DPSS Applications

DPSS Lasers in the 21st Century

Extreme Lasers is an industry leader in high reliability, diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers for Scientific Research, Life & Health Sciences, Aerospace & Defense, Photovoltaics, Industrial Manufacturing, Semiconductors, and Microelectronics markets. Extreme Lasers' continuous wave (CW) and quasi-continuous wave (Quasi-CW) lasers are built for 24/7 hands-off, reliable operation and low cost of ownership. With a broad selection spanning ultraviolet (UV) to infrared (IR) wavelengths, power levels from 1mW to 20,000mW, and CW and mode-locked quasi-CW systems, Extreme Lasers has the right laser solution for your most demanding applications.

Key Advantages

High electrical-to-optical conversion efficiency
Good laser beam quality (M2~1.1)
Stable output laser power ± 1%
Low maintenance or maintenance-free
Long diode lifetime – typical to 10,000hrs
Compact in size

Diode-pumped VS. Diode Lasers

DPSS and diode lasers are two of the most common types of solid-state lasers. However, both types have their advantages and disadvantages. DPSS lasers generally have a higher beam quality and can reach very high powers while maintaining a relatively good beam quality. Because the crystal pumped by the diode acts as its own laser, the quality of the output beam is independent of that of the input beam. In comparison, diode lasers can only reach a few hundred milliwatts unless they operate in multiple transverse mode. Such multi-mode lasers have a larger beam diameter and a greater divergence, which makes them less desirable**
