OSI Laser Diode Premieres Blue Pulsed Laser Diode Module at LASER World of PHOTONICS

  • The company introduces innovative 450 nm laser diode module in Hall B2, Booth 139 at LASER World of PHOTONICS, June 24 - 27, 2019, in Munich, Germany.

Edison, New Jersey – June 20, 2019 – OSI Laser Diode (LDI), a leading global supplier of advanced optoelectronics components, launches a blue 450-nm pulsed laser diode module which includes an electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection device. Packaged in a convenient, 3-pin coaxial format, the new CVB 450-TO56R is specially designed for demanding metrology applications.

Uniquely provided by OSI Laser Diode, the gallium nitride (GaN) laser diode module is optically coupled to a 200/230/500 µm fiber pigtail, making it ideal for uncooled optical metrology tasks where pulsed optical power is required. Highly efficient, the CVB 450-TO56R is RoHS compliant. The compact, fiber-coupled coaxial package gives high-peak power in a highly flexible format. In combination with the high-resolution CCD, the CVB 450-TO56R offers outstanding metrology resolution.

OSI LDI’s new blue laser diode module features peak optical power at 2 watts (minimum), an absolute maximum forward current at 2500 mA, with a threshold current of 300 mA (typical). The center wavelength is 450 nm (typical) with a 440 nm (minimum) and 460 nm (maximum) spectral range. The device has a spectral width (root mean square, or RMS) of 1 nm. Operating temperatures range from -40 °C to 85 °C.

The proprietary product will premiere in Hall B2, Booth 139 at the 24th Annual LASER World of PHOTONICS in Munich, Germany, June 24 - 27, 2019.
