Aries™ High-Power, Fixed-Wavelength Mid-IR Laser Systems

Aries-100™ laser systems provide high-power, fixed-wavelength, broadband mid-infrared output in a robust, air-cooled package. Depending on the QCL chip selected, Aries-100 systems may be factory-configured for: a center wavelength in the range 3 to 13 µm; high-duty-cycle pulsed or CW output; and output average powers up to 2W*.

Product Details


Daylight Solutions’ Aries-100™ laser systems provide high-power, fixed-wavelength, broadband mid-infrared output in a robust, air-cooled package. Aries-100 systems incorporate Daylight Solutions’ field-proven quantum cascade laser (QCL) technology. Depending on the QCL chip selected, Aries-100 systems may be factory-configured for: a center wavelength in the range 3 to 13 µm; high-duty-cycle pulsed or CW output; and output average powers up to 2W*. Aries-100 uses Daylight’s new compact SideKick™ QCL controller, which provides users with convenient USB- or Ethernet-based GUI and SDK control interfaces.

Aries-100 is ideal for high-power applications such as optical fiber testing, standoff detection, infrared countermeasures, scene generation, and material modification/machining. To learn more about how Aries-100 can help your application, please contact us or download the Aries-100 datasheet.
