Air-Cooled Argon Ion Laser-5500A

The 5500 contains a field proven off the shelf ILT plasma tube designed to operate in TEMoo mode and provide a polarized output beam. This model has a standard 300mW multiline output with light control feedback regulation or may be equipped with ILT’s optional littrow prism. This option will allow this end user to tune the laser from 457nm to 514nm and will guarantee 100% spectral purity.
