EXOMARS 532 nm laser for RAMAN experiment

The RAMAN spectrometer, a scientific instrument of a rover to analyze minerals on the surface of Mars, uses a miniaturized and space-qualified laser source. Its core is a green diode-pumped solid-state laser with frequency doubling working at a wavelength of 532 nm and more than 100 mW output power. Though it weighs only 50 g including its housing, the sensitive optical components are constructed to withstand heavy vibrations as well as harsh thermal and radiation conditions.

Laserbeam soldered optics for harsh environments

Lenses, low strain soldered to alignment turned mounts, for objectives in short-wave and high-power applications. They are suitable for vacuum conditions and harsh load cases. The contact-free laser-based input of reflow energy minimizes the thermal load during assembly and allows high accuracy bonds.
