BDL-SMC ps/cw diode lasers

BDL SMC diode lasers

Becker & Hickl's diode laser modules are available in the Blue, UV and Red spectral regions with pulse durations down to 40ps and 20, 50 or 80MHz repetition rates. The SMC series offer CW or picosecond pulsed operation together with an optional single-mode fiber coupler.

Picosecond diode lasers at 375, 405, 440, 473, 488, 515, 640, 685, 785nm and 1064nm pulse widths down to 40ps. All feature low skew trigger output and extremely low RF noise.

Repetition rates of 20, 50 and 80MHz are switchable on the unit. The diodes are TE cooled and require only a simple 9/12v power supply.

The SMC series are available in both CW and picosecond regimes, and feature an optional connector for a single mode fiber with a 60% connection efficiency. The connectorised version eases fitment to confocal microscopes for TCSPC.

Becker & Hickl offer an extensive range of instrumentation for TCSPC including single photon counting detectors and PC plug-in cards for TCSPC.
