USB-Controlled Picosecond/CW Diode Lasers

The new BDU-SM family picosecond/CW diode lasers are fully controlled and powered via a 3.0 or 2.0 USB interface. Available wavelengths range from 375 nm to 780 nm. The lasers are available with elliptical or circular free-beam output, and with single-mode fiber output. Repetition rates are 20, 50, 80 MHz, or CW. Optical power at 80 MHz is typically 3 to 5 mW. Pulse width is 40 ps to 300 ps, depending on the wavelength version and the selected power.
The lasers feature extraordinarily high timing stability and intensity stability. The optical pulse versus the electrical trigger output shifts by no more than 2 picoseconds over 10 minutes, even immediately after turn on. The power is stable within 1%. No warm up-time is necessary for stable operation. Small size, absence of external components, and easy control of the laser parameters make the laser first choice for quick setup of experiments in a typical laboratory environment.
Please see BDU-SM product description for more information.
