QUALITY MANAGEMENT

Quality management (QM) is a well established and continuous process at A.L.S. From the very beginning it has been a key part of the company‘s strategy to deliver high performance products of highest quality to the worldwide photonics industry.

A.L.S.’s QM concept comprises:

Identifying customer needs
A.L.S. responds with a new and innovative product concept to the emerging needs of OEM-type ultrafast as well tunable narrow linewidth laser sources in the VIS – NIR spectral window. Customers can get both types of lasers out of one hand with proven quality, reliability and repeatability.

The physics of light generation and manipulations
Lasers are not equal Lasers. Subtle differences in the time as well frequency domain make the difference. A.L.S.’s light sources in general exhibit very low amplitude and frequency noise, clean spectral shape, very low ASE background noise. This translates either into pedestal free, low timing jitter ultrafast pulse trains or tunable single-frequency cw sources exhibiting narrow linewidth operation.

Suppliers qualification
In order to meet highest reliability criteria, all critical components (e.g. pump lasers) used in A.L.S. lasers are qualified either according to Telcordia GR-468, MIL-883 or MIL-O-13830A.

Manufacturing
A.L.S. operates class 10’000 cleanrooms with separated class 1’000 areas for assembly and manufacturing. Assembly of the lasers is accomplished according to strict procedures ensuring maximum reproducibility.

Testing
Each laser module runs extensive predefined tests before it is shipped to the customer. All core specifications are monitored and measured before shipment and included in the shipment.

Customer support
We stock all long-lead items in-house, ensuring quick response times.

GUARANTEED SPECIFICATIONS

We have developed innovative solutions to guarantee and maintain laser performance throughout different ambient conditions.

Turn-key, maintenance free:
Our lasers are guaranteed to be turn-key and maintenance free over their entire life-span. No user serviceable parts or components are inside or outside the laserhead and laserdriver. Lasers cannot and need not to be serviced in the field.

The systems are passively air cooled (no water cooling!) and are working with regular 100 – 260 AC supply voltage.

The applied technologies and components ensure a long lifetime and high on/off counts.

Operation temperature:
We run extensive temperature and humidity tests with our laser modules during product development. Laser operation is tested between 10 °C and 40 °C ambient temperature with varying relative humidity (0 % - 80 %). The maximum variation of average output power and pulse duration over the entire temperature and humidity range is < 10 % peak-to-peak.

Reliable pulsed operation:
Reliable pulse generation without occasional pulse drop-out or Q-switching instabilities is guaranteed over the entire temperature and humidity range. Pulse quality and pulse parameters are maintained.
