RODGAU, Germany, June 22, 2006 -- Deepstar, the newest diode laser from Omicron Laserage Laserprodukte
GmbH, is the first diode laser with almost infinite modulation
capabilities, according to the manufacturer.
The Deepstar does
not indicate any further residual fluorescence content in the "off"
moment during modulation even with very high modulation rates, thereby
achieving an almost infinite modulation capability. With the
temperature-stabilized diode laser of the LDM series capable
of high-speed modulation greater than 100 MHz, Omicron said its
development team has created a breakthrough in modulation technology
for diode lasers.
analog and digitally-modulated Deepstar offers a modulation depth of
significantly more than 100,000 to one. These lasers are particularly
suitable for fluorescence excitation and all applications where
absolutely no remaining light is allowed in the "off" moment during the
modulation. Omicron said Deepstar is the ideal source of light, for
example, in confocal laser scanning microscopy and flow cytometry.
With its ultradeep analog modulation greater than 10 MHz, digital
modulation greater than 100 MHz and a signal rise and signal fall
time of less than 2 ns, Deepstar is also suitable for those
high-performance applications which, up to now, were possible only with
continuous wave lasers and acousto-optic modulators, the company said.
Deepstar diode laser is available with 20 mW at 375 nm, 60 mW at 405
nm, 50 mW at 442 nm, 20 mW at 473 nm, as well as with different powers
up to 150 mW at 635 to 980 nm. The laser has a controller which is
equipped with an RS-232 interface and is operated with 24 V DC voltage.
The analog and digital signal inputs can be configured with respect to
voltage and impedance so that adaptation to the existing signal sources
can be implemented easily, the company said.
Also, the modular
principle of the laser heads of the LDM series offers further
possibilities for customer-specific adaptation, such as single-mode
fiber coupling with an efficiency of up to 75 percent, collimation for
0.5 to 15 mm of beam diameter, focusing objectives down to under 1 µm,
Omicron will present the Deepstar June 20-23 during
the Optatec Trade Fair in Frankfurt at Stand Number D50. For more
