NT230 series lasers deliver high up to 9 mJ energy pulses at 100 Hz pulse repetition rate, tunable over a broad spectral range. Integrated into a single compact housing, the diode pumped Q-switched Nd:YAG laser and Optical Paramteric Oscillator (OPO) offers hands‑free, no-gap tuning from 193 to 2600 nm. With its 100 Hz repetition rate, the NT230 series laser establishes itself as a versatile tool for many laboratory applications, as laser induced fluorescence, flash photolysis, photobiology, metrology, remote sensing, etc.
Due to the innovative diode‑pumped design, NT230 series lasers features maintenance-free laser operation for an extended period of time and improved stability (compared with flash-lamp pumped counterparts).
NT230 series systems can be controlled from a 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 system display that is easy to read even with laser safety eyewear.
Due to DPSS pump source, the laser requires little maintenance. It is cooled by a water-air chiller, which further reduces running costs. An OPO pump energy monitor allows monitoring of pump laser performance. A standard feature includes a separate output port for the 355 nm pump beam.

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.
