May 8, 2012 San Jose, CA – Daylight Solutions has announced the introduction of a new line of high-resolution Mode Hop-Free Lasers featuring enhanced stability and the narrowest linewidth commercially available from external cavity, mid-IR technology. The debut of this product line is occurring at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO) in San Jose, CA.

The successful Mode Hop-Free laser product line has been completely redesigned for higher stability and increased versatility. The new design allows for narrower open-loop linewidth (≤10 MHz over a 1 s integration time) and reduced jitter both at a single wavelength and while scanning. The result is improved quality high-resolution spectra. The enhanced mechanical stability allows for a substantial increase in the bandwidth of the piezoelectric tuning element (PZT) to over 600 Hz.

The new TLS-41000-MHF model line also features a redesigned current modulation circuit optimized for high-resolution spectroscopy. The circuit has a widened bandwidth (200 Hz to over 1 MHz) with low phase delay. The overlap of the PZT and current modulation bandwidths allows for the implementation of a traditional two-stage locking circuit to minimize the center linewidth drift and jitter. “The increase in performance over our previous product offering is quite a step forward,” says Dr. Michael Radunsky, Product Marketing Manager for Daylight Solutions’ scientific product lines, “With over 300 units in customer labs and a number collaborative efforts underway with leaders in the field of high-resolution spectroscopy, we have unparalleled experience and user feedback. Higher resolution, smoother tuning, and the ability to tightly lock our source to a reference are all properties the high-resolution spectroscopy community has demanded. We are proud to be the only company that can offer this next-generation performance in the mid-IR.”

This new Mode Hop-Free Laser is available for summer 2012 deliveries in a full range of wavelengths spanning the mid-IR from 4 to 10.5 µm.
