High Power PLD QuickSwitch

30.01.2018

Extremely short pulses for precise measurement


At Photonics West, LASER COMPONENTS presents QuickSwitch – a hybrid 905 nm high-power PLD generating the world’s shortest pulse width of 2.5 ns typical at a pulse frequency of up to 200 kHz. It can be equipped with various storage capacitors, depending on which, it achieves an optical peak power up to 89 Watts. The pulse width of the optical output does not depend on the width of the trigger input pulse. Thus, the device is extremely easy to use.

PLD, high current switch and charge storage capacitor are enclosed in a compact TO56 housing. The high current loop is fully integrated into the housing, which is also equipped with an additional ground pin independent from both the signal and supply returns. This results in a Faraday cage effectively protecting the QuickSwitch and its surroundings from electromagnetic interference.

Laser sources with short pulses and a high pulse frequencies allow for higher resolutions in laser-based distance measurement (LiDAR) and scanners for security and aerospace appliances. With its QuickSwitch PLD, LASER COMPONENTS provides these industries with a compact and cost efficient solution.
