Lasers play roles in many manufacturing processes, from welding car parts to crafting engine components with 3D printers.* To control these tasks, manufacturers must ensure that their lasers fire at the correct power.
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.
A new experimental method permits the X-ray analysis of amyloids, a class of large, filamentous biomolecules which are an important hallmark of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. An international team of researchers headed by DESY scientists has used a powerful X-ray laser to gain insights into the structure of different amyloid samples.
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.
Zygo Corporation’s latest generation Nexview™ NX2 and NewView™ 9000 3D optical profiling instruments precisely measure surface area topography quickly and with ease for enhanced productivity and versatility, addressing a broad range of applications.
Stanford University researchers have developed a laser-based system that can reproduce images of objects hidden from view. The technology can be used to enhance the safety of self-driving vehicles, as well as applied to serve other functions.
OSI Laser Diode, Inc. (LDI), an OSI Systems Company, will showcase the SCW 1430 series of high-power pulsed laser modules for optical test equipment applications at OFC, March 13 - 15, 2018, San Diego Convention Center, San Diego, California, in booth #4730. The devices are specially designed for use in an optical spectrum analyzer (OSA) and for optical-time-division reflectometry (OTDR) tasks, or in other precision instruments and applications where high-peak-pulsed optical power is needed.
This year at Photonics West, Dan Ford with the Ophir Photonics Group talked to us about the importance of achieving laser consistency.
Jeff Briton and Dragan Grubsic discuss some of the challenges involved in operating pulsed laser diodes and avalanche photodiodes in LIDAR for the automotive and sensor markets.
In this video, Jimmy Green, an OEM Specialist, shares how Ophir Photonics assisted a lasik surgery company replace a plastic mode burn pre-test with an accurate laser measurement device.
This video describes how laser beam profiling with Ophir Photonics’ BeamGage showed why two different lasers running at the same power output produced different results.
In this video, Jimmy Green, an Ophir Photonics OEM Specialist, discusses an OEM solution provided to a customer that allowed for medical laser power development before and after procedures that ensured the proper outcomes.
In this video, Dick Reiley from Ophir Photonics shares how he provided a manufacturer a solution that allowed throughput to increase 4X by reducing the time required for quality inspection. This solution was specifically created for an application measuring laser diodes.
Eric Craven with Ophir Photonics provided us with a tutorial at DCS 2016 on how to co-align visible, near-infrared, and infrared laser beams through the use of a pyroelectric camera array coupled with beam profiling software.
