The Patara-HP PIV dual oscillator diode pumped solid-state (DPSS) laser system is purpose built for Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) applications. The independently controllable laser oscillators can be configured with Nd:YAG for high average power or Nd:YLF for high pulse energy applications. The Nd:YAG configuration produces output powers of >200 W per oscillator at 532 nm with a 10 kHz pulse repetition rate while the Nd:YLF configuration produces pulse energies of >50 mJ per oscillator at 527 nm with a 1 kHz pulse repetition rate. Both configurations provide the excellent beam quality and shot-to-shot stability required to produce high quality repeatable light sheets for optimum illumination.
The two laser oscillators and beam combination optics share a common housing for excellent mechanical stability, ease of set-up and use. Each oscillator can be triggered independently (internally or externally) providing end users with maximum adjustability of laser pulse timing.
