New EL-10-42-OF tunable lens with integrated optical feedback

The new Optotune EL-10-42-OF tunable lens has integrated optical feedback, measuring the optical power of the lens in real-time. Optimal control is guaranteed in combination with the EL-E-OF-A electronics. Reproducibility and focus stability is extremely high, making this lens the perfect choice for laser processing applications.

The EL-10-42-OF lens is 42mm in diameter with a height of 36mm and a clear aperture of 10mm. The lens is a plano convex + plano concave offset lens with focal length range of -500 to +500 mm and refractive index of 1.300

greenTEG and Pacer USA

Pacer USA has been selected to partner greenTEG - a developer and manufacturer of innovative thermal sensor solutions.

The company was founded in 2009 as an ETH Zurich spin-off and has since built up an international customer base. greenTEG uses a production technology which allows to industrially manufacture thermoelectric elements with a very high density of thermocouples. greenTEG’s thermal sensors are integrated into diverse applications by customers active in markets such as laser, building technologies, medtech, automotive, processing industry and R&D.

greenTEG will launch new high-precision laser power detectors at Laser World of Photonics China in March 2015. The new product line (gRAY) features housed, mounted, and bare die sensors for wavelength-independent laser power measurements. Full technical details and datasheets for greenTEG’s laser power detectors will be uploaded on this website as soon as the products are launched.

PVG Pulsed Laser Diodes

Excelitas PVG series of high power pulsed laser diodes are multi-quantum well devices with active layers fabricated using advanced MOCVD epitaxial growth techniques.

Devices are offered housed in two convenient hermetic package configurations. The “S” style package is a TO-18 style low inductance package (~ 5.2 nH) and the “R” style is a CD 9 mm outline providing increased thermal dissipation with the option of accommodating a rear facet monitor photodiode.

This series of devices are wavelength centered at 1550 nm primarily to take advantage of a significant increase over AlGaAs and InGaAs lasers in the maximum permitted emission level with respect to Laser Institute of America or International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) requirements.

The output wavelength of this series is well matched to the near peak spectral response of Excelitas InGaAs photodiodes types C30617H, C30618H, C30619H, C30645H and C30662H, amongst others.

Silicon Photomultipliers from Excelitas

Excelitas now offers high photon detection efficiency Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPMs) within their low light level detection portfolio.

SiPMs are arrays of parallel, interconnected avalanche photodiodes (APDs) which benefit from low-noise, low-cross-talk and ultra-fast timing resolution. Operated in a voltage range above the breakdown voltage, they provide high Photon Detection Efficiency (PDE) from near UV to NIR wavelengths. SiPMs allow multiple photons to be detected and counted within the same timeframe, and offer high linearity and high dynamic range.

One of the biggest advantages of SiPMs - as compared to traditional photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) – is their high immunity to electromagnetic fields.

Excelitas’ SiPMs are suited to high-volume applications in:

    PET Imaging

    Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT)

    High Energy Physics

    Radiation Detection

    Fluorescence Detection

    Analytical Instrumentation
