Mid-infrared Lasers from Daylight Solutions
Daylight Solutions has appointed Coherent Scientific as its distributor for Australia and New Zealand.
Daylight designs and manufactures tuneable mid-infrared lasers based on the company's External Cavity Quantum Cascade Laser (ECqcL) technology. The lasers are available as CW or pulsed with centre wavelengths from 3.25μm to 10.8μm and tuning ranges up to 2.4μm. The lasers have narrow linewidth
(1cm-1) and peak power on the order of hundreds of milliwatts.
The new MIRcat product integrates several lasers into a single unit to provide seamless tuning over an even wider range – up to 6μm.
Installation and operation of the lasers is straightforward with no special alignment or other procedures required. The lasers can be operated right “out of the box” in less than 30 minutes.
Applications include molecular spectroscopy and imaging, multi-species detection (eg standoff explosives detection), combustion diagnostics and illumination.
