CAVILUX® Smart for High-Speed Illumination

CAVILUX Smart is a versatile and powerful pulsed diode laser light source. It is an ideal light source for high-speed and machine vision cameras in scientific and industrial R&D.

CAVILUX Smart can generate pulsed light power of hundreds of watts., The light output is essentially monochromatic with low degree of coherence, which is ideal for illumination purposes as there are no chromatic aberrations or speckle. CAVILUX Smart can generate arbitrary pulses or bursts of pulses with precisely adjustable duration for the length of each individual pulse and each delay between pulses.

Benefits

  • High power and very short pulses down to 10 ns
  • Ideal light source for schlieren and shadowgraphy applications
  • Excellent for ultra-high-speed imaging with short pulses
  • Versatility by varying pulse duration and repetition rate
  • Monochromatic and low-coherence light
