Aculight Corporation, a developer of innovative laser technologies, has expanded its family of pulsed fiber laser products with the addition of the Model PF1550-36. Operating in the eye-safe region near 1.54-mm, the Model PF1550-36 delivers diffraction-limited, short-pulse output over a wide repetition rate range. The laser is appropriate for applications such as laser range finding, range-gated imaging, sensing and micromachining.

The Model PF1550-36 can generate 3- to 5-ns pulses at repetition rates between 20 kHz and 1 MHz, depending on user requirements. It produces 4 watts of average power at repetition rates over 50 kHz and peak powers in excess of 15 kW. The unit's 1.54-mm output from the delivery fiber is less than 1.5 times diffraction limited. The Model PF1550-36 is a fully contained laser that measures just 12 x 13 x 3.5 inches.

The Model PF1550-36's constant average output power, high peak power, and tunable repetition rate make it ideal for applications such as range-gated imaging where users can operate at a high repetition rate to produce very detailed short-range images, or at a lower repetition rate but higher peak power to access longer ranges. In addition, the laser's near diffraction-limited output makes it attractive for applications such as micromachining, where extremely small spot size is critical.

Designed with maximum flexibility and operator convenience in mind, the Model PF1550-36 can be rack-mounted or used bench-top. Users can tailor the laser's pulse shape for best results in their respective applications. Power levels can be remote-controlled with a PC via RS-485 port.
