Benefits of the CEO Laser 6 Joule Nd:YLF Laser Amplifier:
- This PowerPULSE series laser amplifier pumps a one inch Nd:YLF laser rod with more than 150 QCW laser diode bars, and produces more than 5 Joules of gain switched energy and over 6 Joules of stored energy.
- DPSS amplifiers offer several advantages over flashlamp-pumped amplifiers, including: increased electrical-to-optical efficiency, reduced thermal lens strength, improved energy stability and reduced depolarization losses.
- In addition, some DPSS amplifiers can be operated at much higher repetition rates (10s of Hz to 1kHz). The lifetime of the laser diode bars in these amplifiers is > 10 billion pulses which equates to years or decades in many applications, making the amplifier nearly maintenance-free.
