High energy Nd:Glass laser systems
Each laser system of this type is customized to meet the exact requirements of the customer as expressed in a detailed specification sheet. The oscillator’s active material can be doped glass, Nd:YLF or Nd:YAG since amplification is provided by pumping chambers of increasing diameter in order to obtain the required power. Pulse duration is usually about 10 to 50 ns.
One of QUANTEL’s developments is the pump laser in the last amplification stage of the LASERIX at the LIXAM laboratory (Universitй de Paris-Sud). This system delivers 100 Joules pulses at a wavelength of 527 nm. Pulse repetition frequency is 0.1 Hz.

These lasers are used primarily to measure thermal diffusivity. Their pulse duration is approximately 350 µs with pulse powers of up to several hundred Joules.
