Cobolt has released the Class 3B model of the single frequency Cobolt Rumba 1,064nm. The laser is now available with up to 400mW CW output power on the 04-01 series, offering a more compact footprint than the 05-01 series. It is suited to advanced analytical applications requiring stable single frequency operation such as Raman spectroscopy.
The Rumba is a continuous-wave single frequency DPSS laser operating at a fixed wavelength in a TEM00 beam (M2<1.1). A proprietary laser cavity design provides low noise performance of typically <0.25 per cent rms (over 20Hz-20MHz and over 10-40°C), a narrow spectral linewidth of <1MHz and immunity to optical feedback.
The laser is manufactured using Cobolt’s HTCure Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package, providing a high level of immunity to varying environmental conditions and exceptional reliability. Lasers built using the HTCure Technology have shown to withstand multiple 60G mechanical shocks in operation with no degraded performance. They can be exposed to extreme temperatures (>100°C), and are insensitive to pressure and humidity.
A compact controller (CDRH or OEM) is supplied with the laser and can be remotely accessed for operation and monitoring of the system over RS-232 or USB interfaces.
