High-end Picosecond Diode Laser Driver

New high-end picosecond diode laser driver “Taiko PDL M1” with the new “Max Power” mode of operation. It allows running existing and new laser heads with increased power.

Thanks to its smart and flexible power control and monitoring, the driver generates pulses with an almost perfectly constant and calibrated set of parameters (pulse energy and pulse shape) at any repetition rate. The range of available laser heads  includes modules emitting at 530, 560 and 595 nm, as well as a new generation of high powered multimode diodes covering the whole visible to near infrared range. These diodes provide access to average optical output powers up to 150 mW in pulsed mode or up to 200 mW in continuous mode.

The “Max Power” mode is available now as a free firmware update that can be easily installed by the end user. Existing laser heads may require a new calibration by PicoQuant.

Thanks to the new “Max Power” mode and extended laser diode head range, the driver is suited for many applications, including power demanding ones. Even when operated in “Max Power” mode, the driver is fully calibrated and enables the usual display of optical power in mW values for any rep rate from 1 to 100 MHz.
