Daylight Solutions Unicorn II Fixed Wavelength Lasers

Daylight Solutions is pleased to present the next generation of fixed-wavelength lasers: The Unicorn II Series

Daylight Solutions

The reinvented Unicorn™ II fixed-wavelength laser contains a series of innovations for improved performance. A more robust and stable resonator structure means better linewidth and wavelength stability as environmental conditions vary. The new HFQD control electronics (High-Fidelity QCL Drive) allow for increased repetition rates and longer pulses while providing more protection for the gain chip. HFQD also includes an improved modulation circuit offering wider bandwidth of modulation frequencies from DC to 2MHz. More stability, more control, more robust – the new Unicorn™ II.
