Model 1101-XX-CW-YYYY
Laser System Model 1101-XX-CW-YYYY-BF

Model 1101-XX-CW-YYYY-BF is OEM version of Pranalytica's high power, continuous wave, room temperature midwave infrared laser system. It provides up to 3.5 W of continuous wave, room temperature (CW/RT) optical power at the wavelength of 4.6 μm or up to 2.5 W of CW/RT power at 4.0 μm. The butterfly package includes the high power quantum cascade laser mounted on a thermoelectric cooler, a thermistor to sense the QCL temperature and appropriate optics for collimating the output from the QCL.

The quantum cascade laser incorporates Pranalytica's unique patent-pending structure designs, which permit continuous wave high power operation of the laser at room temperature without the need for external chillers or water cooling. The quantum cascade laser also incorporates Pranalytica's proprietary high reflectivity facet coating technology for high reliability operation of the laser at high CW power levels.

The OEM butterfly module requires appropriate thermal management system to maintain the butterfly package body at temperatures below 35oC. Electrical power specifications are provided with each module and the customer needs to supply current regulated power for driving the QCL as well as the TEC. The TEC current needs to be feedback controlled using the thermistor data to maintain QCL at a constant operating temperature. The thermistor data should also be used to provide a QCL power shutoff should the QCL device temperature rise above 45oC.

When the high power QCLs are supplied in the OEM package and are operated with electronics drivers other than those provided by Pranalytica, there is no implicit or explicit warranty on the performance or lifetime of the QCL.

The OEM version of the high power QCL is offered in several power output versions:
