  1. OSI Laser Diode To Showcase LCW/SCW Series Of Instrument Laser Modules At Laser World Of Photonics
    5/24/2017

    OSI Laser Diode, Inc. (LDI) will showcase the LCW/SCW Series of high-power laser modules for optical testing at Laser World of Photonics in Munich, Germany, in Hall B2, booth #161, June 26 - 29, 2017. The specially-designed devices feature high-peak optical power (pulsed) up to 200 mW@1000mA and continuous-wave (CW) optical power up to 75 mW to meet the demanding performance requirements of the optical test equipment market. The new series offers a variety of wavelength options including 1310 nm, 1490 nm, 1550 nm, 1625 nm, and 1650 nm.

  4. Improving Performance In Computer To Plate Printing Using Semiconductor Laser Arrays
    6/23/2010
    Over the last 25 years, electronic typesetting and desktop publishing (DTP) have revolutionized the printing industry. Almost anyone with a computer and the right software can create and print professional materials. However to achieve the highest print quality, it is still necessary to use a commercial or industrial printer with advanced technology for delivering state of the art print quality standards.
