MINILITE
TM
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Can be operated
locally or remotely
via TTL interface
No need for an external
water hook-up, the system
is completely self-contained
Easy flashlamp replacement
without alignment of
the laser oscillator
Invar resonator structure
ensures long-term thermal
and mechanical stability

Minilite
TM
- Continuums entry level Q-switched
Nd:YAG laser system
The Minilite
TM
series of pulsed Q-switched
laser systems provides high levels of per-
formance while maintaining a very reason-
able price point. The Minilite
TM
is designed for
new and existing users of pulsed lasers
allowing easy operation, simple external con-
trol and compact size. Minlites are used for
remote sensing, sample testing, mass spec-
troscopy, LIF and laser flash photolysis.
1. Full width half max
2. Full angle for 86% (1/e
2
) of energy
3. With respect to external trigger
4. The first value represents shot-to-shot for
99.9% of pulses, the second value represents
RMS.
All specifications at 1064 nm unless otherwise noted.
As a part of our continuous improvement program, all specifi-
cations are subject to change without notice.

The Minilite
TM
platforms offer user accessible harmonic generators, integrated energy attenuator and simple oper-
ation. The Minilite
TM
I and II uses a single YAG rod/flashlamp pump chamber, invar resonator, and a
stable resonator design which offers maximum energy extraction and excellent beam quality.
