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.

Laser optics help keep fruit and vegetables fresh

Laser optics help keep fruit and vegetables fresh
Diffractive Optical Elements (DOEs) allow laser beams to be split, bundled, or formed into almost any shape and are used in multiple applications. The food industry, for instance, uses them for laser perforation, when it comes to applying micro holes into packaging for fruit or vegetables. These allow the food to 'breathe' and thus extend its storage life. The holes have diameters of between 50-300μm depending on the type of food and material.

Interference filters can absorb visible-NIR

Interference filters can absorb visible-NIR
Interference filters are widely used in a transmissive configuration, whereby light passes through the filter to cause some effect, be that band-pass, short-pass or long-pass etc. By nature, interference filters do not generally absorb in the visible-NIR, but instead light is either transmitted or reflected. That makes transmissive interference filters suitable for applications within this spectral range.

Pyroelectric detector uses a differential mode of operation

Pyroelectric detector uses a differential mode of operation
Pyroelectric detectors are susceptible to line interference and other sources of electromagnetic interference from non-detector related noise. Several manufacturers of OEM sensor devices use EMI filters to prevent these noise sources interfering with the operation of the device but for many gas detection applications a higher level of noise immunity is required.

PbS and PbSe infrared detectors

PbS and PbSe infrared detectors
LASER COMPONENTS is a world leading manufacturer of PbS and PbSe infrared detectors. From our research and production facility in Arizona we supply customers all over the world with these industrial grade thermal detectors. These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the Polycrystalline thin film promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material, in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance.

The 'Slim' line: 1064nm PLANEX laser

The 'Slim' line: 1064nm PLANEX laser
RIO has announced its first PLANEX laser emitting the classic YAG wavelength of 1064nm, featuring narrow line width (15kHz), low noise and high coherence length. Its compact housing and standardised electrical connections make it an easy drop-in replacement for existing designs. RIO lasers are available from LASER COMPONENTS in Germany and in the UK. RIO’s proprietary PLANEX technology is a combination of a gain chip and a planar light wave circuit (PLC) with an integrated Bragg grating.

High precision alignment lasers with small beam profile

High precision alignment lasers with small beam profile
LASER COMPONENTS has announced two additions to its portfolio of high-precision alignment lasers: LT-PLM-635-01-C1 and LT-PLM-IRB-635-01-C1. At the exit point, the beams of these precision modules feature diameters of 1mm and a squint angle of just 0.05mrad, which equals 5/100mm per metre distance from the target. With standard modules, the aberration from the centre of the housing is considerably higher at 8.7mm.

Technique can spot objects hidden around corners

Technique can spot objects hidden around corners
A driverless car is making its way through a winding neighbourhood street, about to make a sharp turn onto a road where a child’s ball has just rolled. Although no person in the car can see that ball, the car stops to avoid it. This is because the car is outfitted with extremely sensitive laser technology that reflects off nearby objects to see around corners. Stanford researchers have designed a laser-based system that can produce images of objects hidden from view.

Cross and point line lasers offer increased visibility

Cross and point line lasers offer increased visibility
Reality capture technology company, Leica Geosystems, has announced the new Lino series of cross and point line lasers, specially created to ensure supposedly outstanding laser visibility. The clever power concept with Li-ion rechargeable batteries enables users to work without inconvenient interruptions. Thanks to the ingenious adapter concept with its strong magnets, the laser is also simple and quick to position.
