The Vanguard™ UV is an advanced diode pumped solid state laser that has beens pecifically designed to produce ultra-low noise, quasi-CW ultraviolet output. It delivers exceptional TEM00 mode quality, outstanding long-term stability, and long lifetime. This rugged OEM laser uses cutting edge mode-locking technology to deliver 1000 mW of quasi-CW, UV output at 355 nm. With a pulse repetition rate of 80 MHz , this quasi-CW, aircooled laser offers a superior solid-state alternative to replace power hungry CW ion lasers in a number of OEM applications. Delivering ultra-low noise, near diffraction limited TEM00 output in a rugged industrial platform, the Vanguard laser is intended for both OEM and research applications.
ProLite® series diode module pumps the laser head. As
with all Spectra-Physics diode-pumped solid state
lasers, the diode is located remotely in the power supply.
This makes replacement of the single diode module a
simple task requiring no optical alignment of the laser head.
