Aries-100™ Mid-IR Laser: High Power, Fixed Wavelength, Broadband Output

DRS Daylight’s years of experience and field-proven performance in high-power mid-IR lasers come together in the Aries-100 family of products. These fixed-wavelength, high-power mid-IR CW/pulsed lasers feature a sealed, maintenance-free design, broadband output, a choice of center wavelength, and average power options up to 2 W. Aries-100 provides air-cooled CW or pulsed operation* and current (amplitude) modulation. They are CDRH compliant and carry CE marking.

All Aries-100 systems come with a SideKick™ laser controller, an umbilical cable, and a GUI and SDK to give you everything you need for productivity out of the box.

Features & Benefits

  • Average power of up to 2 W (air cooled)*
  • Center wavelength choices include 4.0, 4.6, 8.7, and 10.2 µm
