Wedge family has been fully renewed in terms of performances and available models.
Wedge HB is available both at 1064nm and at 532 nm; pulse energy reaches 4 mJ in 1 ns .
Wedge-HF and Wedge-XF are now available in a very compact unit, only 8x9x19 cm, both at 1064nm and 532nm. Repetition rate can reach 100 kHz and pulses can be shorter than 500 ps.
pWedge represents a flexible platform for customized units where high power amplifiers can be added to Wedge-HF and Wedge-XF in order to fit the most demanding industrial and aerospace applications.
Based on a proprietary fast Q-Switching technology, this compact sealed and monolithic diode pumped lasers are insensitive to vibrations and harsh environments.
They have been designed for OEM applications like micro machining of hard and soft materials, specialty marking, glass and crystals engraving, LIDAR, LIBS, Spectroscopy and medical diagnostics. High output peak power, with relatively low energy and heat generation, allows efficient ablation and non-linear interaction with most materials. The compact and lightweight package represents a great benefit in LIDAR and other aerospace applications, while short pulses give extremely precise time-of-flight measurements.
Second Harmonic (532 nm output) and wavelength conversion option widen the product application range.
