Coherent Inc. has expanded its CUBE family of solid-state CW visible diode laser modules with three new wavelengths: 488 nm (50 mW), 685 nm (40 mW) and 730 nm (30 mW). The compact laser heads measure 100 x 40 x 40 mm, making them suitable for integration into instrumentation used for life sciences, metrology and inspection applications. The models are available with Center for Devices and Radiological Health safety accessories to enable stand-alone operation in laboratory settings. Because they use direct diode technology, they offer advantages over other solid-state CW visible laser technologies, and they deliver an order of magnitude improvement in electrical efficiency and compactness over legacy ion lasers. They produce true circular output, M2 beam quality of ≤1.2 and low beam divergence.
