10-mW VIOLET LASER
Feb 2002Qioptiq Photonics Ltd.
Point Source Ltd. has announced a high-power version of its iFlex-2000 violet fiber-coupled laser diode system. The 405-nm laser delivers 10 mW of power from the end of a single-mode polarization-maintaining optical fiber. The company says that the OEM laser features a constant power mode of CW operation at this power level. It was designed for materials processing and characterization, and also is suitable for multicolor fluorescence imaging in DNA sequencing and for biomedical instrumentation excitation applications that incorporate wide-field illumination.
