Applications within these market include Raman spectroscopy, interferometry, particle analysis, laser Doppler velocimetry, fluorescence microscopy, flow cytometry, LIBS, laser ultrasonics and trace gas analysis.

Major Products/Services

Cobolt lasers are all high performance lasers, typically with single frequency performance, excellent power stability, perfect beams and very low noise. All Cobolt lasers are manufactured using proprietary HTCure(tm) technology and the resulting compact hermetically sealed package provides a very high level of immunity to varying environmental conditions along with exceptional reliability. Lasers built using the HTCure(tm) technology have been shown to withstand multiple 60G mechanical shocks in operation without any sign of degraded performance. With demonstrated lifetime capability of >60,000 hours and thousands of installed units in the field, HTCure(tm) has proven to be one of the most reliable methods for making industrial-grade lasers and is reflected with market leading warranty terms.


Our head office is located in Stockholm, Sweden, where all production, R&D, administration and sales is conducted in a top-modern facility, including a >700 m2 clean room environment.
