How Can This Flexible, 2300-211nm, High-Energy ns Laser Series Meet Your Unique Needs?

    Quantum Light Instruments' (QLI's) main product family is the Quantas Series.  This family of lasers offers compact, air-cooled, high-energy, low rep rate, DPSS lasers at the fundamental wavelengths of 1064 and 1053nm, and the standard harmonics through the 5th harmonic (211 and 213nm) with the addition of an external harmonics module. The Quantas series was designed for a wide range of applications that require high peak power pulses.


    QLI's Quantas Applications
    Light Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)
    • Time-of-Flight Spectroscopy (TOFS)
    • Light Induced Fluorescence (LIF) Spectroscopy
    • Flash photolysis
    Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption / Ionization (MALDI)
    • Pulsed Light Deposition (PLD)
    • LCD repair, laser ablation, remote sensing and many others


    The Quantas series offers a wide selection of configurations. An example of the many configuration options includes a 120mJ, 6ns, 10 or 20Hz, 1053nm, laser, called the Q2HE-F20, that can be configured with the H-SMART Harmonic module option for wavelength conversion through the 5th harmonic, or 211nm in this instance. Higher rep rate configurations, up to 200Hz, are available with energies in the millijoule level at 1064nm. Wavelength conversion into the infrared range, using an OPO, is also possible in the fully automated QTune series, with a tunable wavelength range from 210nm to 2300nm. QLI employs MOPA (Master Oscillator/Power Amplifier) architecture to produce high pulse energies, short nanosecond pulses while maintaining a low divergence output; making them an ideal source for harmonics conversion. In addition to the H-SMART Harmonics module option mentioned above, the Quantas Laser series is available with various options, including motorized attenuation through the UV, pulse energy monitors, fiber coupling, and single or multiple output options with hands-free tuning.


    One of QLI’s crucial innovations is its TEC-based water-free laser crystal cooling technology, combined with laser diode end-pumping. The absence of water results in a compact, user-friendly turnkey laser system that requires minimal maintenance compared to traditional water-cooled lasers that require large chillers and bulky power supplies. This enhancement eliminates the risks associated with water cooling and reduces the overall running cost.  


    Every year, new requirements and applications emerge for our products. With those new applications come new requirements for laser specifications and performance. For example, an application may require a reduced laser or electronics footprint, a broader operating temperature range, or higher pulse energies. The list could go on and on. Therefore, if you do not find the appropriate specifications you are looking for, we will be glad to discuss your requirements and confirm the feasibility of optimizing our products per your needs.

    Q-SPARK Series

    The Q-SPARK series from Quantum Light Instruments Ltd., features a short <1.5 ns pulse with pulse energies up to 10 mJ. Due to the short cavity design, pulse durations of <800ps are achievable with pulse energies up to 5mJ. The innovative water-free laser crystal end-pumping technology produces a Gaussian-like, low divergence, high peak power laser beam in a compact, air-cooled package.



    Q-TUNE Series

    The Q-TUNE series is a high energy, compact, tunable wavelength laser consisting of an Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) capable of producing a tunable wavelength range of 410-2300 nm with a linewidth narrower than 6 cm-1. Optional second harmonic generator extends the tuning range to 210-410 nm. The combination of a pulse duration shorter than 5ns and an upper repetition rate of 100Hz, makes the Q-TUNE a perfect coherent light source for temporally resolved spectroscopy, metrology, photo-acoustic imaging, and remote sensing applications.



    Q1 Series

    The Q1 series is a compact, energy-efficient, diode-pumped, air-cooled, Q-switched laser available at 1064 and 1053nm with up to 45 mJ of pulse energy and rep rates up to 50Hz. The high peak powers and low divergence of the Q1 series enable efficient harmonic conversion through the 5th harmonic (213 or 211nm). The innovative laser design has resulted in a user-friendly, turnkey system that requires little maintenance.



    Q2 Series

    The Q2 series is a versatile, diode pumped, air-cooled, Q-switched laser capable of achieving up to 80mJ of pulse energy with an operational rep rate up to 100Hz. Available at the fundamental wavelengths of 1064 and 1053nm, the innovative water-free laser crystal end-pumping technology produces Gaussian-like, low divergence laser beams with high peak powers, enabling efficient harmonics conversion through the 5th harmonic.



    Q2HE Series

    The Q2HE series, from Quantum Light Instruments Ltd., features an innovative water-free laser crystal cooling technology that enables generation of high quality laser beams with up to 100 mJ pulse energy and/or up to 4 W of average output power. Featuring a pulse duration of less than 7 ns and a low beam divergence, the Q2HE is capable of achieving efficient fundamental wavelength conversion through the 5th harmonics of 213/211 nm.
