«I am with the institute of Laser-Physics of the Hamburg University. The research profile of our group is related mainly with development of new materials for efficient solid state lasers. For this purpose a lot of stationary and time resolved spectroscopic measurements are necessary in order to determine parameters relevant for laser operation and to identify possible loss mechanisms. Furthermore, first laser characterization of this material is carried out by using commercially available tunable laser systems in the continuous wave and pulsed mode as excitation sources. Since several years among other things we are using for such measurements an OPO system (optical parametric oscillator) produced by the SOLAR LS company. This OPO operates reliable with good output stability, beam quality and pointing stability. Furthermore, the OPO is characterized by a large tuning range with comparatively high pulse energy also still close the limit of the tuning curves. Due to our positive experience we did order a second OPO system form SOLAR LS and received it in May 2005. The new OPO is equipped additionally with a frequency doubling unit for the signal wave. Thus, the tuning range is extended into the UV range. Referring my experiences with OPO laser systems from SOLAR LS to date I can recommend them as devices which are easy to operate with high reliability suitable for many scientific, medical and industrial applications. Last but not least it should be mentioned that there is quite an optimum proportion between quality and price.»
«I work at Eye Clinic, Leipzig University. Our laboratory develops different methods of diagnostics and therapy of cancers using lasers as light sources.
We have been using the lasers of SOLAR LS company for about 10 years already. We started our cooperation by purchasing a laser system comprising a CW-Q-Sw Nd:YAG and Ti:Sapphire lasers. This equipment has been in constant use ever since and proved to be highly efficient and reliable.
Since then, we have worked with different kinds of SOLAR LS products, such as Nd:YAG laser systems with Harmonic Generators, OPO systems, Ti:Sapphire lasers and others and have always been satisfied with their performance.
As SOLAR Laser Systems keeps developing new laser models to meet the demands of the modern market, follows new scientific investigations and applies new technologies in its products, we can perform different kinds of experiments and develop new methods of treatment using new SOLAR LS devices. We are also satisfied with the professional level and term of service maintenance provided by SOLAR LS.
It should also be noted that SOLAR LS is indeed customer-oriented and always provides quick and efficient feed-back.
So, I strongly recommend to use the equipment manufactured by this company.»
«Область моих научных интересов – исследования атмосферы методами лазерного зондирования. В качестве одного из лазерных источников мы используем Nd:YAG лазер фирмы SOLAR LS, модель LQ 514. Измерения характеристик тропосферного и стратосферного аэрозоля осуществляются на длине волны зондирования 532 нм. Для подобных измерений эта длина волны является унифицированной на большинстве лидарных обсерваторий мировой сети, что позволяет сравнивать оптические характеристики аэрозольного слоя атмосферы в различных географических точках наблюдений. Энергия импульсов излучения лазера 150 мДж на длине волны 532 нм обеспечивает регистрацию обратно отраженных атмосферой лидарных сигналов приемным зеркалом диаметром 0,3 м. вплоть до высот 50 км, т.е. измеряется вся аэрозольная толща атмосферы. Приемное зеркало диаметром 2,2 м. одновременно позволяет регистрировать сигналы обратного упругого молекулярного рассеяния на длине волны 532 нм в высотном диапазоне 30-80 км и сигналы комбинационного (Raman) рассеяния от молекулярного азота на длине волны 607 нм в высотном интервале 10-30 км. Это дает возможность восстанавливать непрерывный профиль вертикального распределения температуры для высотного диапазона ~(10-75) км.
Лазер LQ 514 эксплуатируется нами с 2000 года, в среднем по 4 часа 2-3 раза в неделю. Лазер показал высокую надежность в работе и простоту в эксплуатации. Мы проводим только необходимые регламентные работы по обслуживанию. Лазер эксплуатируется как в стационарных условиях, так и в условиях проведения экспедиционных измерений, в т.ч. на борту теплохода.»
«I am leading a small research group. At the moment, my team consists of 3 PhD students, one post-doc, a technician and myself. Our research concerns optical and photonic properties of semiconductor and semiconductor-derived materials, and currently focuses on Er-doped Si nanostructures and GaN layers. In our investigations laser equipment plays a crucial role. Among a variety of lasers we use also two systems manufactured by Solar LS.
The first comprises an OPO pumped with the third harmonics of the Nd:YAG and provides nanosecond light pulses in the visible to near-infrared (2.2 mm) range. In the 1.5 mm wavelength, which is of special interest to our studies, it generated up to 4.5 mJ energy per pulse. The system has been commissioned 4 years ago and is in constant use ever since. It is a truly reliable laboratory workhorse. The second machine has been recently installed and is still in the running-in period. It is a novel and rather unique configuration consisting of a high power Nd:YAG operating at the basal frequency, and double OPO system with a mid-infrared output of the target wavelength range between 9 and 17 μm. In order to perform experiments in that range we had to go to the free-electron laser facility. Now we hope to be able to perform these experiments at home, using our new table-top system from SOLAR LS.»
