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: Scientists channel graphene to understand filtration and ion transport into cells

Tiny pores at a cell's entryway act as miniature bouncers, letting in some electrically charged atoms--ions--but blocking others. Operating as exquisitely sensitive filters, these "ion channels" play a critical role in biological functions such as muscle contraction and the firing of brain cells.

To rapidly transport the right ions through the cell membrane, the tiny channels rely on a complex interplay between the ions and surrounding molecules,...

Im Focus: Towards data storage at the single molecule level

The miniaturization of the current technology of storage media is hindered by fundamental limits of quantum mechanics. A new approach consists in using so-called spin-crossover molecules as the smallest possible storage unit. Similar to normal hard drives, these special molecules can save information via their magnetic state. A research team from Kiel University has now managed to successfully place a new class of spin-crossover molecules onto a surface and to improve the molecule’s storage capacity. The storage density of conventional hard drives could therefore theoretically be increased by more than one hundred fold. The study has been published in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Over the past few years, the building blocks of storage media have gotten ever smaller. But further miniaturization of the current technology is hindered by...
