Cobolt has released Cobolt Fandango, a higher power model of its 515 nm solid-state laser.
Cobolt Fandango is a continuous-wave solid-state laser operating at a fixed wavelength 515 nm and with output powers of 25 mW, 50 mW, 100 mW and now 150 mW. It is a single longitudinal mode laser, with very low noise (<0.3 % rms), narrow spectral line width (typically <30 MHz) and exceptionally high beam quality (M2<1.1).
