Tor XS Q-switched laser for LIBS

Share this on social media:

Cobolt, a part of Hübner Photonics, has introduced the Cobolt Tor XS, a Q-switched laser at 1,064nm and 532nm, with 100 millijoules per pulse and 50 millijoules per pulse. The Cobolt Tor XS is intended for photoacoustic microscopy applications and integration into hand-held or portable instruments for laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS).

The Cobolt Tor XS provides a combination for its size of kilohertz repetition rates, short pulse lengths and pulse-to-pulse stability. The emission is generated in a TEM00 beam and can be externally triggered from a single pulse up to 1kHz, whilst all control electronics are fully integrated. The compact footprint of the complete system measures 50 x 29 x 21.4mm and weighs less than 100g.

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