Using Narrow Linewidth and Single Frequency DPSS Lasers for Your Application

In this quick reference guide we outline the key characteristics of lasers that are required for a variety of applications. While single frequency lasers with continuous-wave operation are well suited to fields requiring ultra-stable performance from an exact wavelength, you may also want to examine specifications for linewidth, spectral stability, coherence length, output power, and management of ongoing consumable maintenance. The optimal specifications change between applications and different laser-based measurement techniques.
