Evolase drivers overview

Evolase offers Laser Lab Solution package which includes laser diodes and SOA completed with a variety of highly flexible laser diode controllers for CW and ns/ps pulsed mode. The package allows to build complex experimental set ups and control them via single user-friendly software interface or via stand along benchtop LCD touch screen driver unit.


The set of laser diode controllers could be conveniently connected to a single lab computer or stand along benchtop LCD touch screen driver unit via USB/CAN hub. Then all drivers can be controlled via CAN protocol.


Key features

  • Available designs include 10/14 pin butterfly laser diodes, Type I, Type II, Type II telecom, SOA
  • Output current up to 2000 mA for CW controllers
  • Full current modulation for CW controllers
  • Single 5 VDC input power
  • Down to 40 ps pulse width for ps controller
  • Adjustable pulse width 1-100 ns for ns controller
  • External trigger option
  • Flexible pulse bursts generation
  • USB, RS-232,CAN, UART interfaces
  • LabView and Python libraries
  • All controllers can be controlled via single software interface or stand along LaserBench unit
