Visit RPMC Lasers at Pittcon

    RPMC Lasers will be exhibiting at Pittcon March 18-21 in Phildelphia, PA. Stop by our Booth # 2540 to see the products we will be featuring!

    Pittcon’s target audience is not just “analytical chemists,” but all laboratory scientists — anyone who identifies, quantifies, analyzes or tests the chemical or biological properties of compounds or molecules, or who manages these laboratory scientists. Having grown beyond its roots in analytical chemistry and spectroscopy, Pittcon has evolved into an event that now also serves a diverse constituency encompassing life sciences, pharmaceutical discovery and QA, food safety, environmental, bioterrorism and other emerging markets.

    RPMC Lasers will showcase our lasers specifically designed for Gas Sensing, Confocal Microscopy, and Spectroscopy including TOF MS, MALDI, and LIBS.


    RPMC lasers is proud to offer a wide range of passive q-switched microchip lasers which are the ideal ablation sources for time-of-flight mass spectrometry and MALDI applications.  Time of flight spectroscopy is a method used in mass spectrometry for measuring the time it takes for ionized particles of different masses to drift to the detector.  For this process to work, there must be a mechanism in place to ionize the particles, one of the methods used is photoionization.  These microchip lasers from Bright Microlaser offer a matchbox size solution with pulse widths ranging from 2.5 ns to 400 ps, pulse energy up to 35 mJ, and an M2 less than 1.2. 

     We also have a wide range of actively q-switched lasers for applications including LIBS.  Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS), is an atomic spectroscopy technique where a small portion of the material is ablated by a laser and the resultant plasma emission plume is analyzed by a spectrometer to determine its atomic structure.  This process requires that the laser have high pulse energy in order vaporize the sample and induce the plasma emission.  Since the plasma emission lifetime is between 100 nanoseconds and 10 microseconds, it is critical that laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy lasers have a stable and repeatable pulse rate that can be used to trigger the spectrometer.  RPMC offers high pulse energy bench top UV lasers from  Quantum Light Instruments that are specifically designed for LIBS.

    Confocal Microscopy:

    RPMC also offers Laser Modules and Multi-Wavelength Combiners from Oxxius.  The modules are based on state-of-the-art laser diodes and DPSS laser technology, integrated in convenient, high performance module designed to addresses the demands of laboratory scientists by providing:LCX-532-small-16-300x211

    • Stable and low-noise laser sources
    • Excellent beam quality (fiber coupling available)
    • Available in the following wavelengths:  375nm, 405nm, 445nm, 473nm, 488nm, >515nm, 532nm, 553nm, 561nm, 594nm, 633nm, 638nm, 642nm, 660nm, and 785nm.
    • Outstanding power and pointing stability
    • Industry standard footprint
    • Interchangeable controller
    • Graphic User Interface (GUI) with remote diagnostics. 

    The L4Cc and L6Cc LaserBoxx laser module combiners from Oxxius, dichroicly beam L6Cc--300x182combines four/six different diode and/or DPSS lasers into a single optical beam path. From there the output can be delivered from one to four output ports, via free space outs or single-mode fiber optic cables.  Multiple output are often preferable when utilizing both ultraviolet and visible or infrared lasers in the same unit.  This flexibility allows for the use of both low OH fiber and solarization resistant fiber to improve the throughput and lifetime of the unit.  

    – Up to 7 combined wavelengths (with external module)
    – Proven long-term stability
    – Modular optical design
    – Comprehensive optical design for easy maintenance
    – Windows Graphic User Interface
    – Optional multiple outputs

    The L6Cc and L4Cc wavelength laser module combiners are available in both OEM and turnkey versions making it ideal for both systems integrators and laboratory users.  The unit can be directly modulated through analog and digital I/O or controlled by a computer graphical user interface via USB connection. 

    Gas Sensing:

    RPMC Laser is the exclusive distributor for Eblana Photonics.  Eblana's DM laserDMbutterfly - Small technology delivers distributed feedback (DFB) laser like performance at a lower price point geared toward higher volume applications.  Their strained quantum well InP design provides stable, high performance, single wavelength operation and a wide current tuning range even at sub-mW laser powers.

    A large number of the molecules of interest for gas sensing have strong absorption in the near infrared region for example; O2 at 760 nm, NH2 at 1512 nm, H2O at 1392 nm & 1877 nm, CH4 at 1654 nm, and CO2 at 2004 nm.   As a result, Eblana Photonics' propitiatory Discrete Mode (DM) single frequency laser diode technology is an ideal solution for this application, available in wavelengths from 760 nm up to 2150 nm.
