BATOP LogoMCL-1064: Microchip laser 1064 nm

Microchip Laser MCL-1064-150

The microchip laser module delivers short single mode pulses on demand at a wavelength of 1064 nm. The pulse repetition rate is software controlled and can be set between single shot and 500 kHz. The nominal pulse duration is 150 ps.
The MCL-1064-150 contains a microchip with pump diode and a software controlled electronic module. The microchip contains a Nd:YVO4 laser crystal and a semiconductor saturable output coupler.

MCL-1064-150 module description:

  • Compact laser module with pulsed laser radiation at 1064 nm
  • Adjustable repetition rate up to 500 kHz via USB and control program
  • Stand alone mode at (user) preconfigured repetition rate (no software control needed)
  • Synchronisation to external clock or pulse on demand possible
Possible applications:
  • Micromachining
  • Light detection and ranging (LIDAR)
  • Precision measurements
  • Frequency conversion
