Visible single emitter product family to be featured
at LASER 2007. World of Photonics in Munich, Germany,
area B3, booth #358, from June 18-21, 2007
Vancouver, WA June 15, 2007 – Leveraging nLIGHT’s proprietary nXLT™ technology, nLIGHT is pleased to announce the release of its 0.75 W 635 nm high-brightness single emitter diode laser. Available in either c-mount or HHL packages, this new product features 0.75 W of optical power from a 150 µm wide emitter at 635 nm. Primary applications include laser-based displays, machine vision, photodynamic therapy, and DNA sequencing.
“We are pleased to report an increase in rated power by 50% while maintaining the extended lifetime and high reliability that is a hallmark of our nXLT™ (eXtended Life Technology) process,” said Mark DeVito, VP of Device Engineering at nLIGHT.
Typical operating currents are around 1.5 A with a compliance voltage of 2.2 V and a wall-plug efficiency of over 20%. Spectral width is less than 3 nm, and typical beam divergence is less than 42 degrees full-width at half maximum (FWHM) in the fast-axis direction, and less than 10 degrees FWHM in the slow-axis direction. As an added feature, nLIGHT can include an antireflective-coated cylinder lens to collimate the fast-axis to less than 2 degrees, FWHM, with greater than 95% power transmission.
This product at 0.75 W and 635 nm complements nLIGHT’s 1 W and 1.5 W devices in the 660 to 690 nm region, allowing for several possible combinations via wavelength multiplexing. It is featured in our newly released 3 W 635 nm Pearl™ platform. For applications that need more than 1 W of power, or need a fiber-coupled output, Pearl™ provides the perfect solution of high-brightness, long lifetime, and ease of integration due to its compact size and plug-and-play electrical connections.
nLIGHT does not and will not offer for sale any products within the geographical area served by The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas or to its residents.
