Cube 445, a conduction-cooled laser from Coherent
Inc., delivers 40 mW at 445 nm. Designed to replace HeCd gas lasers, the all-semiconductor
technology improves reliability, noise, lifetime and beam characteristics. It features
an M2 of <1.2, beam divergence of 0.6 mrad, pointing stability of 6 μrad/°C
and a typical rms noise level of 0.05% at 10 Hz to 100 MHz. The laser head dissipates
3 W of heat and measures 100 x 40 x 40 mm. The device streamlines the process of
system design because it can be directly modulated at bandwidths of up to 125 MHz.
It offers standard USB or RS-232 interfaces with full control and measurements,
and a standard form factor for all Cube laser wavelengths. Users include scientists
working in biomedicine, microelectronics and engineering prototyping.
