OEM diode laser systems

TOPTICA Photonics AG is introducing four new TOP features to the iBeam / iPulse laser series.

Power instabilities and high noise levels are common symptoms with any diode laser, when there is a tendency for optical feedback in the set-up (e.g. back reflections from fiber end-facets or from highly reflective samples).

A new feature, the groundbreaking Feedback Induced Noise Eraser (FINE) of TOPTICA's iBeam lasers eliminates this problem. A simple push of a button makes TOPTICA's iBeam / iPulse lasers ultra-stable against optical feedback.

Tedious warm-up times are a major complaint of many OEM customers in almost all industries. Depending on the application this time-span varies profoundly and can last from several minutes to several hours. The problem: lost productivity, a huge drawback for the customer. Due to intelligent engineering TOPTICA's iBeam and iPulse lasers work within their specifications within an unprecedented 60 sec from a cold start! This unique feature enhances productivity, saves time and energy, all to the benefit of TOPTICAs customers and the environment!

Another new feature to make operation more convenient is the new autopulsing function, integrated into the iBeam / iPulse lasers. Offering improved flexibility: both frequency (15 Hz - 20 MHz) and duty cycle (10 - 90%) can be set using simple software commands. A great feature, making feasibility studies, integration work and testing much easier than with any other diode laser in this class.
