Lasers for Quality Control
The increasing demands of consumers today means that maintaining quality of transported perishable goods, in particular of fresh fruit and vegetables, often requires monitoring. This is typically done using a combination of lasers and spectroscopy.
DPSS lasers are a direct replacement for gas lasers in such analytical instruments. It is the low maintenance, compactness and long term reliability which have resulted in increased sales into this market even though the current price of such a replacement is slightly higher than traditional gas lasers. The Cobolt Dual Calypso 491 532 nm, as a unique multi-line solid-state laser, is particularly attractive for this application.
