Omicron extends functionality of the „LuxX“ diode laser series


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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
