Equinox is a single frequency, 532nm continuous-wave laser, designed for scientific and industrial uses.
Designed to industry-standard sizes, the collimator is available in both 25mm and 50mm diameters, for use with fibre lasers up to 10kW of continuous-wave power.
It features the company's proprietary MicroPulse technology, in which a continuous-wave laser beam is chopped into a train of tiny, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period allowing the tissue to cool between laser pulses.
The FPC1500 can also act as an independent continuous-wave (CW) signal generator.
Continuous-wave (CW) especially single-frequency mid-infrared laser sources have an important application in high-resolution spectral analysis [6].
successfully managed to generate broadband optical frequency combs based on cascaded FWM in highlynonlinear fiber low-power, continuous-wave seeds, but the flatness is too poor [7].

The company's Continuous-Wave Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy-based moisture sensors ensure the ammonia process gas is of the high quality necessary to produce high-brightness LEDs.
It includes chapters on signal speckle, radar-signal models, sensor trajectory models, SAR-image focusing, platform-motion compensation, and microwave-scattering from random media, with numerical simulations, as well as a ground-based FMCW (frequency-modulated continuous-wave) system and system simulations for target classification and recognition.
In their new system, the team used a type of LIDAR called frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) LIDAR, which they felt would ensure their imager had good resolution with lower power consumption, Behroozpour says.
These lasers can operate in three modes: continuous-wave, Q-switching, and mode-locking.
