Innovative two-in-one solution: with new diode laser series Omicron connects two laser-worlds in one device

10.05.2013

Laserspecialist Omicron in Rodgau brings more flexibility into the world of diode lasers with its new “BrixX ps” laser series. Through simply changing in the operating mode one device offers either picosecond pulsed or modulated CW-operation.

With the innovative laser series “BrixX ps” Omicron for the first time presents universal diode lasers, which can be pulsed in the picosecond range, as well as being operated in “continuous wave” (CW) and modulated mode.


The compact laser modules with completely integrated driver electronics, high precision temperature regulation and beam shaping optics can emit ultrashort pulses down to 50 picoseconds, pulses in the nanosecond range and fast analogue and digital modulated CW emission.

Diodes with up to 1500 milliwatt optical output power and wavelengths between 375 and 2300nm can be used in the “BrixX ps” systems. The light output can be either free-space or fibre-coupled.

CW operation is possible with up to 100 megahertz digital and up to 1 megahertz analogue modulation. Furthermore the modules have got an electronic shutter function which can switch the emission on and off at a bandwidth of more than 500kHz.

In pulsed mode the repetition rate can either be triggered by an external synchronization signal, or it can be generated by the internal, programmable frequency generator with up to 100 megahertz.

The “BrixX ps” modules can be integrated into new or already existing applications via its integrated RS-232 and USB-2.0 interfaces in an optimal way. For easy use a comfortable control software is included in delivery.

Besides the standard program, customized wavelengths, or diodes supplied by the customer, can be integrated into the devices. Typical applications are microscopy, spectroscopy, fluorescence analysis and usage as seed or pump laser.

Serial production of the new “BrixX ps” diode lasers by Omicron will start in the second quarter of 2013 and will be presented at the world-leading exhibition „Laser 2013 – World of Photonics“ in Munich from May 13 to May 16, 2013.

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
