Full-Color LED Package

OPTEK Technology (New York, NY) has developed a full-color surface mount LED package called the OVSPRGBCR4. The package offers RGB color capabilities, a high CRI rating, and full 130° viewing angle. Applications for the OVSPRGBCR4 include automotive interior and exterior lighting, architectural indoor and outdoor lighting, LED backlighting, and general illumination. The OVSPRGBCR4 has a DC forward current of 250mA, a peak pulsed forward current of 500mA, and a thermal resistance of 20K/W. Typical luminous flux for the red, green and blue LEDs is 21 lm, 32 lm, and 7.5 lm, with a typical on-axis intensity of 7cd, 11cd, and 2.8cd, respectively. Maximum rated junction temperature is 125°C and the operating temperature range is -40°C to +100°C.

Seed Laser

Quintessence Photonics (Sylmar, CA) offers a new laser designed to deliver high power in a single mode beam for seeding fiber and solid state lasers and for use in direct applications. The seed laser can produce single-frequency beams of up to 1.5 W CW at 1064 nm and up to 1 W CW at 1550 nm. The design uses a two-part chip that combines a low power section and an amplifying section. A semiconductor chip mounted onto a heat sink with hard solder is included, and an optional single-mode fiber coupling is also available. The compact design simplifies laser systems for growth markets such as industrial, defense, and communication systems.
