Helium Cadmium Laser Systems

Key Features

  • Single Mode (TEM00) from 2mW to 50mW
  • Multimode (TEMmultimode) from 5mW to 100mW


The Helium-Cadmium (HeCd) laser is one of a class of gas lasers using helium in conjunction with a metal which vaporizes at a relatively low temperature.

Due to their three primary emission spectral lines (322, 354, and 442 nanometers) in the ultraviolet and blue-violet regions Helium Cadmium Laser Systems are finding an increasing number of applications in confocal microscopy.

The average lifetimes of our HeCd lasers are the best in the business. All of our lasers average 4,500 hours or more and some models average over 6,000 hours.

Laser Finder

Simply type in the wavelength or specific laser you are looking for. Additional, you can use the preselected wavelengths to fine tune your search. Maybe you want to refine your search as well by using the tags from the right side. Try it, it is simple.
