From the HÜBNER Photonics Cobolt product line comes the Cobolt Tor™ XS, a compact high performance Q-switched laser at 1064 nm and 532 nm, with 100 uJ/pulse and 50 uJ/pulse respectively. The Cobolt Tor™ XS is intended for photoacoustic microscopy applications as well as integration into hand-held or portable instruments for laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS).
Using the same sophisticated laser cavity design as its big brother, Cobolt Tor™, the Cobolt Tor™ XS provides a unique combination for its size of kHz repetition rates, short pulse lengths (<3 ns) and exceptional pulse-to-pulse stability. In addition, the emission is generated in a TEM00 beam and can be externally triggered from single pulse up to 1 kHz whilst all control electronics are fully integrated. The compact footprint of the complete system measures only 50 x 29 x 21.4 mm and weighs <100 g.Posted on
