Point Source Ltd. has released an all-fiber beam
combiner for red diode and blue solid-state lasers to integrate multiple lasers
into flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy systems. The device employs fused,
single-mode fiber that eliminates misalignment from shock, vibration and temperature
effects. The single-mode fiber acts as a spatial filter for higher-order laser modes
and produces a 0.7-mm TEM00 Gaussian beam with >60 percent efficiency.
