Omicron extends functionality of the „LuxX“ diode laser series

10.05.2013

The successful “LuxX” lasers by Omicron are being presented with new functions and premium features in the established compact format.

Under the name “LuxX+” the laser specialist Omicron presents a new diode laser series, with which the developing team is setting new trends in laser technology.


The lasers of the “LuxX+” series have got several new functions: With fast, direct digital modulation capability of >250 megahertz and analogue power modulation >3 megahertz as well as fast electronic shutter function with full modulation depth and >500 kilothertz, the lasers have got unique modulation speeds at a compact size of only 4x4x10cm.

Various input signals like TTL, 0...1 V, and differential modulation signals allow easy integration into existing or future customer’s designs.

“LuxX+” diode lasers come with an integrated RS-232 and USB2.0 interface, which allows easy and fast interaction with the application. With the use of the innovative Omicron optics, astigmatism is being compensated, so that not only beam diameter can be about one millimeter, or 0,7mm 1/e², but also the focus is absolutely round, which is important especially for microlithographic applications.

Also for biotechnological applications the new product family of the laser specialist Omicron is the first choice. The new “LuxX+” is available in more than 20 different wavelengths in the range of 375nm to 830nm, the favored wavelength range in biotechnology, and comes as directly modulated and very compact light source. The lasers are available with an optical output power of up to 500mW in single mode operation.

The new “LuxX+” diode lasers by Omicron will be presented at the world-leading exhibition „LASER 2013 – World of Photonics“ in Munich from May 13 until May 16, 2013. Serial production of the new lasers will start in the second quarter of 2013.

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...
