LaserMax has announced the release of "Native Green," a new beginning in laser technology featuring a compact size and maximum output power stability over a broad temperature range. The first laser sight models to incorporate this new technology will be announced later this week.

Up until now, green laser systems have used diode pumped solid state (DPSS) technology. DPSS technology pumps infra-red light into crystals that convert the infra-red to synthesize green laser light. Native Green does not use DPSS. Instead it emits green laser light natively by using a green laser diode, avoiding the added weight, size, manufacturing complexity and lack of efficiency at high and low temperatures that the DPSS includes.

LaserMax Native Green has fewer parts, compact size and less heat sensitivity making it optimal for concealed carry.

"We predict that other laser companies will attempt to follow suit as soon as the advantages of this technology are understood," said LaserMax's VP of Engineering Jeff Mock. "DPSS green lasers represent a dead-end technology that will soon be rendered obsolete."
