Centurion (40 mJ)

Diode pumped solid state laser

Compact pulsed Nd:YAG lasers


The Centurion is an air cooled, diode pumped laser, delivering 40 mJ energy in nanosecond pulses at repetition rates up to 100 Hz. Diode pumping reduces size, improves reliability, and eliminates most maintenance requirements.

  • Air cooled – no water required
  • High peak power – < 8 ns pulse width
  • Long diode lifetime – over 1 billion shots
  • Low maintenance – no lamps or filters to change
  • Nitro sealed – built to withstand harsh environments
  • Compact – small size integrates easily
  • Easy to use – graphic user interface
  • Highly reliable – guaranteed to arrive and stay aligned

The Centurion was designed for industrial manufacturing applications; diode pumping eliminates the need for service interventions involving lamp changes, or monitoring of water health. Simply install and forget.  The Centurion is well suited to variety of bench-top or manufacturing situations where maintenance intervention is difficult or not desired.  The Centurion allows the entrepreneur to concentrate on furthering sales without the headache of servicing lasers.

The Centurion operates as a 100Hz laser system delivering pulse energies of 40mJ. Ruggedized through and through, the 1064nm laser can be purchased with one of four dedicated wavelength options: 532nm, 355nm, 266nm  or 1574nm. The Centurion head is NitroSealed to prevent optical fouling and will operate over temperature ranges detrimental to most scientific YAGs. The Centurion requires no user alignment or adjustment of harmonics.

 An onboard laser brain seamlessly mates any head to any Centurion powersupply making possible hardware exchanges.  The Centurion can be mounted in any configuration further simplifying integration.
