The LQ929 is a series of compact lamp-pumped Nd:YAG lasers built under the scheme master-oscillator one-pass amplifier and having uncompromising combination of the main parameters: high output power, exceptional beam quality and minimum laser head and power supply dimensions.

The master oscillator of the LQ929 laser series, just as that of the LQ529 has ring cavity. The principle of operation of the ring cavity scheme and utilisation of pump chambers with high-efficiency diffuse reflectors provide output laser radiation with homogeneous beam profile and exceptional stability of output energy and spatial radiation parameters.

Typical beam profile at 1064 nm. Near field

All the critical components of the laser are thermally stabilised which in combination with vibration-proof design ensures unsurpassed long-term stability of output radiation. The efficient thermostats used in the LQ929 ensure warm-up time of less than 10 min.

To reduce your time expenses on routine service of the LQ929 we provided flash lamp life time of more than 30 million pulses and foreseen easy and quick procedure of its replacement.

Closed-loop water-to-air cooling system is integrated into a compact single-phase laser power supply which can be controlled both from PC and via the remote control unit.

Harmonic Generators

In the standard configuration the LQ929 laser has built-in SHG. Upon your request the SHG, THG, FHG and FiHG can be supplied as external stand-alone modules.

OPO

Upon your request the LQ929 laser can be supplemented with an optical parametric oscillator of the LP600 series. In such a combination you will have a source of continuously tuneable laser radiation within a wide spectral range (from UV to IR).

The LZ221 Raman Shifter

Compact and easy to adjust and operate Raman shifter efficiently converts 1064 nm or 532 nm output radiation into several additional laser lines within the visible and IR range.

IR converters

The IR converters are very compact devices with built-in OPO operating in the NCPM mode. The range of IR converters are laser sources providing fixed output wavelengths from 1.5 m to 3.5 m.

Power attenuator

The laser can be supplemented with a variable power attenuator. Upon your choice it can be either a unit optimised for operation at one wavelength or an achromatic attenuator intended for simultaneous attenuation of all the laser harmonics from 266 nm to 1064 nm.

Articulated arm

A number of applications require quick and flexible laser beam delivery to the research object or the place of measurements. For this an optical fiber can be used but only for delivery of low pulse energy radiation (5-20 mJ). To deliver high-power radiation we offer to supplement the laser with a mirror articulated arm. To minimise losses of laser pulse energy we use special dielectric mirrors with high reflection coefficient simultaneously for 1064 nm and 532 nm.
