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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
