PhotoSonus X is a perfect solution for photoacoustic imaging. It has high output energy of more than 50 mJ at the peak, a broad wavelength tuning range from 665 to 2600 nm.

It operates at 100 Hz pulse repetition rate. This set of parameters is perfect choice for gaining good photoacoustic signal strength and ensuring high data collection rate. Diode pumped laser technology and well-engineered system design ensures reliability and low-cost system maintenance. System comes with one-year warranty.

PhotoSonus X has a fiber bundle connector with safety interlock. Bundle connector adapter and beam size are adapted to fiber bundle input ferule dimensions.

PhotoSonus X can be certified for clinical photoacoustic applications.

  1. Due to continuous improvement, all specifications are subject to change without notice. The parameters marked typical are not specifications. They are indications of typical performance and will vary with each unit we manufacture. Unless stated otherwise all specifications are measured at 700 nm.
  2. Free space measurement at 700 nm. See tuning curves for typical outputs at other wavelengths.
  3. Lower fixed pulse repetiton rates are available upon request.
  4. FWHM measured with photodiode featuring 500 ps rise time and 600 MHz bandwidth oscilloscope.
  5. Measured at the output at 700 nm wavelength.
  6. Using external chiller.

Note: Laser must be connected to the mains electricity all the time. If there will be no mains electricity for longer that 1 hour then laser (system) needs warm up for a few hours before switching on.
