Sub-ns Lasers

Active Q-Switch sub-nanosecond pulses with up to 1 J Pulse energy

The patented resonator design of the picolo family enables sub-nanosecond pulse width generation down to 500 picoseconds. Both high repetition rate up to 100 kHz and high energy up to 1 Joule pulse energy are available. This covers a broad range of peak powers usually accessible only by expensive mode-locked lasers. Taking the monolithic mechanical design and using many standard components from the long term evaluated SpitLight series leads to great stability and high flexibility for customized solutions.
