Pulsed lasers for marking, LIBS and photoacoustics

Hũbner Photonics’ Cobolt Tor XE is a high performance compact Q-switched laser at 1,064nm and with 0.5mJ/pulse. It is intended for integration into instruments for marking, laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), as well as photoacoustic microscopy applications.

Using the same laser cavity design as other lasers in the Cobolt Tor Series, the Cobolt Tor XE delivers a unique combination of kHz repetition rates, short pulse lengths (<3.5ns) and excellent pulse-to-pulse stability (jitter <2us) in a TEM00 beam. In addition, through advanced and fullyintegrated control electronics, the emission can be triggered from single pulses up to 1kHz pulse trains, or bursts of pulses using external or internal trigger signals.

The lasers are manufactured using Cobolt’s proprietary 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.
