LaserTune-S™: Single Tuner QCL System

Item Description

Block Engineering's LaserTune-S is a next-generation tunable quantum cascade laser that delivers a six-fold increase in power, much greater thermal and temporal stability, and powerful electronics with unique pulse design capabilities. 

The LaserTune-S is delivered in the industry's smallest form factor package, and does not require bulky external cooling systems. 

Based on Block's sQCL single-tuner laser module, the LaserTune-S can be configured by customers to cover a 2-3 micron range within a larger 5.4 to 12.8 µm span. 

The new power-efficient and compact control electronics allow for flexible programming options from wavenumber sweeps, steps, or holding. Dynamic pulse lengths and duty cycles enable you to actively manage average power at each wavenumber. 

The LaserTune-S is designed to be a reliable benchtop tool for researchers. It can also be used for OEM evaluation of Block's sQCL laser modules. Any evaluation and development efforts can be transferred from the LaserTune-S directly to the sQCL, as both share similar specifications.
