Quantum Cascade Lasers
High Peak Power Source
Alpes Lasers introduces its new high peak power sources. Based on a unique gain-guided design, these Quantum Cascade Lasers are optimized for emitting short pulses from 20 ns to 1000 ns with minimum peak power of 20 W, or ~5 microjoules per pulse. Available on submount or in a HHL package with a dedicated driver, these lasers can be used for free-space optical communications, LIDAR applications and IR countermeasures.
You can read more about the technology behind these high peak power devices in this Optics Express paper.
