Appendix 1: Listing of Output Wavelengths from Commercial Lasers
The table below lists in order of increasing wavelength λ the emission lines of the most commonly available discrete-wavelength lasers over the range 100 nm-10 µm. Although continuously tunable lasers are not included, the molecular lasers which can be tuned to a large number of closely spaced but discrete wavelengths are listed at the end of the table. Harmonics are indicated by x 2, x 3 etc. Other parameters such as intensity and linewidth vary enormously from model to model, and no meaningful representative figure can be given. However the annually updated ‘Laser Focus Buyers’ Guide’ and ‘Photonics Buyers’ Guide’ both have comprehensive data on all commercially available lasers, together with manufacturers’ addresses.
