- Offer Profile
- Radiant Dyes has 35 years of
experience in Laser Dyes and Dye Laser development. We are the oldest
existing manufacturer of tunable laser and laser accessories.
"Radiant Dyes Laser Acc. GmbH" is a synonym for high quality products: dye lasers.
The dye laser "NarrowScan" has been developed further over the last years and is now the most advanced product of Radiant Dyes. Similarly Radiant Dyes kept the cw-ring-dye and Titan-Sapphire lasers up-to-date. We also have successfully, for more than 10 years, excimer lasers in their program.
Since 2009 we are selling a tunable narrowband Diode Laser with interference-filter stabilization and external cavity, our "NarrowDiode", and now also available with amplifier.
We participate in the preparation of experiments and the equipment of laboratories, which is highly appreciated by universities and research centres worldwide.
For 30 years, Radiant Dyes satisfy individual wishes to the point of series manufacturing.
The NarrowScan pulsed dye laser series is based on a new resonatordesign with a very narrow linewidth (< 0.04 cm-1) that has been optimized in design and specifi cations by laser experts over many years and can now be used with pump laser pulses as short as 4 ns. The laser has very rigid and massive middle and side plates, ensuring a very high stability in the oscillator and pre-aplifier.
Our NarrowScanK Dye Laser is the Compact version of our NarrowScan. The specifications are the same. For more information please see PDF
NarrowScan HighRep [kHz]
Our NarrowScan series with polarization matched oscillator is ideal for multi-kHz, Q-switched pump sources. The high power dye laser output with high spectral purity and stability can be frequency doubled with high conversion efficiency.
NarrowScan DPSS / Standard / Compact
Fully integrated Laser System with Nd:YAG pump lasers
Our highly compact NarrowScan laser design makes it possible to integrate Nd:YAG lasers of the InnoLas Spitlight Series to ensure an independent and ultrastable operation.
The following laser options can be easily integrated into the housing of the NarrowScan laser to guarantee a rigid and compact structure.
1) NarrowScan with DPSS laser

Diode Laser with Amplifier
Our new NarrowDiode Laser is a small sized and low prices external cavity Diode Laser. The wavelength separation is realized by a low loss interference filter instead of the common diffraction grating.
Due to this new design, the Laser is characterized by a very high robustness against mechanical and thermal disturbances. Another advantage of our Laser is the fixed output beam, that leads to a very high stability, because the direction and position of the output beam are almost independent from the wavelength.
Furthermore, the Laser guarantees a very small bandwidth and a very large tunability at the same time, it also can be wavelength stabilized by frequency modulation spectroscopy.
With the new amplifier output energies up to 1,5W are reachable.

Our new NarrowSHG is a stand-alone second harmonic generator for frequency doubling of single frequency lasers such as Ti:Sa lasers, dye lasers and diode lasers.
The unit contains mode matching optics for the external laser and beam shaping optics for the frequency doubled light. The compact resonator with a high mechanical and thermal stability includes digital locking electronics with automatic relocking Hänsch-Couillaud or Pound-Dever-Hall stabilization.
This dye laser is based on our exchange unit for the Coherent 699 ring laser RDU 10 (nozzle holder and pump mirror adjustment). We paid attention to it that the laser is easy to handle.
By an adjustment with micrometer screws a very high reproducibility is guaranteed. The laser is mounted on a 50 mm invar rod and the dimensions allow a later installation of the etalon for single mode operation.
It consists of a 3-mirror-resonator, wavelength tuning is done by rotation of the Lyot-filter.
Actively Stabilized Scanning Single-Frequency Ring Laser
Now we have designed a new laser system.
Our new carefully designed and optimised
single mode ring resonator guarantees – in any
configuration - high performance, stability and easy operation.
Ring Laser with the following options:
- Broadband Ring Laser
- Passively Stabilized Scanning Single-Frequency Ring Laser
- Actively Stabilized Scanning Single-Frequency Ring Laser
- Digital Scan Generator
- Control Box
NarrowAmp - Pulsed Dye Amplifier
To get single mode laser pulses from a cw radiation it is the optimal solution to use our NarrowAmp, a pulsed dye Amplifier.
Our pulsed single-mode cw amplifier system consists of 2 to 3 amplifier stages depending on the pump laser.
The last amplifier stage is a Bethune cell in ordert o achieve a perfect beam profile. By using a special ASE-filter system the ASE is extremely reduced.

