Frequently Asked Questions

Government & Academic Programs
Quantum Composers has a rich history of working with engineers and scientists in academia, providing lasers and synchronizing hardware for demanding and complex experiments. We invite you to evaluate one of our products with a free 30-day demo.

For over 30 years, Quantum Composers has been a valued asset in research institutions and government agencies around the world. With a focus on providing test and measurement units to a broad range of applications, researchers choose Quantum Composers lasers, current pulsers, and digital delay generators for customizable, cost-effective, and reliable solutions.

Special Pricing
When you are ready to purchase, we offer a full 2-year warranty on all standard products and can offer 10% discounts to qualified institutions.

Application Paper Discounts
Please also email us if you are interested in the 15% discount for application submissions. You will be required to submit a small writeup on your work or describe the use of the instrument in your application or field in exchange for the reduced cost.
LIBS & Spectroscopy
The use of proper timing equipment is a factor in every major research study but can particularly enhance the efficacy in a LIBS system. We carry a broad line of precision pulse generators, lasers, and laser accessories designed with the spectroscopy application in mind. Our digital delay generators provide several different sets of timing pulses; each synchronized to one another. At just 3 inches long, our MicroJewel lasers are reliable, light-weight, and ideal for applications such as portable LIBS.This will allow you to sequence several lasers with a single detector via our multi-channel units. When you need readings from your laser plume/plasma to be exact, you can turn to Quantum Composers.

Quantum Composers provides high-quality instruments designed to incorporate into LIDAR and laser imaging systems. Timing is a variable in every LIDAR application and proper synchronization between the laser, light collection, and detector can greatly enhance the efficacy of a system and analysis result.
Quantum Composers also provides innovation and value to our customers with its diverse family of Precision Pulse Generators. Our synchronizers offer flexibility in both cost and performance to meet the requirements of any LIDAR experiment. We also offer custom system and component design from concept to production. Contact us today to learn how Quantum Composers can fulfill your laser or imaging system.

PIV & General Velocimetry Applications
In Laser Flow Diagnostic Techniques such as PIV, precise synchronization between the laser and the camera is critical for producing a high-quality data set. The Quantum Composers suite of high-specification pulse delay generators operates in timing steps of up to 5ps with low jitter and easy-to-program memory settings to ensure full control of your activation signals.

Our synchronizers can dictate the timing of each frame of the CCD camera's sequence in conjunction with the firing of the laser to within 5ps. Thus, the time between each pulse of the laser and the placement of the laser shot in reference to the camera's timing can be accurately controlled. By using a Quantum Composers Precision Pulse Generator, researchers can be sure that their applications and experiments maintain competitive levels of accuracy. Quantum Composers instruments also offer fine timing resolution, low jitter, flexible programming, and a full complement of computer interfaces (RS232, GPIB, USB, and Ethernet).
Ordering Lasers & Custom Units
Lasers and custom units are built upon request and require 12-16 weeks for build, processing, and shipping time. To request pricing or information on customization, OEM, or integration please email
