WALTHAM, Mass., May 13, 2013 – Excelitas Technologies, a global technology leader focused on delivering innovative, customized optoelectronics to OEMs seeking high-performance technology solutions, today announced the launch of the newest addition to its family of pulsed laser diodes, the Surface Mount 905 nm Pulsed Semiconductor Laser. With high optical pulses centered at a wavelength of 905 nm, the laser is designed specifically for high volume, cutting-edge applications such as range finders, safety light curtains and laser therapy.

The 905 nm pulsed laser diode chip has monolithically grown layers that concentrate the emitting source size and create three emitting active areas. On average, these lasers produce 70W of peak optical output power when operated at 30A on a triple cavity version, with single, dual and quad cavity variants also available. The laser chip is mounted on an FR4 substrate, a leadless laminate carrier, which offers thermal management and power stability with temperature. In addition, the chip is protected by an optically clear hard epoxy coating.

“We are pleased to introduce the Surface Mount 905 nm Pulsed Semiconductor Laser to our existing portfolio of innovative pulsed laser diodes,” said Michael Ersoni, senior vice president and general manager, Excelitas Technologies’ global detection business. “As a cost effective, high volume manufacturing-ready solution, this product allows us to offer customers the specific solutions they need to increase productivity and automate complex manufacturing processes.”

Intended for surface mount application or hybrid integration, the laser can be precisely mounted by automated equipment, thereby reducing labor and time constraints. It is also capable of emitting light in a plane parallel or perpendicular to the mounting surface for easy integration into various OEM designs.
