The new Revolution series of q-switched, green, pulsed lasers from Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) provides average power up to 80W at a wavelength of 527 nm, with a beam profile featuring an extremely smooth energy distribution. They also deliver pulse rate flexibility; the repetition rate can be smoothly adjusted from single shot to 10 kHz, with an additional option that extends pulse repetition rates up to 40 kHz.

Revolution lasers are diode-pumped Nd:YLF lasers, which utilize efficient intracavity frequency doubling to generate green output from the near-IR (1054 nm) fundamental. Simple integration into amplifier setups and industrial applications is supported by the compact packaging of the new Revolution design; all models feature the same 8.5" × 17" (216 mm × 432 mm) footprint.