Accessories for cw Dye lasers
The following cw laser accessories should be used in order to achieve an absolutely steady and precise dye jet for Radiant, Coherent, Spectra Physics and for custom made laser systems.
We carry two different types of dye circulators and air cushions which were designed in such a way that vibrations due to the geared pumps can be avoided completely
This is achieved by a high efficient especially spooled cooling coil and also by the air buffer inside the stainless steel filter housing.
As in all our other dye circulators we paid attention to the exclusive use of stainless steel and synthetic materials which are not harmful to the laser dyes and withstand high pressures. Our low pressure dye circulator is the most appropriate pump for all usual applications with standing wave and ring dye lasers. For all high stabilised applications we recommend the low pressure air cushion and the 0.2 mm special dye nozzle RDSN 02 (interferometrically tested).
For all special applications where high pressure and flow rates are required we recommend the high power dye circulators and dye nozzles with different thicknesses.

Laser Accessories general
Raman shifters are suitable for a frequency conversion of fixed or tuneable laser sources and for the suppression of amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) and are based on stimulated Raman-scattering (SRS). The most commonly used gases for this purpose are H2, D2, O2 and N2. SRS is a flexible, economic and easy to handle wavelength extension method.
In addition, tuneable radiation down to 150 nm can be generated if the pump (dye laser) radiation provides sufficient high energy (= 30 mJ) and good focusability. Starting in the visible or ultraviolet with tuneable dye laser radiation, the complete spectral interval down to 150 nm is accessible without gaps by using different dyes.
The conversion efficiencies are more than 20% for the first Stokes and around 5% for the first anti-Stokes component. The efficiencies for higher order anti-Stokes components scale approximately with:
ASn+1 ~ ASn x 0.3 for n > 1
Continuous tuneable radiation from 190 nm (anti-Stokes generation) up to the far infrared region (Stokes generation) can be generated by using one Raman cell and one non-linear medium (e.g. H2).
Vacuum-flanges to connect the Raman cell to a vacuum vessel can be ordered from Radiant Dyes.
simple adjustment units
Simple adjustment aids
The etalons are suitable for bandwidth measurements at lasers with bandwidths < 0,8 cm-1. We offer these etalons as compact mounted units in stainless steel holders.
The system ranges from the simple He-Ne-laser adjustments, which are mounted on double slope tables, up to the He-Ne-laser adjustments with precise xyz-alteration and additional free rotational degrees.
For cooling lasers and other laboratory equipment
Our cooling systems (water/air) and heat exchangers (water/water) are completely made of stainless steel and can be operated with anti-corrosive coolants which prevent a corrosion of excimer lasers as well as a calcination of laser cooling circulators.
The cooling power of our cooling systems is between 0.5 - 6 kW.
They are equipped with efficient recirculation pumps, which provide a flow rate of 10 - 15 l/min in excimer lasers for example.
Our cooling systems RDK Maxi can be extended to a total of three cooling circulators by the use of two additional pumps. Thus a simultaneous cooling of up to three lasers or one laser and several dye circulators is possible with only one cooling system. The cooling systems RDK Midi can be equipped with one additional pump.
On principle, inexpensive custom-made systems can be supplied with only minor changes to our standard systems.
Our RDK systems are not designed for de-ionised water or other aggressive media, on request, they can also be supplied for these coolants.
In laboratories with existing cold water circulators, our standard heat exchangers are a good alternative for cooling bigger systems; for example for the cooling of high power excimer lasers, argon or krypton-ion-lasers as well as other laboratory equipment. Our standard heat exchangers do not have a temperature stabilisation.
The mentioned cooling powers are based on a flow rate of 20 l/min. and a water temperature of 12 °C on the secondary side. At different temperatures or different flow rates the cooling power changes accordingly.
Besides our standard systems we are in a position to manufacture cooling systems up to several 100 kW, according to customer specifications.
Ready-to-use dye solutions
As a special service we offer ready-to-use dye solutions, which are made individual on customer request.
But please note: we recommend to buy dye an solvent separately, because dyes have a better durability as a dry powder than as solution.
