LASER COMPONENTS Discontinues Production of PbSe Lasers
LASER COMPONENTS will discontinue production of cryogenically cooled diode lasers in the middle IR range. For our long-time customers in academic circles we will extend this offer to place one last order until March 31, 2012.
We have accompanied lead salt laser technology almost 20 years and made important contributions: increased reliability, demonstration of pulsed operation at room temperature, and the construction of DFB lasers based on lead salt technology.
The necessity of cryogenic cooling in single-mode operation has always hindered wide industrial use. Consequently, TDLS did not achieve its commercial breakthrough until used in the NIR range.
A list of lasers available in stock can be found on LASER COMPONENTS‘ website.
