High Power Nd:YAG Lasers

The Boston 500 is an all new, compact and versatile Nd:YAG laser. It is based on an efficient, single rod, oscillator only design. It uses a unique hybrid reflector pump chamber design that combines high efficiency with good beam profile. The balanced combination of energy and beam quality makes the Boston 500 the ideal choice for pumping dye lasers.
The mechanical and optical design is optimized for easy operation: the flashlamp is changed without affecting the resonator alignment, optics have high pitch precision screws, the harmonic box is air-tight. The power supply and control electronics are based on latest solid state technologies. IGBT switching is used to drive the flashlamp; multiple processors (and FPGA control) monitors and sets the laser operation.
