Keywords:laser resonance excitation, external cavity laser diode, tapered amplifier, miniturisation, portability

An external cavity diode laser coupled tapered amplifier system was constructed on a single heatsink/baseplate to allow for easy portability and compact, laboratory bench-top scale usage. Description of the design and construction, as well as pertinent characteristics is provided. The system is intended for isotope selective purposes, in particular, the quantification and analysis of Ca-41 for nuclear decommissioning, but the system may be applied to any appropriate isotope.
