The NL100 Nitrogen Laser is ideal for fluorescence measurements, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometers, and other pulsed UV radiation experiments. It provides 3.5 ns pulses at 337 nm (UV), with repetition rates up to 20 Hz. The pulse energy is 170 µJ, which results in a peak power of 45 kW and an average power of 3 mW.
The NL100 can be triggered internally or externally at rates up to 20 Hz. It can also provide a sync output pulse (optional) derived from the laser pulse for experiments or systems where sub-nanosecond accuracy is critical. The user also has the option of running the laser system in command charge mode.
The NL100 uses a replaceable, sealed laser cartridge which includes the high voltage storage capacitors, switching element, and laser tube. The cartridge is warranted to maintain at least 70 % of its energy for twenty million pulses or one year, whichever occurs first.
