150mW JDSU Xcyte Uniphase laser and power supply.
The JDSU Xcyte series lasers offer the advantages of diode-pumped solid-state lasers. The Xcyte series provide near diffraction-limited beam profile, excellent stability, long lifetime and low amplitude noise in a compact, low cost of ownership package. An ideal substitute for bulky and inefficient HeCd and argon lasers in varied applications such as flow cytometry, microstereolithography and semiconductor wafer inspection.
All Xcyte series lasers feature the DCP "engine" platform and passive mode-locking based on a proven, robust Saturable Bragg Reflector (SBR). Directly coupling the pump light to the crystal means fewer optical surfaces between the diode and the lasing crystal, resulting in lower losses and enhanced efficiency. The high internal reflection of the side-pumped geometry ensures uniform pumping and gain for high mode quality. Passive mode locking with an SBR requires only a single semiconductor device that functions as one cavity mirror, making this technique simpler and more robust than other passive mode locking approaches.
