Universal Laser Systems leveraged decades of materials processing research and expertise to influence the development of its proprietary integrated air-cooled, metal core, CO2 laser source, with a mode-replicating, free-space slab resonator and an integrated RF power supply. The combination of technologies involved in this design not only makes ULS laser sources compact, but also permits both pulsed and true continuous wave (CW) operation. The combination of military grade construction and the ability to completely reprocess the laser renders these laser sources indefinitely maintainable.
ULS manufactures lasers ranging from 10 watts up to 500 watts in output power at both 10.6µm and 9.3µm wavelengths. All ULS laser sources have integrated air-cooling throughout the entire power range. The ULS design assures additional Universal Features, including Rapid Reconfiguration™, Dual Laser, and SuperSpeed™ technologies.
Aerospace grade welded aluminum, low voltage power supplies along with integrated safety features reduce the risk of hazards and provide additional operational safety.
ULS laser sources have an incredible track record for long service life. Tens of thousands of metal core CO2 lasers have been manufactured by ULS since 1997, with many lasers still in active service after a decade of operation.
