Cobolt Odin series

Cobolt, Swedish manufacturer of high performance DPSS lasers, has released the Cobolt Odin series of compact and tunable mid-IR lasers. 

The series are industrial-grade mid-IR laser sources based on a fully contained temperature tunable Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) and integrated pump laser, in a compact footprint of 125 x 70 x 45mm. Periodically poled nonlinear optical crystals are used for efficient and spectrally flexible generation of mid-IR emission from 2-5μm, at 10kHz, with less than 5ns pulse widths, a linewidth of less than 1.5nm and tunable up to 50nm. 

Applications for the lasers include trace gas analysis in pollution control for the petrochemical, automotive and energy production industries.
