Laser Safety Shutter

Electro-optical Products Corp. (Fresh Meadows, NY) has developed a laser safety (interlock) shutter that returns to the “off” position in case of power failure. The shutter consists of a blade mounted on a rotary solenoid with a limited rotation angle. When the shutter is powered, the blade moves to an “on” position and clears the path for a laser beam. When the power is turned off, the return spring of the shutter moves the blade to an “off” position and blocks the laser beam. The shutter features 5V, 12V or 24V DC operation, and mounting to optical table is available. The SH-10 model (0.5", 13 mm) and the SH-20 model (1", 25 mm) are RoHS compliant.

Industrial 50W Picosecond Laser

RPMC Lasers (O’Fallon, MO) has introduced an industrial 50W picosecond laser suitable for manufacturers who need to drill or cut thin materials to produce components that should not be subjected to heat. Because the RAPID lasers have such short pulses, heat generated by the beam will not migrate into heat-affected zones. The result is a laser process known as cold micromachining that generates no burrs or splatter. The picosecond lasers are effective on materials under 1 mm in thickness, and offer removal rates as high as 30 mm3/min. The lasers are effective on all materials used in semiconductor, electronics, solar cell, aerospace, automotive, medical, microfluidics, micromold technology, etc. They also feature 50W average power with

Variable Focus Industrial Laser Module

Photonic Products (Hertfordshire, UK) has released a new range of variable focus industrial laser diode modules that offer high boresight accuracy of The modules also feature either a standard elliptical output beam or line generating optics with a 45°, 60°, or 90° full fan angle line to give straight-line precision without bowing. The modules have optical output powers from 0.95 mW to 27.50 mW, operating voltage of 5V DC regulated ±10% and operating temperature from -10 to 50°C, and are static, surge, and reverse polarity protected and RoHS compliant. Electrical connections are made via an industrial screw-on connector or 2.5 mm jack.

Hi-Speed DM37 Deformable Mirror

ALPAO (Biviers, France) has developed the Hi-Speed DM37, with optimized temporal response, large stroke, and high linearity. Designed for applications requiring large corrections with a small optical beam, this entry-level mirror is interfaced with Matlab, Labview, and C/C++. Advanced users who wish to write their own drivers can benefit from the LEDBOX (option) to simulate the ALPAO Hi- Speed DM37. The DM37 has a clear aperture size of 7.5 mm and an operating temperature of 15-35°C. It features 37 actuators, with 1.5 mm distance between each actuator.

Continuously Variable Apodizing Filters

Edmund Optics (Barrington, NJ) has introduced continuously variable apodizing filters designed to eliminate undesirable intensity variations and create an even illumination profile in optical systems. The Bull’s Eye type filter features a high optical density in the center that decreases continuously to an uncoated edge in order to flatten the intensity profile of Gaussian beams. The Reverse Bull’s Eye type filter features a high optical density coating on the edge of the filter, which increases continuously to an uncoated center. EO’s standard Bull’s Eye type filters are available in 25- and 50-mm diameters with end densities of 1.0 and 2.0. They are manufactured using a B270 substrate to a dimensional tolerance of +0.00/ -0.20, a surface quality of 60-40, and a thickness of 1.50 +0.10. The filters are suitable for a design wavelength range of 400-700 nm.

Fiber-Coupled, Multi-Bar Module

A fiber-coupled, multi-bar module from DILAS (Tucson, AZ) delivers 300W through a cladding mode free QBH high-power 200-μm core diameter fiber with a low numerical aperture of 35%. The modules are packaged in up to 10-bar configurations and designed based on industry-standard conductively cooled bars, which are optically stacked and polarization-coupled. The product requires only industrial water for cooling. The modules have demonstrated a lifetime greater than 10,000 hours at a 300W CW operating condition. Custom wavelengths are available upon request. They are designed for direct diode applications as well as fiber and solid-state laser pumping.
