW at 355nm and the Cobolt Samba with up to 1000mW CW at 532nm.
The Cobolt Rumba 05-01 is a continuous-wave single-frequency DPSS laser operating at 1,064nm with up to 2W output power in a perfect quality TEM00 beam (M2<1.1). A new cavity design provides ultra-low noise performance of typically <0.1 per cent rms (over 20Hz-20MHz and over 10-40°C) and a narrow spectral linewidth of <1MHz.
The laser is manufactured using Cobolt's HTCure Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package (115 x 70 x 45mm), which provides a very high level of immunity to varying environmental conditions and exceptional reliability. Lasers built using the HTCure Technology have shown to withstand multiple 60G mechanical shocks in operation without any sign of degraded performance. They can be exposed to extreme temperatures (>100°C), and are insensitive to pressure and humidity.
The laser is supplied with a compact controller (CDRH or OEM), which can be remotely accessed for operation and monitoring of the laser system over digital (RS-232) or analogue interfaces.
