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


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.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
