Cobolt has launched the Cobolt Tor XS, a high performance Q-switched laser at 1,064nm designed for OEM integration into hand-held or portable instruments targeting LIBS applications.
Operating at 1,064nm and using the same laser cavity design as its big brother, Cobolt Tor, it provides a combination for its size of high pulse repetition rates (>1kHz), high average power (up to 50mW), short pulse lengths (<3 ns) and exceptional pulse-to-pulse stability. In addition, the emission is generated in a TEM00 beam and can be externally triggered from single pulse up to 1 kHz. The compact footprint measures only 50 x 29 x 21.4mm and weighs <100 g.
The lasers are manufactured using Cobolt’s HTCure Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package, which provides a very 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 without any sign of degraded performance. They can be exposed to extreme temperatures (>100°C), and are insensitive to pressure and humidity.
