SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 14, 2007 -- Coherent Inc. said its new low-power, continuous-wave Compass 115M-15 green laser is specifically designed for price-sensitive, high-performance OEM applications.
The 115M-15 is the newest addition to Coherent's Compass 115M diode-pumped, solid-state laser series, which offers output powers of 5, 10 or 15 mW at 532 nm, and provides excellent beam characteristics in terms of mode quality (M² <1.2), power stability and noise (<0.5 percent rms), the company said.
The Compass lasers also offer long lifetime (>20,000 hrs.) and high unit-to-unit consistency, making them an ideal choice for demanding applications in bioinstrumentation -- including flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, genetic screening, drug discovery and biohazard detection -- as well as in graphic arts, inspection and metrology, according to Coherent.
Because compact Compass 115M lasers operate from a 5-V power source, feature conductive cooling and can be controlled and monitored through either an analog or digital interface, they can be easily integrated by OEMs, Coherent said. An autostart function allows direct system start and operation without any user-supplied control signals. The lasers also feature an optomechanical design that is optimized for high-volume, low-cost production.
