Spectra-Physics has released the Empower(TM), a next generation diode-pumped Nd:YLF laser with high power green (527 nm) output that is ideal for pumping Ti:sapphire amplifiers such as the Spectra-Physics Spitfire(R) series. The Empower is a Q-switched laser delivering up to >30 watts at adjustable pulse repetition rates between 1 kHz and 10 kHz. Pulse energies are as high as >20 millijoules. The Empower is based on a single Nd:YLF rod that is side-pumped by continuous wave laser diode bars, mounted in a compact field-replaceable pump module. It uses intracavity frequency doubling to provide the combination of efficiency and stability that is necessary for pumping state-of-the-art regenerative Ti:sapphire amplifiers.
