The Gigashot HE laser system is a high energy, short pulse diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) Nd:YAG laser system. High efficiency, ultra-long life quasi-continuous-wave (QCW) pump diodes allows the laser to operate for many billions of shots. The laser uses a Master Oscillator-Power Amplifier (MOPA) configuration to obtain a near field flat top beam profile. The laser is specified to deliver 4 J at 1064 nm; Injection seeding of the oscillator is optional.
The Gigashot laser features long life laser diode bars and is ideally suited for use in scientific, industrial, and medical applications. The laser is supplied with a 2 year/10,000 operating hour diode warranty.
Customized versions of the Gigashot are also available (including oscillator/amplifier configurations for increased pulse energy).
