Company Description

Alpes Lasers is a Swiss engineering company and leader in the development of optoelectronic devices in the Mid-Infrared (MIR) and Near-Infrared (NIR) range. From our central location within Switzerland and Europe, we are dedicated to promoting these technologies to customers active in a wide range of markets. Alpes Lasers offers a wide selection of products and services in the photonics and optoelectronics domain.

Alpes Lasers specialises in the development of cascade lasers, and was the first company to commercialise Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs). QCLs are used in various applications such as gas detection, medical applications and infrared countermeasures (DIRCM). IR light sources are of particular interest since almost all substances have strong molecular fingerprints in the IR spectral region. IR sources are therefore used in a wide range of applications from clinical diagnostics to environmental and industrial quality control.

Alpes Lasers aims to maintain its leading position in the IR photonics & optoelectronics industry. With a large R&D team and over 300 years of cumulative experience in QCL development and microelectronics, Alpes Lasers is involved in numerous research projects for both the European union and the US government, regarding the development of novel photonics applications. Many of these potential applications are not yet fully exploited and several multinational partners, especially in the large consumer electronics, rely on us to identify the most suitable product development strategy and to help them with the fabrication of prototypes and IP protection.

Alpes Lasers has the following distributors:

Products

ProductEncDescription
diode lasers Ediode lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers manufactures laser diodes emitting at wavelengths from 1.45 to 2.15 μm with powers up to 50 mW. They are offered either as chip-on-carrier or encapsulated in a low power TO-66 package with collimated or divergent free-space beam output.

distributed feedback lasers Edistributed feedback lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers single-mode, tunable DFB lasers with wavelengths from 4 to 14 μm and powers up to hundreds of milliwatts. These lasers are able to emit a single wavelength at a time. They can be tuned within a range that can reach up to 10 cm-1; there exists a variety of modulation schemes which can be used for different purposes.

external-cavity diode lasers Eexternal-cavity diode lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers mid-IR external cavity lasers with wavelengths spanning 4.3 to 14 μm. External cavity kits with integrated laser control electronics are also available. These are Fabry-Pérot lasers designed for maximum width of the gain profile.

frequency comb sources Efrequency comb sources from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers mid-IR frequency combs centred around 6 μm or 8 μm. The QCL comb is a stand alone device as it integrates the pump laser and the microcavity in its waveguide contrarily to other comb technologies. This makes it a very compact comb source. Being based on QCL technology, comb devices can be manufactured over all the MWIR and LWIR.

high-power lasers Ehigh-power lasers from Alpes Lasers

At wavelengths between 3.9 and 9.7 μm, Alpes Lasers offers multiple high power Fabry-Pérot lasers up to 1.5 W. These Quantum Cascade Lasers have a minimum average power of 1 W and more than 9 W of peak power. Available in a collimated HHL package with a dedicated driver, these lasers can be used for free-space optical communications, energy deposition, illumination and IR countermeasures.

laser diode drivers Elaser diode drivers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers QCL laser drivers for pulsed and continuous-wave operation. Pulse widths as low as 20 ns are achievable with repetition rates up to 1 MHz.

laser diodes Elaser diodes from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers SWIR laser diodes emitting at wavelengths from 1.45 to 2.15 μm with powers up to 50 mW. They are offered either as chip-on-carrier or encapsulated in a low power TO-66 package with collimated or divergent free-space beam output.

narrow-linewidth lasers Enarrow-linewidth lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers single-mode, narrow-linewidth tuneable DFB lasers with wavelengths from 4 to 14 μm and powers up to hundreds of milliwatts. In CW mode, our DFBs will typically exhibit linewidths on the order of MHz.

pulsed lasers Epulsed lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers offers pulsed QCLs with wavelengths ranging from 4 to 14 μm and average powers up to hundreds of milliwatts. The unique nature of QCLs makes them perfectly suited for very short-pulse applications.

quantum cascade lasers Equantum cascade lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers designs and manufactures a wide range of QCLs with wavelengths from 4 to 14 μm and powers up to hundreds of milliwatts. This includes FP, DFB, THz, frequency comb and external cavity lasers in the mid-IR. Additionally, Alpes offers uniquely fast and widely tuneable lasers with our ET and XT product line.

semiconductor lasers Esemiconductor lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers designs and manufactures semiconductor lasers, particularly quantum cascade lasers, with wavelengths from 4 to 14 μm and powers up to several watts. These lasers are highly compact and efficient, making them ideal for applications in the mid-IR with strict size constraints.

terahertz sources Eterahertz sources from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers designs and manufactures terahertz lasers emitting at frequencies between 1.3 to 4.7 THz and with powers up to 5 mW. These are cryogenically cooled devices based on QCL technology.

tunable lasers Etunable lasers from Alpes Lasers

Alpes Lasers designs and manufactures single-mode mid-IR lasers with wavelength tuning of up to 40 cm-1. We offer fast tuning over a wide range of wavelengths with our QC-ET product line, and extremely wide tuning with our QC-XT lasers.
