Latest News and Updates at Laser 2000 - Passion for Photonics
In an amazingly small and compact design, the Lambda Mini includes not only the laser diode and precision collimating optics, but also the laser controller and power supply via USB. All you need for operating and controlling the laser is a simple USB cable connected to your computer! All operating parameters can be monitored and controlled from a PC using the laser control software for Windows; or alternatively, the laser can be controlled from your own application software. The laser module is available either with free-space collimated TEM00 beam or factory aligned fiber-coupling. It is the perfect choice for space-limited application requiring a high-precision light source.
The multimode 850 nm VCSEL array is specifically designed for high-power applications with up to 750 mW output power. This VCSEL array is typically delivered in a PLCC 3528 package, but can also be delivered as bare die or mounted on a test board for quick and easy evaluation of VCSEL and package performance. Examples of typical applications:
- 3D scanning
- Motion control
- Gesture recognition
- Time of flight
- IR illumination for security
It is also possible to attach a diffuser to broaden the divergence.
Laser 2000 introduces the NUBURU AO150: it is the world's first high-performance laser in the sought-after blue wavelength range, which is ideal for industrial processing of non-ferrous metals. NUBURU's AO laser is a fiber-coupled high-power laser in the 450 nm range with a maximum output power of 150 watts.
The decisive property for high throughput and production efficiency is absorption. Compared to the industrial standard of the IR lasers (1 μm), the blue absorption is up to 20 times higher depending on the material. This results in a process speed which is five to 20 times faster. These advantages combined with an extremely better focus (5 x better) compared to IR (1 μm) characterize this new laser source.
This year again we will be exhibiting at LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich, June 26-29. We would be happy to see you there, so please come to our booth in Hall B3, Stand 103.
We will be presenting a long range of our products with many great interesting news for you to see.
See you there!
The new 7000 Series MultiSource Multi-Channel Controller from Arroyo Instruments is designed for applications requiring a large number of channels in a cost-effective and compact solution. With both laser driver and temperature controller options, the MultiSource is an excellent building block for system applications such as device burn-in and characterization. The 7000 series will be released during Q2.
We are happy to introduce the newest addition to our already extensive portfolio of suppliers: General Photonics, a US company founded in 1995 and a market leader when it comes to generation, control and analysis of optical parameters in fibers. General Photonics manufacture modules and components that control polarization, delay and phase, or combine, isolate and couple light into fibers. They also offer fiber-sensing systems, biomedical diagnosis systems and fiber-optic coils for fiber-optic gyroscope applications. General Photonics are located in California, with a facility size of 1800 m2 and more than 60 employees. They have an impressive customer base and an excellent track record with more than 50 patents and multiple product awards and “firsts” in reaching the market. This is a very good addition to our existing offerings for fiber-optic applications and fiber-sensing solutions. We are now able to offer all kinds of sensing and control of parameters of light in fibers. Please contact us to learn more about what we can do for you.
Spectral Engines’ portable Food Scanner solution has been awarded 1st prize from EU Horizon. The aim for the Horizon Prize for a food scanner was to create a mobile solution that analyses food composition quickly and efficient. The winning plug-and-play concept comes with the world’s smallest near-IR spectroscopic sensing module, advanced algorithms, cloud-connectivity and a vast material library. This makes the Food Scanner able to detect fat, protein, sugar and total energy content of food items at high accuracy. The solution is designed to provide people with food-related health problems, such as diabetes, allergies or obesity, with fast and relevant information about the food they consume. The Food Scanner is ready for OEMs to integrate to their own applications such as analysers, handheld instruments or production lines. As the winner of the Horizon Prize, Spectral Engines will receive € 800,000 from the European Commission. Congratulations!
The lensless all-fiber design of the Fiber Fabry-Perot Tunable Filter (FFP-TF) makes it immune to misalignment, environmental sensitivity and extraneous modes. It follows the Airy function so closely that engineers can use the theoretical mathematical model during the design phase. It is thermally stable, vibration and shock resistant, and has a small footprint and fast response times. The FFP-TF is ideal for spectrum analysis, optical sensing and monitoring and OCT applications.
The NM Sensor Modules from Spectral Engines are designed for system integrators who create leading-edge solutions for industrial or consumer applications. The new NM2.5 module introduces higher wavelength region, from 1950-2450 nm, which results in better sensitivity and specificity. This region is particularly good for substances such as protein and sugar. The NM Module-series is a compact (<15 g), cost-efficient, high-performing OEM module with minimal temperature response.
StellarNet announces a new rugged, turn-key solution for portable light measurement. The Stellar-RAD SpectroRadiometer is an easy to use research grade spectrometer for field testing of lights with no additional setup required. The NIST traceable system can measure spectral Irradiance & Illuminance, Correlated Color Temperature (CCT), xy Chromaticity, PAR and more!

The PTT489 DM system is a high-performance, factory calibrated deformable mirror with precision, low-noise electronics. The design uses robust single-crystal-silicon mirror segments, which remain flat over large temperature ranges and high incident powers. Intuitive commands use piston/tip/tilt values or Zernike coefficients to enable simple mirror positioning. The USB interface ensures easy operation and ready-to-use out of the box. These DMs are used in applications ranging from state-of-the-art retinal imaging and microscopy to high-contrast imaging systems for planet detection, developed by NASA.
