Laser Quantum has launched the Aziza, 355nm laser, a True CW solid-state laser at 355nm. The laser offers a diffraction limited beam (M2<1.1), TEM00 and powers up to 25mW. Aziza is suited to applications such as lidar, lithography, and fluorescence based bio-analysis and semi-conductor inspection.

The laser has a cavity design which achieves a highly stable, low noise, true CW output with a very narrow bandwidth (20GHz). The system is designed in a compact, robust package with intelligent temperature control mechanisms, eliminating the need for water cooling; this allows for easy installation and integration into OEM systems. 

Other features include power feedback, intuitive controls, a RS232 interface; the power supply features a large LCD screen, and a zero-stress cavity.
