The single line laser light sources are specially designed to be used with our photomanipulation devices of the UGA‑42 series or other imaging devices of Rapp OptoElectronic implemented in our SysCon software. Based on your application, you can choose between continuous wave or pulsed laser light sources, different wavelengths and power outputs. Each laser system includes a built-in mechanical shutter and an interlock circuit. Furthermore, all laser light sources can be modulated via the SysCon software enabling the entire functionality of the laser light source. Triggering by external devices gives you the possibility to use these laser systems stand-alone as well.
Broad Range of Wavelengths
The continuous wave single line laser light sources cover a broad spectral range of wavelengths, ranging from UV (down to 355 nm) to IR (up to 1470 nm) with a maximum power output of up to 300 mW. Pulsed laser light sources are available in the UV range (down to 266 nm) and visible range (up to 532 nm) with a peak power of up to 42 µJ and a repetition rate of up to 1 kHz. Thus, you can choose from an immense variety of laser light sources to fit your experimental requirements and applications.
Modularity and Flexibility
Our single line laser light sources are specially optimized for the needs of your daily research, including the use of our modular UGA-42 series and AiWon series. A broad range of single-mode and multi-mode laser fibers for the application with continuous wave lasers or the direct coupling of the pulsed lasers offer a high flexibility for your experimental setup.
All our laser light sources are fully integrated in our photomanipulation software, named SysCon, allowing both easy configuration and use within photomanipulation systems. Furthermore, they come with TTL compatible digital/ analog modulation capabilities for fast and direct hardware modulation by external devices (e.g. trigger-boards).
