VALO SF is a single-frequency VECSEL system that combines a unique set of laser properties in a compact package, namely high-power continuous-wave operation (CW, 1–4 W), narrow linewidth (~100 kHz), broad tuning (~10 THz), and excellent beam quality (M2<1.2). The selection of center wavelengths in-stock covers wide spectral range in the near infrared between 910–1260 nm & 1950–2150 nm. Other wavelengths between 1260–1950 nm and in the 700–900 nm range are available on request.
The installation includes a VECSEL head, a control unit and a low-vibration chiller. In addition, the system can be complemented with a second-harmonic conversion setup to visible (shown in the picture). The system is designed for scientific research, and if needed, a skilled laser engineer can service the laser on-site and thus minimize down-time. Similarly a skilled laser engineer can change the wavelength of the laser, if it happens that the original wavelength is no longer needed in the lab, by retrofitting a new gain chip in the system (e.g. within the 910–1260 nm band).
We provide high-power VECSEL gain chips on heatsinks for R&D laser systems in research and industry. The selection of wavelengths in-stock covers wide spectral range in the near infrared between 910–1260 nm & 1950–2150 nm with output powers up to 70 W. Other wavelengths outside this range are also available on request.
