A compact fully solid state instrument which produces an intense beam of light at a wavelength of 630nm and can be mounted directly upon a standard type optical bench. An adjustable collimator is incorporated providing focusing facilities and control over beam divergence. A useful feature is the modulation facility which permits experiments in laser communications and speed of light investigations to be carried out. Modulation may be demonstrated by means of the built-in oscillator, or from an external signal source. For these applications a Modulated Receiver Unit is available (B8A46176). The case has rubber feet to aid stability.

A key operated ON/OFF switch is incorporated for safety. (Please contact techsupport@philipharris.co.uk if a spare key is required).

Technical Specifications:

  • Power Output: 0.9mW nominal, 1mW absolute maximum.
  • Laser Category Class: Class 2
  • Wavelength: 630nm
  • Beam Divergence: 1 mrad approx. at optimum focus.
  • Modulation Capability: Analogue or digital.
  • Internal Modulation: pulsed at 1MHz, pulse width 0.1µs.
  • External Modulation: 1V peak to peak max., 100Hz to 1MHz, input impedance 50O.
  • Modulation Input Connectors: 3.5mm jack sockets.
  • Operating Voltage: 8 to 12V d.c. from internal PP3 type battery (alkaline recommended), and from smoother and regulated source via 'power in' socket.
  • Current Consumption: 50mA typical, giving approximately 9 hours operation from alkaline PP3.
  • Dimensions: 160mm x 65mm x 72mm overall (including collimator).
  • Mass: 400g.

A Laser Accessory Set is available for purchase separately which includes a multitude of different accessories for use with a laser (B8H26151).

  • Physics: Waves, Optics & Lasers
