Laser Components USA and Laser Components GmbH in Germany have a Manufacturing License Agreement (MLA) that is approved by the United States of America, Department of State, Directorate of Defense Trade Controls (DDTC) for the controlled export of ITAR optics specifications for the purpose of manufacturing ITAR laser optics in Germany that may be used specifically in USA military components.


The LETO phase modulator models are based on reflective LCOS microdisplays with 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and 6.4 μm pixel pitch. The LETO phase only spatial light modulator devices can be used like an external monitor using the standard HDMI interface of the graphics card. No additional software or special hardware is needed to operate the SLM.

Powell lenses are laser line generators that shape a laser beam into a straight line with uniform power distribution. They can be found in machine vision lasers and sensors for 3D triangulation.

The LUNA phase only Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) is a plug and play phase modulator.  It contains  a driver unit with standard digital video interface (DisplayPort) and a phase only LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) microdisplay with full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixel) and 4.5 µm pixel pitch leading to an active area diagonal of 0.39” with an aspect ratio of 16:9.

LASER COMPONENTS has developed a new optics layer design that has the ability to separate the polarizations of three wavelengths simultaneously. These new trichroid thin-film polarizers can be used to combine linearly polarized laser beams from several sources, even if they have the same or different wavelengths.

FLEXPOINT MVpulse laser module combines two criteria of machine vision: Bright light with output powers up to 100 mW and class 2 eye safety. High output and high contrast images allow for detailed processing. Bright light only needs to be available when the camera takes an image. The electronics match acquisition frequency and illumination pulses to each other, enable high output powers without the use of complex protective measures.

Laser Components offers a variety of high-power, surface-emitting VCSEL laser diodes with high-reliability and beam quality. They are used for a number of industrial and consumer applications.

Laser Components offer pyroelectric detectors designed to create an electric signal due to temperature changes in the chip. Deuterated Lanthanum α Alanine doped TriGlycine Sulphate (DLaTGS) detectors specifically exhibit the most effective pyroelectric effect known. Although there are many other possible uses, the major application for these detectors is FTIR spectroscopy.

Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) are used as adaptive optical elements that modulates light spatially in amplitude or phase. Laser Components offers these devices based on either reflective (LCOS) or translucent (LCD) liquid crystal microdisplays.

LASER COMPONENTS delivers Spatial Light Modulators (SLM) as adaptive optical elements that modulate light spatially in amplitude or phase. The available devices are based on either reflective (LCOS) or translucent (LCD) liquid crystal microdisplays.

LASER COMPONENTS delivers the LaserLight SMD as the world’s first high luminance, laser white light emitter in a compact 7 mm SMD package. The light emitter offers unique performance in low divergence and waveguide delivery for medical, biomedical, machine vision, and specialty illumination applications.
