Smart is a versatile and powerful pulsed diode laser light source
designed especially for scientific and industrial R&D and
consists of a laser unit (size app. 0.3 dm3), control unit, laptop
computer, software and illumination optics. Note: one control
unit can drive 1 - 4 laser units and synchronise 1 - 4 cameras.
CAVILUX Smart can generate arbitrary pulses or bursts of pulses
with adjustable durations for each pulse and each delay between
pulses. The duration of each pulse can be adjusted from 30 ns
to 10 µs. The maximum duty cycle (0.1 %) of CAVILUX Smart
enables, for example, the generation of 1 µs pulses at 1
All features are controlled with CAVILUX Control software.
** Light output - ability to generate pulsed light power of hundreds
of watts in a typical configuration
** Available in standard wavelength of 690nm or of 810nm
** Visible 690 nm red light makes alignment easier and provides
good sensitivity with semiconductor cameras.
** Even higher power and brightness can be achieved by using 810
** Despite the wavelength, light output is always monochromatic
and incoherent producing no chromatic aberrations or speckle
Possible applications include welding, paper webs, flows as well
as material testing and the study of impacts and explosions.
