Hamamatsuâ€™s S8664-1010 silicon APD (avalanche photodiode) provides a large, 10 x 10mm active area and several other benefits that make it suitable for design into analytical instruments for low-light-level measurement.
Lasers and diodes
Photonic Products has launched a new blue-violet wavelength (405nm) laser diode. It incorporates an internal monitor photodiode that can be utilised to accurately stabilise and control the optical output power.
Laser Components has introduced its Si APDs, which sit alongside its pulsed laser diodes at 850nm and 905nm, also produced in house. They have gained immediate acceptance in the market.
Laser Components is offering PbSe lasers for high-resolution absorption spectroscopy. They have good tunability, and are ideal spectral sources for industrial or medical gas sensors.
Microcertec is offering ceramic heat sinks for use in laser and opto-electronic systems. They are electrically insulating, chemically resistant and dimensionally stable at high temperatures.
Pro-Lite Technology his offering a new series of laser diodes using a non-absorbing mirror (NAM) technology that yields CW output powers up to 10W from 100Âµm single emitters.
Jenoptik Laserdiode has launched a new passively-cooled, fibre-coupled diode laser with a significantly higher brightness and a substantially reduced volume than the preview fibre-coupled diode lasers.
UK optoelectronics device manufacturer and laser diode specialist, Photonic Products, has developed a range of compact and affordable laser modules generating an accurate line or cross at 635nm or 650nm.
Photonic Products has launched a 660nm laser diode module with a very high, very stable output power of 70mW and adjustable AR coated glass optics.
Photonic Products has introduced Sony's new, high power, 808nm wavelength array laser diodes, the SLD 43 series; designed for high-power solid-state laser excitation or material processing applications.
