Coherent Instruments Div. has introduced the MicroBlaze line of red diode laser modules, featuring high-brightness, diffraction-limited circular beams. These compact devices use a hermetically sealed low-loss microlens from Blue Sky Research to provide collimated and astigmatism-free beams with less complexity and power loss than conventional diode lasers. Other benefits include total wavefront error of less than a quarter-wavelength; Gaussian propagation with typical M2 values of <1.2; and Strehl ratios of 0.9 or better.
