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. […]

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 […]

S-2 QCL Pulser

S-2 QCL Pulser The S-2m 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-2m pulser is controlled directly through a computer terminal when the S-2m is connected by a […]

Liquid Nitrogen Cryogenic Dewar

Liquid Nitrogen Cryogenic DewarLN2 Cryogenic System The LN2 Dewar keeps a QCL laser at a fixed 77 K temperature for 4 hours under usage and > 12 hrs otherwise. The laser itself is kept in a sealed compartment with connectors for the standard QCL Pulser. The laser cannot be changed. The LN2 does not allow […]

Liquid Nitrogen or Liquid Helium cryostat

Liquid Nitrogen or Liquid Helium cryostatLN2/LHe cryogenic system In the LN2/LHe cryostat, the temperature can be controlled from 10 K (when filled with liquid Helium) to room temperature. The laser itself sits on a cold finger wired to a connector for a standard QCL Pulser. A temperature controller is included.   See related products:
