RODGAU, Germany, May 23, 2013 — Omicron-Laserage Laserprodukte GmbH’s BrixX ps series compact universal diode lasers can be pulsed in the picosecond range as well as operated in CW and modulated mode. With completely integrated driver electronics, high-precision temperature regulation and beam-shaping optics, the lasers can emit ultrashort pulses down to 50 ps, pulses in the nanosecond range, and fast analogue and digital-modulated CW emission. Diodes with up to 1500-mW optical output power and wavelengths between 375 and 2300 nm can be used in the systems. The light output can be either free-space or fiber-coupled. CW operation is possible with up to 100 MHz digital and up to 1 MHz analogue modulation. The devices can be integrated into new or existing applications via integrated RS-232 and USB 2.0 interfaces. Applications include microscopy, spectroscopy, fluorescence analysis, and usage as a seed or pump laser.
