Laser System Cooling
Because lasers are not 100% efficient, waste heat is generated during the lasing process. Heating of the laser can result in wavelength shift, a compromise in reliability, and ultimately failure of the laser system.
Thermoelectric cooling assemblies are ideal for removal of waste heat and laser temperature stabilization. II-VI Marlow has extensive experience in laser temperature stabilization for military applications. This includes stabilizing the diodes used as pump sources for laser designators as well as the lasing medium (nonlinear crystals, for example).
