Extended InGaAs array suitable for process control

Extended InGaAs array suitable for process control
LASER COMPONENTS is a manufacturer of extended InGaAs arrays. Their research and production facility in Arizona supplies customers all over the world with industrial grade quantum detectors. The semiconductor material absorbs incident IR photons in the intrinsic region generating electron hole pairs which are collected at external electrodes. Photovoltaic detectors are an option in many applications due to their high sensitivity, fast response, low noise and wide dynamic range.

Diffractive optical element for efficient laser brazing

Diffractive optical element for efficient laser brazing
Holo/OR, industrial partner of LASER COMPONENTS, has developed a diffractive optical element (DOE) that accelerates the laser brazing process for hot-dip galvanised metal sheets. It provides better melting performance and cleaner edges at the same time. The DOE made of UV fused silica has an efficiency of 90%. It forms three beams with different diameters and power levels. Two smaller stripping beams ensure that the zinc coating is preheated, cleaned and preconditioned for brazing.

Laser module offers precise positioning over long distances

Laser module offers precise positioning over long distances
With its FLEXPOINT Long Range Line Module, LASER COMPONENTS has developed a highly-precise positioning tool for long distances. Even at 50m, the line is only 4m long and can be adjusted to line widths of a few millimetres with an easy-to-use focusing device. The FLEXPOINT LR-L module is available with red (660nm) or green (520nm) lines.

Narrow bandpass filters suitable for demanding LiDAR

Narrow bandpass filters suitable for demanding LiDAR
In response to increasing demand for flat-top narrow bands for laser applications, Laser Components has announced an addition to its range of optical filters. The series of 4-cavity Fabry-Perot narrowband filters is suitable for demanding LiDAR, range-finding and free space optical communications applications. The filter coatings are fabricated from hard oxide materials so as to minimise wavelength shift due to temperature and angle of incidence variations, and ensure high durability.

TLC optics eliminates the wait for thermal stability

TLC optics eliminates the wait for thermal stability
For high power laser applications, thermal lensing can be an issue. Focal length can vary with running time as a result of heat build-up in optics due to power throughput. The TLC, or Thermal Lensing Compensation optic design from Haas Laser Technologies, passively compensates for thermal lensing for high power collimators and focal lenses. Thermal lensing for lasers with powers in excess of 1kW is reduced to less than the Rayleigh range of the lens design, through careful selection of materials and optical design.

IBS mirror coatings in the wavelength range 248nm to 3000nm

IBS mirror coatings in the wavelength range 248nm to 3000nm
LASER COMPONENTS now has Ion Assisted Deposition (IAD) and Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) coating capabilities. Being a precise and replicable method, IBS coatings are used for the most spectrally demanding applications, such as steep edge dichroic mirrors and very broad band mirrors. Unlike other coating technologies, process parameters such as beam energy, layer growth rate and oxidation level, can be individually regulated to a high precision during the coating process.

The use of pyroelectric detectors for non-contact temperature

The use of pyroelectric detectors for non-contact temperature
Every object emits heat in the form electromagnetic waves and sampling the energy radiated into space allows the measurement of the temperature of the object without ever having to touch it. The wavelength of the light emitted by the object depends on its temperature, with hotter objects generating light at shorter wavelengths. Thermal detectors have the widest wavelength response with the limiting factor being the transmission window used to protect the sensing element.

RTI NEO ONE laser systems presented at Prolight + Sound 2018

RTI NEO ONE laser systems presented at Prolight + Sound 2018
The RTI NEO ONE modular laser systems for professional applications and lighting designers were first published at Prolight + Sound. They were also featured on the PRG Stage in their Highlight show. The DMX / ArtNET control makes the RTI NEO ONE compatible to existing control infrastructure, no other control system is required. The RTI NEO ONE is designed as a multi-projector-laser-system: Several units can be attached to each other with a quick-lock system.

Laser diodes for material processing & laser cutting applications

Laser diodes for material processing & laser cutting applications
The low noise LD15CHA, the newest addition to the Wavelength laser diode driver line, offers modulation bandwidth, and power for materials processing, industrial laser cutting, and laser diode bars / stacks. The small laser diode driver delivers 15A output current up to 28V. It meets laser compliance requirements from 3V with a single 5V supply, and up to 28V with an additional 30V power supply.

FLEXPOINT laser module for industrial facilities

FLEXPOINT laser module for industrial facilities
Thanks to its M18 thread, the FLEXPOINT MV18 line laser module can be integrated into standardised systems. LASER COMPONENTS has introduced this product at the Vision Show 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. It is designed to deliver homogeneous power distribution along the entire projected line – a requirement for its use in machine vision. The module is available in an extensive range of wavelengths ­between 405nm and 850nm.
