Detectors offer higher level of photon conversion efficiency

Detectors offer higher level of photon conversion efficiency
LASER COMPONENTS has been manufacturing avalanche photodiodes since 2004 and these detectors are the heart of the photon counting instruments. The COUNT series is a portfolio of single photon counting modules with the performance optimised in the wavelength range 500-900nm. The COUNT series has an unrivalled quantum efficiency, over 70% in the red region of the spectrum with dark count rates at less than 10cps on some units, providing a level of performance that often outperforms photomultiplier tubes.

Versatile coating stripper for optical fibres

Versatile coating stripper for optical fibres
LASER COMPONENTS has offered a robust and versatile coating stripper, the GPST-1000 by Lightel, for all those who work with optical fibres of different builds and diameters. Coatings made of polyimides (PI), acrylate, or silicone can be removed just as cleanly as two-layer coatings, at fibre diameters from 80μm to 1200μm. Stripping is carried out completely contact free by a plasma, preventing chemical and mechanical damage. There is not the slightest impairment of the fibre strength.

Extended portfolio of optical fibres

Extended portfolio of optical fibres
LASER COMPONENTS has extended its portfolio of Fibercore products to include single- mode fibres with wavelengths from 488nm to 1625nm. Many varieties are covered: for example, single-mode fibres with an ultra-low profile or large NA for improved bending resistance. Some types have a high germanium content and thus intrinsic photosensitivity for writing fibre Bragg gratings without further hydrogen passivation.

Fibre optic switch for LiDAR applications

Fibre optic switch for LiDAR applications
LASER COMPONENTS has introduced the Agiltron CrystaLatch (CL) series of optical switches that are specifically designed for sensor and LiDAR applications. The CL 1x6 switch assigns the incoming signal to one of the six available output ports and simultaneously detects the reflected signal via a dedicated sensor port. It is designed for permanent, fail-safe live operation under strong vibrations, and works perfectly even at temperatures of -40°C.

Erbium Ytterbium doped optical fibres for fibre lasers

Erbium Ytterbium doped optical fibres for fibre lasers
LASER COMPONENTS has offered Erbium Ytterbium doped fibre with a core diameter range of 6um to 30um. Due to great demand for high power CW sources at 1.5um and output power of 20-30W range, our partner iXblue has worked extensively to improve both the core composition and the low index coating package in order to bring this technology up to customers’ expectations.

Fibre tips with ball lenses for end-face processing

Fibre tips with ball lenses for end-face processing
LASER COMPONENTS have provided custom ball lens profiles on the end faces of silica fibres. The plasma-based CMS process with ring-of-fire technology supports fibre diameters of 200, 365, 400, 550 and 600μm, including other diameters within the limits of the equipment. For fibres used in medical applications, end-face processing can be carried out in a clean room in accordance with ISO 13485. The entire process is also compliant to ISO 13485 hygiene requirements.
