Take full control over your pulsed picosecond light sources with PicoQuant recently released Taiko PDL M1 smart laser driver. This laser driver is tailor-made for the most demanding applications in life and material science, semiconductor diagnostic as well as laser-ranging. The Taiko PDL M1 is able to monitor and control most laser head parameters such as optical output power or laser head temperature. It offers unmatched operational flexibility, including a wide range of repetition rates, burst patterns, continuous wave operation, and external triggering. Featuring both an intuitive local one button control scheme and a versatile remote user interface, operating a laser has never been more easy and enjoyable. The two interfaces are fully synchronized and can be used simultaneously.
