In addition to cameras, the high-growth market of machine vision requires ever more complex forms of illumination, IMM Photonics has presented the laser diode module series ilumVISION as a solution for demanding illumination needs. The new laser diode module with homogeneous line can be applied, in particular, wherever the highest possible level of even illumination is called for.
The newest addition to the Ophir line of LP2 laser power/energy sensors with high damage threshold, the L50(150)A-LP2-35, has been announced by MKS Instruments. The L50(150)A-LP2-35 is a compact, thermal measurement sensor for use with high power density and long pulse lasers.
With compact dimensions and easy operation via the integrated colour touch display, Phoenix Contact aims to redefine laser marking with the Topmark NEO laser marker, which creates particularly robust and high-quality industrial markings.
This year’s SPIE Laser Damage Competition in Boulder, Colorado, will see LASER COMPONENTS take part for the ninth time. For 50 years, scientists and engineers from all over the world have met for a three day conference to discuss the latest research results on high-performance lasers, materials, and thin films as well as many other topics relating to the laser damage threshold
Bird Control Group conducted successful trials and demonstrations on deterring birds with Agrilasers at agricultural fields in Argentina. Local farmers decreased their crop loss by 70-90%. The projects were sponsored by the Dutch government as a part of the subsidy scheme for demonstration projects, feasibility studies and investment preparation studies (DHI).
MACOM Technology Solutions has announced a new portfolio of 25G distributed feedback (DFB) lasers designed for use in next-generation 5G LTE wireless fronthaul infrastructure. Building on MACOM’s legacy of industry leadership in 4G LTE connectivity solutions, the new laser portfolio is expected to help wireless operators deploy 25G optical links at commercial scale and cost structures on the path to 5G.
Optical Surfaces has announced that it has received an order from the UK Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE) for twelve ultra-fast focusing 370mm diameter aspheric lenses for its Orion petawatt laser research facility.
With its move to the industrial area Inning am Ammersee, VONJAN Technology not only has modern new premises at its disposal, but above all the product range of lasers has been significantly expanded. We understand that a laser system is far more than just the sum of its individual components. It is especially the right combination and the resulting interplay which leads to excellent system performance in the end.
Nearly five years ago, NASA and Lincoln Laboratory made history when the Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD) used a pulsed laser beam to transmit data from a satellite orbiting the moon to Earth — more than 239,000 miles — at a record-breaking download speed of 622MB/s. Now, researchers at Lincoln Laboratory are aiming to once again break new ground by applying the laser beam technology used in LLCD to underwater communications.
A comprehensive calibration service is being offered by LASER COMPONENTS, for fibre optic light sources, optical power meters and OTDRs from AFL, Greenlee, OptoTest and Viavi, as well as, upon request, for devices from other manufacturers.
