MIRcat-QT™ Mid-IR Laser: Tune 1000 cm-1 at 1000s cm-1/s

The MIRcat-QT adds high-speed tuning, higher spectral repeatability, improved thermal management, and longer-wavelength options to the first generation of the MIRcat laser, a field-proven multi-quantum cascade laser system. The MIRcat-QT is truly a one-box, fully automated system with a flexible, modular design that allows factory configuration of up to four pulsed or continuous wave/pulsed modules, plus the option to add or upgrade modules later. The MIRcat-QT offers a tuning range approaching 1000 cm-1 (> 6 µm) and wavelength coverage to > 13 µm. It also delivers unmatched, industry-leading performance in critical areas like tuning speeds of > 5000 cm-1/s, output power up to 1 W, and TEM00 beam quality to enable high-efficiency fiber coupling. A new, higher-precision tuning mechanism and lower-noise drive electronics provide wavelength repeatability as high as < 0.1 cm-1 and CW RIN as low as -140 dBc/Hz.

Features & Benefits:

  • Wavelength availability: 3-13 µm
  • Tune up to 1000 cm-1 at speeds up to 5000 cm-1/s
  • CW* or pulsed output (up to 3 MHz/30% duty)*
  • Ultra-quiet CW: RIN as low as -140 dBc/Hz
  • Superb TEM00 beam quality and low beam pointing allows fiber coupling
  • High output power for high SNR*: to > 1 W (peak) and > 0.5 W (average)
  • GUI and SDK command sets included
  • Proprietary HFQD™ circuitry protects your chips

*Requires suitable chip(s).
