Fiber Laser

The Mentad fiber laser from RPMC Lasers (O’Fallon, MO) is now available at the 1.0μm wavelength. The 4.25 × 2.7 × 0.8" Mentad produces pulse energies up to 50μJ, with pulse widths from 500ps to 1.25μs and rep rates from 5kHz to 2MHz. The laser is also available at 1.5μm. At 1.5μm, the Mentad can produce up to 100μJ of pulse energy. Typical applications for the Mentad include: LIDAR, range finding, telemetry, target ID, 3D and topography scanning, and weather and pollutant detection.

Cylindrical Lenses

Dayoptics (Fuzhou, China) produces cylindrical lenses from a variety of materials including BK7, fused silica, sapphire, CaF2, and MgF2 as standard. Cylindrical lenses focus light in only one dimension and are commonly used in range finders to produce astigmatism. Cylindrical lenses are also used in semiconductor diode lasers as FAC lenses. Lens dimensions range from 1mm × 1mm to 100mm × 100mm.
