EQUINOX

  • CW

SINGLE FREQUENCY CW 532 NM LASER

  • Equinox is a single frequency CW 532 nm laser (up to 18W). It’s inherently stable, low noise, narrow linewidth and naturally compact, robust and fully-automated.
 /

Equinox is a single frequency, 532 nm continuous wave laser designed for a range of scientific applications including pumping any Ti:Sapphire laser systems. It is engineered to meet the needs of experimentalists requiring high-performance systems with an emphasis on reliability, stability and ease of use. The laser incorporates pump diodes within the central unit and is fully automated with hands-free operation and control via ethernet, webpage and TCP/IP remote interface. This completely sealed system is inherently stable with low noise levels <0.05 % RMS and ultra-stable output powers with ±0.5 % stability. Equinox has options of high output power up to 18 W. Other major applications include mixing source, pump source for dye lasers and frequency doublers, optical tweezers, and biomedical imaging.

SINGLE FREQUENCY

Equinox is a true single frequency pump, so it’s inherently stable and quiet.

LOW NOISE

Designed with highly engineered optomechanical and electronic designs which enable it to achieve low amplitude noise levels <0.05 % RMS.

HIGH POWER

Equinox has options of output power up to 18 W.

NARROW LINEWIDTH

A linewidth <1 MHz makes it one of the narrowest linewidth lasers in its class.

EXCEPTIONAL MECHANICAL AND THERMAL STABILITY

This completely sealed system is built on an Invar baseplate to minimise effects from vibrations and thermal variations and provides maximum long-term stability and reliability.

COMPACT

Equinox measures 410 x 177 x 112 mm (L x W x H). The pump diodes are incorporated within the central unit and connected by flexible, low footprint cables - no bulky umbilical.

COMPATIBLE WITH SOLSTIS

Equinox is fully compatible with M Squared’s SolsTiS platform and its range of extensions.

EASY TO CONTROL

Easy-to-use web interface controls operation parameters during use as well as a published set of TCP/IP controls for third-party applications such as LabVIEW and MATLAB.
