BRICS project Broadly Tuneable Interband Cascade Laser Source for Gas Analysers The project revolves around the development of Interband Cascade Laser (ICL) broadgain sources and external cavities configurations.   The aim of this project is to develop the prototype of a tuneable light source specifically adapted for ethanol, aldehydes and C1 to C9 hydrocarbon spectroscopy which will […]

TC-3 Temperature Controller

TC-3 Temperature ControllerTC-3 Alpes can provide the TC-3, a temperature controller pre-set for usage with a LLH or HHL housing but which is also a versatile unit which can be programmed by the user for use with a variety of NTC and RTD sensor, and can power a Peltier cooler with up to 5.0A of […]


Submounts Laser chips from Alpes Lasers can be mounted on a variety of submounts. The drawing for each submount can be found below. The NS submount is a standard copper submount that can be mounted in a HHL or LLH housing or a variety of third party housings. The NS submount is typically attached mechanically […]

Laser Laboratory Housing

Laser Laboratory HousingLLH The LLH is the perfect housing for research applications. With easy laser exchange and compatibility with Alpes Lasers’ Starter Kit, it is the most versatile housing available. Peltier cooled laser-stage inside, minimal temperature <-30°C Laser power supply by low impedance line from LDD100 Anti Reflection Coated (3.5 to 12 µm) ZnSe window. […]

Packaging in TO3 housing

Packaging in TO3 housing Pulsed lasers are available in TO3 cans, which are smaller and less power-intensive than the HHL packages. TO3 cans are sealed and the beam is collimated. Size : 38.8 mm x 25.4 mm x 20.5 mm Small-size, low dissipation for OEM applications Pulsed lasers or low-dissipation CW laser with < 3 […]

Packaging in HHL housing

Packaging in HHL housing   Packaging in HHL housing The HHL housing is a sealed collimated housing for CW or pulsed lasers. It is ideal for short-run integration and use in difficult environments. The HHL housing is much smaller than the LLH and is completely sealed. The HHL contains a Peltier junction and a NTC […]

HHL Heatsink plate

HHL Heatsink plateHHL Heatsink The HHL Heatsink is a water-cooling circuit that can be used to mount the HHL and ensures it operates with ideal thermal performances. While the HHL can be mounted on third-party or proprietary heatsinks (including passive heatsinks) the performances are only guaranteed if the heatsink allows keeping the backplate at +20°C with a 0.1°C/W […]

S-3 High Power Pulse Generator

S-3 High Power Pulse Generator The S-3 High Power Pulse Generator is designed to drive devices requiring short or long pulses of high current with a non-linear response, including optical devices such as high power quantum cascade lasers, infrared laser diodes, LEDs or electronic devices such as Gunn diodes or high speeds transistors and rectifiers.  The S-3 […]

Closed Cycle Cryostat

Closed Cycle CryostatStandalone THz System   The closed-cycle cryostat is a silent, portable, plug-in-the-wall, cryogenic-liquid free source of THz light powered by a Stirling engine. Dimensions : 200 x 250 x 350 mm  Weight: 17 Kg  Max. total power consumption: 300W  Cool-down time to operation ready (65K): 15 minutes  Minimum operation temperature – cold side: 65K Acoustic […]

S-2 QCL Pulser

S-2 QCL Pulser The S-2 QCL Pulser is designed to provide fast, high impedance current pulses to non-linear current driven devices such as quantum cascade lasers. The generated pulses have a rise time between 5 and 15 ns.  The S-2 pulser is controlled directly through a computer terminal when the S-2 is connected by a […]
