CDRH- and CE-compliant Kyma Series LasersCARLSBAD, Calif., Jan. 18, 2006 -- Melles Griot, a supplier of lasers and photonics components, has unveiled the 85 BCD series of blue DPSS (diode-pumped, solid-state) lasers -- CDRH- and CE-compliant versions of its Kyma 488-nm lasers -- for laboratory use and for the design and certification of OEM laser-based systems.
85 BCD series lasers produce up to 20 mW of output at 488 nm in a linearly polarized, nearly circular beam (1.1:1 aspect ratio) with an M2 of less than 1.2. They use the same control electronics and have the same beam diameter and divergence characteristics as Melles Griot 85 YCA-series 561-nm lasers. This commonality of features and functions make it easy to design multiple lasers into a system, to combine beams, or to coaxially couple multiple lasers into a fiber.
The compact, conduction-cooled laser head incorporates thermoelectric cooling and automatic power control for stable, long-term operation. Power drift over 24 hours is less than 5 percent.
According to the company, the Kyma (Greek for “wave”) technology platform, introduced in 2005 for OEM configuration systems, simplifies the construction of DPSS lasers without sacrificing beam quality or performance.
