Laser Lines has introduced the Samba single-frequency and ultra-low noise CW laser, produced by Swedish manufacturer Cobolt, capable of generating up to 1W CW output power at 532nm from a very compact package.
Laser Lines states that the Samba provides a significant step in the process of bringing advanced scientific applications, such as high resolution Raman spectroscopy, interferometry, flow dynamics, high-speed fluorescence analysis and laser pumping, to an industrial level. Also available on the same platform is the Cobolt Zouk, featuring 10mW CW power at at 355nm.
The Samba 05-01 is a continuous-wave single-frequency DPSS laser operating at 532nm with up to 1W output power in a near-perfect quality TEM00 beam (M2<1.1). A new cavity design provides ultralow noise performance of typically less than 0.1 per cent rms (over 20Hz-20MHz and over 10-40°C) and a narrow spectral linewidth of less than 1MHz. The use of Cobolt’s PPKTP frequency conversion technology in the laser design also provides unmatched power efficiency. The full laser system consumes less than 66W power.
The laser is manufactured using Cobolt's HTCure technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package (115 x 70 x 45mm), which provides a high level of protection from environmental conditions and exceptional reliability. The laser is supplied with a compact controller (CDRH or OEM), which can be remotely accessed for operation and monitoring of the laser system over digital (RS-232) or analogue interfaces.
