Direct Green Diode Lasers Mass-Produced

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email
Omicron Laserage Laserprodukte GmbH of Rodgau, Germany, has begun volume production of direct green (515 nm) diode lasers specifically for biotechnology applications. The devices offer numerous advantages over conventional argon gas lasers and diode-pumped solid-state lasers, the company said. With their direct analog modulation up to 500 MHz, they need no optoacoustic modulator, resulting in smaller, more cost-effective devices. They have greater power efficiency (the Luxx diode lasers have an optical output power of 25 mW while consuming only 5 W), leading to a longer lifetime. They also feature system readiness in less than two minutes. In the company’s Luxx and Phoxx laser series, the new 515-nm diode laser will replace diode-pumped solid-state lasers of the same wavelength.
