New high output tuneable light source… The Hyperchromator

An efficient monochromator utilising the high-brightness Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS Laser Driven Light Source (right) has been developed by Mountain Photonics, and was recently demonstrated on our booth at Photonics West.

The Hyperchromator uses an off-axis parabolic mirror to focus the broadband light generated by the small plasma spot of the LDLS™ directly onto a diffraction grating, and then off a second mirror to an exit port.

As no entrance slit is used, the optical efficiency of the system is very high – typically f/1.5 or f/2, depending on the required resolution or throughput. A white light bypass output is also available.

The output port has been designed to allow for a multitude of illumination or light coupling options. By using standard catalogue components, the Hyperchromator can be easily integrated into an application.

The Hyperchromator is controlled via USB/RS-232 and an intuitive GUI, with LabVIEW™ and other software libraries supported.

Existing owners of an Energetiq EQ-99X LDLS™ can add tuneability by purchasing the Hyperchromator unit alone.

New Single and Multi-Channel Laser Modules from AKELA

AKELA Laser Corp. are now offering single and multi-channel laser diode modules in a variety of wavelengths from 635 to 1950 nm. These new modules offer integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use, and can be configured using either a USB port or by external voltages.

Specifically designed for 100 micron, 0.22NA fibres and providing pulsed or CW up to 2 Watts per channel, they offer several different emergency shut-off options and are eminently suitable for both R&D and OEM applications.

Higher power levels will shortly become available as well as modules designed for the medical market with built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fibre sensors.

The laser modules are available in the following configurations: single channel; multi-channel with independently addressable outputs; and multiple outputs controlled by a single driver.

Please contact us for further information.

AKELA Laser Corporation introduces new Configurable Modules plus powerful Red, NIR, and IR Diodes

AKELA Laser Corporation has released single and multi-channel laser diode modules in wavelengths from 635 to 1950 nm, part of a phased introduction of a new range for 2013.

The laser diode modules, designed for 0.22 na 100, 200 and 400 micron fibres – or free space use – and providing up to 25 Watts CW power, are ideal for research and development.

Equipped with integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use, the modules are available in the following configurations: single channel; multi-channel with independently addressable outputs; and multiple outputs controlled by a single driver.

Configurable Laser Module

This new unit from AKELA is the most versatile and configurable diode laser module on the market today. With its individually addressable emitters, the module can operate at up to five wavelengths from one fibre, making it convenient for use in R&D settings. It fits standard high-power thermoelectric  systems, making integration easier, and meets stringent industrial and medical requirements.

Further development of these new modules will offer increasingly higher power levels as well as built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fibre sensors.
