SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 20, 2008 -- Coherent Inc. said its newest Cube laser, the 405, delivers twice the power of previous models without any increase in footprint.
The new Cube model outputs 100 mW at 405 nm and is contained in the same 100 x 40 x 40 mm (3.9 x 1.6 x 1.6 in.) package as all other Cube lasers. This increase in output power has not come at the expense of beam quality or noise, the company said, because the semiconductor laser-based Cube 405 still provides a TEM00 beam (M²<1.5) and less than 0.2 percent rms noise (from 20 Hz to 10 MHz). The 100-mW laser also offers the same modulation capabilities as other Cube lasers, with a digital modulation bandwidth of 150 MHz and an analog modulation bandwidth of 350 kHz.
The combination of high output power, excellent beam quality and low noise make the Cube 405 particularly well suited for applications in bioinstrumentation, where it will enable better separation and increased signal quality, Coherent said. It can also serve as a source for next-generation clinical instruments, where it will provide faster scan speeds or increased signal-to-noise ratio.
