LaserTune™: Widely Tunable Mid-Infrared Laser Source
LaserTune is a pulsed mid-infrared (IR), widely tunable laser source based on a next generation Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL). The fully integrated LaserTune system is a single box solution which has the widest tuning range of any mid-IR QCL laser source available.
The system features a continuous tuning range of ~5-14 µm or configurable in 250 cm-1 increments to suit specific end-user needs. The source can be programmed to emit pulses from 50 to 500 nsec with a repetition rate up to ~1 MHz while maintaining a duty-cycle up to ~5%. The pulses can be internally triggered at regular intervals and a sync-out signal available. The pulses can also be triggered from an external source and the system enforces duty-cycle and pulse limits.
The 2 x 4 mm output beam can be tuned to a specific wavelength, or can be programmed to step scan across the whole range. LaserTune offers fast tuning, excellent tuning resolution, and narrow, stable linewidths. As a fully integrated and embedded system, LaserTune offers full control via a USB connection to a computer. LaserTune comes with its own LaserTune Software and can also be remotely controlled via a socket interface providing the flexibility to be used with various lab automation software such as LabView, Matlab and C.
LaserTune's wide tuning range, flexible tuning, and superb beam quality make it ideal for high performance laboratory applications, and its compact size allows for easy integration into any system or instrument.
