NT242 series lasers produce pulses at an unprecedented 1 kHz pulse repetition rate, tunable over a broad spectral range. Integrated into a single compact housing, the diode pumped Q-switched Nd:YAG laser and OPO offers hands‑free, no-gap tuning from 195 to 2600 nm. With its 1000 Hz repetition rate, the NT242 series laser establishes itself as a versatile tool for many laboratory applications, including laser induced fluorescence, flash photolysis, photobiology, metrology, remote sensing, etc.
NT242 series systems can be controlled from a user-friendly remote control pad or/and a computer using supplied LabVIEW™ drivers. The control pad allows easy control of all parameters and features on a backlit display that is easy to read even with laser safety eyewear.
Thanks to a DPSS pump source, the laser requires little maintenance. It is cooled by a stand alone chiller, which further reduces running costs. A built‑in OPO pump energy monitor allows monitoring of pump laser performance without the use of external power meters. A standard feature includes a separate output port for the 355 nm pump beam.
