High power, high speed laser light | Cavitar

Go to High Speed for High Power lighting


CAVILUX 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 kHz.

All features are controlled with CAVILUX Control software.

Additional features
** 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 nm light.
** 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.

Laser Units
Output power 200 - 500 W in a typical configuration
Wavelength 690 nm (red visible) or 810 nm (near-IR)
Pulse Generation  
Generation of any pulse pattern within the limits of
- pulse durations 30 ns ... 10 µs
- duty cycle 1% for max 10 s or 0.3% continuously
- generation of single pulses or bursts of pulses (max 5) at high repetition rate
Fibre optic illumination
- direct illumination from fibre optics (eg Schlieren imaging)
- adjustable illumination with lens (standard solution)
- uniform black illumination ( eg shadow imaging)
- line profile illumination ( eg PIV)
- coaxial illumination ( pressurized processes)
