Calypso 491nm

A High Performance DPSS Laser for Demanding Analytical Applications

The Swedish DPSS lasers manufacturer Cobolt has recently released a higher power version of its Cobolt Calypso 491nm.

The laser is now available on the 05-01 Series single frequency platform with an output power of 200 mW CW. Lower power versions (25 mW-150 mW) can be found on the 04-01 Series SLM platform

The Cobolt Calypso 05-01 is a continuous-wave single-frequency DPSS laser operating at 491 nm with up to 200 mW output power in a perfect quality TEM00 beam (M2<1.1). A new proprietary cavity design enables ultra-low noise performance of typically <0.5% rms (over 20 Hz-20MHz and over 10-40ºC), a narrow spectral linewidth of <1MHz and immunity to optical feedback. This high performance laser is perfectly suited to demanding analytical applications such as super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, cell sorting and particle analysis.

The laser is manufactured using Cobolt's proprietary HTCure Technology in a compact and hermetically sealed package (115x70x45 mm), which provides a very high level of tolerance to varying environmental conditions and exceptional reliability. Lasers built using the HTCure Technology have shown to withstand multiple 60G mechanical shocks in operation without any sign of degraded performance. They can be exposed to extreme temperatures (>100°C), and are insensitive to pressure and humidity.

The laser is supplied with a compact controller (CDRH or OEM) and free software for operation and monitoring of the laser system using RS-232 or USB communication.
Available on the same platform is also the Cobolt Zouk with 10 mW CW at 355 nm, the Cobolt Samba with up to 1000 mW CW at 532 nm, the Cobolt Jive with up to 500 mW CW at 561 nm, the Cobolt Flamenco with up to 400 mW CW at 660 nm and the Cobolt Rumba with up to 2000 mW CW at 1064 nm.
