Quantum Composers

Quantum Composers has unveiled a mid-infrared laser featuring the new Stable Optical Parametric Oscillator (SOPO) technology. The MIR Lasers are in production and wil be available for pre-order starting in May.

This Mid-IR Laser was created in partnership with Bridger Photonics Lasers and features a small form factor combined with robust components to create a laser with high output energy and reduced shot-to-shot energy jitter.

As medical and material based studies continue to grow in precision, labs throughout the world are faced with the problem of insuring precise control of delivered energy to avoid damaged samples and noisy results. In response to these dilemmas the MIR laser was designed with an ultra-stable, single longitudinal mode resonator coupled to a SOPO. The diode pumped, single-mode operation enables very low pulse-to-pulse fluctuations, with good beam pointing stability. Typical shot-to-shot energy fluctuation is less than 0.5% RMS of the mean pulse energy. This advance will be key in many medical applications, LIDAR, LIBS and other spectroscopy projects where the energy and output stability are crucial.

As compared to other Mid-Range Infrared lasers in its class, the new MIR is compact, robust and features an affordable price tag. The MIR Series Mid-Infrared Laser delivers >1 mJ,
