Cube 405 Laser

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.

CubeLaser.jpgThe 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.

GLOSSARY
footprint
1. The sector of the Earth's surface registered upon a remote sensing device in a satellite. 2. The amount of space occupied by a component on the surface upon which it is mounted. 3. The space on an optical component occupied by a light beam.
modulation
In general, changes in one oscillation signal caused by another, such as amplitude or frequency modulation in radio which can be done mechanically or intrinsically with another signal. In optics the term generally is used as a synonym for contrast, particularly when applied to a series of parallel lines and spaces imaged by a lens, and is quantified by the equation: Modulation = (Imax – Imin)/ (Imax + Imin) where Imax and Imin are the maximum and minimum intensity levels of the image.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
