  1. FLEXPOINT Long Range Laser Module: Precise Positioning Over Long Distances
    5/31/2018

    With its FLEXPOINT Long Range Line Module, LASER COMPONENTS has developed a highly-precise positioning tool for long distances. Even at 50 m, the line is only 4 m long and can be adjusted to line widths of a few millimeters with an easy-to-use focusing device. The FLEXPOINT LR-L module is available with red (660 nm) or green (520 nm) lines. Customers have the choice of any output power in a range between 5 mW and 30 mW.

  2. New General Manager At Laser Components Pyro Group
    5/9/2018

    Lance Feldman has been the new general manager at LASER COMPONENTS Pyro Group in Stuart, Florida, since the beginning of the year. Since the start of the Pyro Group in July of 2014, he has been responsible for the production of pyroelectric detectors.

  3. New Linear APD Arrays For Lidar Measuring
    5/1/2018

    The LASER COMPONENTS Detector Group expands its standard range of linear Si APD arrays by LCC44 housings containing 8 and 16 elements. The SMD components can be mounted on circuit boards, while also providing enough space for the integrated multi-channel amplifier circuit. Their operation only requires the voltage for the array and 5 V for the electronics.

  4. Christian Grunert Appointed Head of Optical Coatings Department
    4/17/2018

    Christian Grunert has been appointed Director of Production for Laser Optics at LASER COMPONENTS. The 37-year-old engineer succeeds Uwe Schallenberg, who has been working in thin-film coatings since 1977 and served as head of this key department since 2014.

  5. FLEXPOINT Laser Module For Industrial Facilities
    4/11/2018

    Thanks to its M18 thread, the FLEXPOINT MV18 line laser module can easily be integrated into standardized systems. LASER COMPONENTS is going to present this new product at the Vision Show 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. It is designed to deliver homogeneous power distribution along the entire projected line – an important requirement for its use in machine vision.

  6. Low-Cost Avalanche Photodiode In An M1 Package
    4/10/2018

    LASER COMPONENTS has announced that its cost-effective SAH series of avalanche photo­diodes (APDs) is now available in an M1 package. This is the smallest available SMD housing (Surface-Mounted Device), at only 2 mm x 1.4 mm. The new APDs will be presented at SPIE DCS in Orlando, Florida (Booth 1029).

  7. New High Precision Alignment Lasers With Small Beam Diameter
    3/7/2018

    LASER COMPONENTS presents two additions to its portfolio of high-precision alignment lasers: LT-PLM-635-01-C1 and LT-PLM-IRB-635-01-C1. At the exit point, the beams of these precision modules feature diameters of 1 mm and a squint angle of just 0.05 mrad, which equals 5/100 mm per meter distance from the target. With standard modules, the aberration from the center of the housing is considerably higher at 8.7 mm.

  8. Automatic Power Control For Higher Safety In Laser Diodes
    11/8/2017

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, introduces the new A4 series of compact APC laser diodes that offer additional protection for whenever an eye-safe radiation beam is required: As soon as the operating current exceeds a certain level, the automatic power control (APC) shuts down the laser diode.

  9. Quality Of Pulsed Laser Diodes Meets Highest Demands
    9/25/2017

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, is proud to announce that the first of its products has achieved ­qualification for use in the automotive industry. Pulsed Laser Diodes (PLD) with a wavelength of 905 nm are key components for the LiDAR technology (Light Detection and Ranging) used in autonomous driving.

  10. MWIR Materials Research, Cascade Laser Developments, And Spectroscopy Techniques Presented At First IR WORKshop In North America
    9/21/2017

    LASER COMPONENTS USA, specialized provider of laser and optoelectronic components in the US and Canada, is proud to announce an impressive list of 40 speakers at the 4th International WORKshop on Infrared Technologies. Organized for the first time in the US, the event will take place at Arizona State University on November 8 – 9, 2017 in Tempe, AZ, USA.
