Cobolt Jive

Cobolt, a Swedish manufacturer of low-noise DPSS lasers, has released a higher power model of its Jive 561nm solid-state laser. The Cobolt Jive, available from Laser Lines, provides up to 150mW CW output power from a small package and is perfectly suited for power demanding fluorescence analysis applications, such as spinning-disc or TIRF confocal microscopy and cell sorting.

Built into a hermetically sealed compact (50 x 50mm) package using HTCure technology for extreme robustness, the Cobolt Jive is a single longitudinal mode laser, with very low noise (<0.3 per cent rms), narrow spectral line width (typically <30MHz) and exceptionally high beam quality (M2 <1.1).

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 (>100oC), and are insensitive to pressure and humidity.

The laser controller is an ultra-compact unit in either a CDRH version or OEM version. It is built on a robust platform with mounting holes for convenient installation and optimum heat dissipation. It is remotely controllable for operation and monitoring of the laser system via digital (RS-232) or analogue interfaces.
