EXALOS releases NEW High-Power 840nm Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) for Medical Imaging and Sensor applications
Schlieren, Switzerland, October 6th, 2017. EXALOS has expanded its portfolio of 840-nm Superluminescent Light Emitting Diodes (SLEDs) by introducing new high-power devices that can provide more than 20 mW of power. These 840-nm SLEDs are especially suited for Medical Imaging applications such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Fiber Optic Sensor applications thanks to their high output power and large spectral bandwidth. For SD-OCT applications, higher output power from the SLED allow for more asymmetric splitting ratios in the interferometer and therefore in lower losses for the received OCT signal, enabling higher acquisition speeds or higher sensitivity. Higher-power SLEDs also help realizing surgical ophthalmic systems or multi-modal imaging systems where the OCT path is shared and therefore experiences higher losses. For fiber sensing applications, higher-power broadband sources are needed for longer-range systems.

The 840-nm SLEDs can provide an output power of more than 20 mW from a single-mode fiber and a have 3-dB spectral bandwidths of more than 50 nm. The standard product is delivered in a 14-pin Butterfly housing with a monitor photodiode and an FC/APC connector. All devices are based on EXALOS’ proprietary design. These new high-power devices are in currently available for delivery.

Exalos will be exhibiting these high power 840nm SLED devices at BIOS and PW in San Francisco January 27th to February 1st. Please stop by our booth at either BioS (8335) or Photonics West (1941) to discuss how these sources can benefit your applications and learn more about our other products.

About EXALOS
EXALOS AG, an ISO 9001:2000 certified company, is developing and selling SLEDs and Swept Source for the medical imaging, fiber optic gyroscope, test equipment and sensor industries. The company has its headquarters in Schlieren, Switzerland.

EXALOS has established strategic alliances with technological and cost-leadership partners, with the goal to provide customers with the optimum balance of price, time-to-market, performance, and size for any given specification. This approach gives EXALOS the flexibility to develop devices and solutions tailored for particular customers and markets.

EXALOS SLEDs currently target specific applications in four major markets:
• Optical coherence tomography for medical applications such as cornea and retina diagnostics
• Fiber optic gyroscopes for applications such as avionics, aerospace and navigation
• Optical channel monitors, chromatic and polarization mode dispersion, and passive components characterization in test equipment for telecom and datacom systems
• Fiber optic sensors for civil structure monitoring such as bridges and oil pipelines as well as temperature, pressure, and electrical current measurements
