Pulsed lasers for LIBS and photoacoustics

Share this on social media:

Cobolt has introduced the Cobolt Tor XS, a high-performance Q-switched laser at 1,064nm and 532nm, with 100uJ/pulse and 50uJ/pulse respectively. The Cobolt Tor XS is intended for photoacoustic microscopy applications as well as integration into hand-held or portable instruments for laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS).

Using the same laser cavity design as its big brother, Cobolt Tor, the Cobolt Tor XS provides a  combination for its size of kHz repetition rates, short pulse lengths (<3ns) 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 1kHz while all control electronics are fully integrated. The compact footprint of the complete system measures only 50 x 29 x 21.4mm and weighs <100g.

The lasers are manufactured using Cobolt’s HTCure Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package, which provides a high level of immunity to varying environmental conditions and excellent reliability.
