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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
