Copper vapour laser (CVL) is an efficient, high power and high repetition rate pulsed laser, giving output at two wavelengths of the visible region- green (510.6 nm) and yellow (578.2 nm) and being used for many research and industrial activities. Development of copper vapour lasers is taken up at RRCAT, Indore. Laser system consists of several subsystems like pulse generator system, switched mode power supply (SMPS), vacuum and gas system, cooling system etc. Various parameters and signals of these subsystems are to be monitored and controlled. Project includes hardware development for interfacing field signals to PLC, programming of PLC and Human Machine Interface (HMI) for logic implementation and graphical user interface development required for CVL operation.
