Cobolt Products

NEW! Cobolt Monitor Software

An easy to use software interface designed for adjusting the laser power (requires communications cable CAB-RS232, contact you local distributor for more information).

CW UV-Visible-NIR

All Cobolt UV-visible lasers are continuous-wave (CW) diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSS laser)devices operating at fixed and precise wavelengths. The lasers are manufactured using Cobolt’s prorietary HTCureTM Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package, which provides a very high level of immunity to varying environmental conditions and ensures exceptional reliability and lifetime. Available wavelengths are 355, 457, 473, 491, 515, 532, 561, 594 and 1064 nm. Cobolt also offers a unique dual-line DPSS-laser emitting at 491 and 532 nm simultaneously in one single beam.

The Cobolt UV-visible-NIR lasers are single-mode lasers with high level of stability, low noise, very narrow spectral bandwidth and a perfect quality beam over a wide range of operation temperatures. The lasers are based on proprietary PPKTP technolgy which provides improved power efficiency, large wavelength flexibility and multi-line emission possibility

Light Engine Capabilities

Cobolt is dedicated to working with and supporting our customers in expanding their current light engine performance. The Cobolt Dual Combiner offers customers a permanently aligned combination of two Cobolt wavelengths in a compact and robust package. The combiner is intended for use as a drop-in Ar+ laser replacement or as an option for use in existing light engines as an easy and economical solution to expand the number of wavelengths offered. Additional options such as fiber pigtailing and modulation are intended to further compliment and enhance light engine capabilities.

Pulsed IR

Cobolt’s pulsed IR lasers are passively Q-switched microchip lasers emitting a train of optical pulses at 1535 nm. The design is based on proprietary µ-chip technology with Er:Yb-doped glass and Co-doped Spinel. The lasers emit ns pulses with high peak power at an eye-safe wavelength. A very robust package enable operation and storage in very demanding environmental conditions. The lasers are used as an ultimately compact, robust and cost-efficient light source in equipment for range finding, 3D scanning and environmental monitoring.

High Power CW Nd:YAG Laser

Laser Congfiguration:

Laser Head

At the heart of the system is U.S. Laser‘s unique laser head. The laser head is a single lamp, single ellipse, close-coupled design, optimized for maximum pumping efficiency.  The design produces up to 700 watts with a small diameter (6.3 mm) rod.  The single lamp reduces consumable costs, while the high efficiency reduces the energy and cooling requirements as well.

The laser head design allows for easy cascading of heads, in a series periodic resonator.  Single and two-head systems are standard, and four-head systems are available.

An important feature of the design is that it is tunable: the output power can be smoothly varied from <20% to 100% of rated power without any anomalies in the beam characteristics.

U.S. Laser can also provide high brightness variants of the basic lasers, where the maximum power has been slightly reduced to significantly improve the beam quality.

Power Supply –
Cooling Console
             

The electronics and cooling system are housed in a caster-mounted console.

The closed loop cooling system features a proportioning valve controller to maintain constant head temperature, and a high efficiency heat exchanger for connection to external cooling water/chiller.

The electronics include a high efficiency power supply, and a control unit with status monitoring and protection.  All of these lasers may be computer controlled via digital and analog inputs.  Optional IEEE 488/RS232/RS422 computer interfaces are available.

QSL- Series 532nm, 1053nm, 1064nm & 1319nm Q-SWITCHED LASERS with 1-15mJ Pulse Energy

All solid state Q-switched lasers at 532/1053/1064/1319 nm have the features of high peak power, high repetition rate, and short pulse duration, which is widely used in industry (marking on the diamond or stone), teaching nonlinear Optics, experiments of generating 532nm, 355nm, or 266nm laser, fiber communication, and etc.

Femtosecond system

The femtosecond laser is the main instrument for ultra fast initiation of photo-chemical reactions. It is phase locked to the x-rays and used for single-bunch Laue diffraction, stroboscopic experiments up to 1 kHz (diffraction and wide-angle scattering) and to trigger a jitter-free femtosecond x-ray streak camera.
