What is OPSL?

OPSL is an abbreviation for optically pumped semiconductor laser which describes a technology that is used by Coherent for their special show laser modules.
The construction principle of OPSL sources is complicated, but in general the benefits from the resonator principle (DPSS and gas lasers) and the semi conductor principle (Diodes) are combined. Due to this a comparativley compact module design with high performance and excellent beam parameters becomes possible. However, these OPSL components are relativley expensive.

Further details and a comparison to other laser sources can be found here: advantages of OPSL technology
