With maximum pulse energies of 250 millijoule at only 500 picosecond pulse width, the new DPSS laser system MAGNA EVO from InnoLas Laser GmbH is an ideal solution for many pulsed laser experiments. Applications such as LIDAR, time-resolved spectroscopy, plasma physics or nonlinear optics benefit from the unique combination of high peak power, high pulse energy and short pulse duration. The fully diode based pumping setup is optimally suited for repetition rates of 100 Hz to 1000 Hz, which allows a considerable reduction in measurement time. Additionally, the long diode lifetime of > 2 billion pulses leads to longer maintenance intervals and reduces service effort. The MAGNA EVO was developed by consistently integrating two standard systems, the picolo oscillator and the SpitLight EVO, in a common monolithic housing. This platform allows easy power scaling and flexible customization to meet special customer requirements. By using standard components which have proven their reliability over many years, long term stability is guaranteed for demanding experiments. All these features make the MAGNA EVO a great choice for replacing common lamp pumped q-switched lasers in a broad range of time resolved experiments.
