Turnkey Diode Laser System

A new turnkey diode laser system from Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) delivers 75W of power at either 808 nm from a 200 μm core 0.22 NA (numerical aperture) fiber, or 976 nm from a 400 μm core 0.22 NA fiber. The HB-diode system is a fully integrated, microprocessor controlled instrument that operates from 110/220 VAC, and enables user control of diode output through either a front panel keypad or electronic interface, including analog, TTL, RS-232 and RS-485.

LED-Based Backlights

Global Lighting Technologies (Brecksville, OH) has introduced LED-based high-brightness backlights that offer thinness down to 0.4 mm for backlighting LCDs in consumer electronics products such as the keypads/keyboards used in mobile phones, laptops, and desktop PCs. The BLUs offer the thinness of electroluminescent (EL) backlighting, but with the advantages of advanced LEDs and with the superior light extraction provided by MicroLensTM molded light guides. Backlight assemblies less than 1mm high utilizing light guides as thin as 0.4mm or less are available.
