Laser Quantum has released a 10W model of its Finesse laser, which the company claims has the smallest footprint in its class.
The high power 532nm Finesse series has been well received into the photonics community and is now the most integrated Ti:Sapphire pump source in the world. The Finesse platform now offers powers ranging from 4W to more than 10W.
Finesse 10 has a proprietary cavity design which achieves a highly stable, ultra quiet CW output in a diffraction-limited beam (M2<1.1). The system is packaged in a compact, robust housing with integrated cooling mechanisms allowing for easy installation and integration into OEM systems. The Finesse 10 shares all features common to the Finesse series including a patented cavity which is fibre fed from the pump diode, housed in the power supply. This removes the heat load from the head, enabling stable, low-noise, low spatial-mode operation.
Other features include power feedback, a physical shutter and a zero-stress cavity. The power supply features a large LCD screen, intuitive controls, an RS232 interface and RemoteCal technology allowing access to the system via a modem port.
