Pranalytica has introduced a 2W version of its continuous wave, room temperature, fully package, turnkey quantum cascade laser system, Model 1101-46, which is ideal for defence and homeland security applications.
The new 2W version maintains the good to excellent output beam quality of the earlier Pranalytica systems, and offers potentially lower cost per watt. The 2W system is turnkey and fully lab-tested with several thousand hours of in-house testing time. As before, the laser package is hermetically-sealed for reliable operation in adverse environments and the laser output is collimated using an internal lens system. In addition to IRCM, the Pranalytica 2W QCL system may be used to enhance various other applications such as lidar (light detection and ranging) and freespace optical communications.
