For gas lasers we have the only European manufacturer as a partner – Lasos Lasertechnik from Jena, Germany – and they manufacture both Helium-Neon and Argon-ion lasers.
Gas lasers provide superior optical characteristics, the beam is well-collimated and does not require external optics, and they also offer excellent coherence lengths.
Helium-Neon laser tubes and modules from Lasos have a robust mechanical design, excellent beam quality and a long service life of up to and above 20,000 hours. Standard and customized models are available in a large variety in the spectral range red, green and yellow with output powers between 0.5 and 35 mW.
Options are single mode or multimode, randomly or linearly polarized and Brewster window tubes for educational and scientific purposes.
Argon-ion lasers cover a broad spectrum in the blue and green spectral range, with emission in the range of 454nm to 514nm, in single-wavelength and multi-wavelength versions with output powers up to 500mW.
All Argon-ion lasers exhibit excellent beam quality, beam pointing stability and long-term stability with low-noise operation.
They have an internal mirror and vacuum-tight hard-sealed and integrated resonator construction optimizing the life time and power stability. The laser mirrors are adjusted and fixed by a special, proprietary technology - providing maintenance-free operation and no need for readjustment in the field.
Further features of Ar-ion lasers - they are compact, economical and available with several cooling options.
All laser models can be provided with OEM power supplies.
Gas lasers are designed for multi-purpose applications such as confocal laser scanning microscopy, DNA sequencing, flow cytometry, analytical chemistry, fast-flow-rate particle measurements, spectroscopy, digital imaging, metrology, industrial measurements, positioning, alignment, aiming, testing, code scanning, basic research, education or entertainment.
