Pearl solid-state laser

nLight has expanded its Pearl solid-state laser platform into wavelengths 879 to 888nm, with electrical-optical efficiency greater than 50 per cent, and power levels up to 100W.

Power levels up to 100W are available at 879, 885 and 888nm with nLight's proprietary PowerCore fibre at 400 or 600µm. Operating efficiencies of 50 to 60 per cent result in significantly less heat.

Using Pearl with upper-state pumping of Nd:YAG or Nd:YVO4 allows the design and manufacture of air-cooled diode-pumped solid-state laser systems. Due to Pearl's unique single emitter architecture, narrow spectral widths of less than 3.5nm full width at half maximum (FWHM) can be maintained.

nLight's nXLT diode technology enables long lifetime, even under harsh industrial conditions with repeated on/off cycles, and nLight's PowerCore fibre provides consistent beam quality and power transmission independent of fibre layout and movement.

The Pearl solid-state laser pump series can be optimised for the user's specific needs, with power levels varying from 20 to 100W, and various fibre core size and length options.
