Higher-performance microlasers in new MatchBox 2 series
The MatchBox™ 2 series microlaser has been introduced by Integrated Optics UAB. This new range of very compact lasers follows on from the original ones introduced to the UK by Elliot Scientific for applications in chemistry and biophotonics, particularly Raman spectroscopy and fluorescence imaging, back in 2013.
The MatchBox™ 2 series includes both DPSS and direct diode lasers with a wide range of powers, output wavelengths – from 405 nm to 1342 nm, and either free space or fibre-coupled outputs.
With a small, robust and easy to integrate form factor, enabled by the monolithic design, the MatchBox™ series offers a good power/size/price ratio for its class.
The hermetically sealed, ultra-compact all-in-one laser head is powered by a standard low voltage DC supply and includes the optical components, drive electronics and thermal management within a single enclosure.
