iBeam smart WS – wavelength stabilized diode laser

The new iBeam smart WS, a compact OEM diode laser, features reliable wavelength stabilized laser diodes integrated into TOPTICA's successful iBeam smart platform. The iBeam smart WS merges an extremely narrow linewidth with high beam quality, low power consumption and a high robustness. Furthermore, the iBeam smart WS also offers an ultra-compact footprint and the known ease-of-use of a diode laser.
This unique combination of laser parameters meets the requirements of applications that require high-coherence lasers, such as high-resolution Raman microscopy / spectroscopy, interferometry, holography, and gas sensing.

The innovative design of the iBeam smart WS ensures unmatched wavelength stability. Instabilities due to vibrations or ambient temperature drifts now belong to the past. The system easily maintains its outstanding performance even under harsh environmental conditions. Active thermal stabilization of the laser diode ensures constant lasing conditions and an excellent beam-pointing stability.

The compact OEM diode laser with integrated µ­processor based electronics makes system integration a snap. Users can set and control all laser parameters via the RS 232 interface, making this flexible hands-off laser system simply the best choice for OEM integration.
