Cobolt Fandango 515 nm: A Solid State Alternative to Ar+ Gas Lasers
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).
Cobolt Fandango can be used for power demanding fluorescence analysis applications such as confocal microscopy, high-speed plate reading and single molecule analysis. With its higher output power of 150 mW CW, it is a general all solid state alternative to Ar+ gas lasers.
