Multispectral Sensors

PIXELTEQ (Largo, FL) has introduced its new PixelSensor™ multispectral sensors. PixelSensor multispectral sensors use on-chip filtering to pack eight wavelength-selective photodiodes onto an array measuring less than 1cm, enabling simpler and smaller OEM optical devices. PixelCam™ and SpectraCam™ spectral cameras image spectral bands in UV, Visible, and NIR – SWIR for a variety of applications.

Quadrant Photodiode

Opto Diode (Newbury Park, CA) has introduced the SXUVPS4C, a quadrant photodiode with a 5 mm2 active area in each quadrant. The new device is the first of two new SXUV multi-element photodiodes to be introduced. The TO-5 windowless package features a 5-pin header. With light responsivity from 1 to 1000 nm and a shunt resistance of 100 Mohms, the new quadrant photodiode is ideal for 2 axes-positional-centering applications for lasers in the 13.5 nm to 200 nm wavelength range. Operating and storage temperatures range from -10 degrees C to 40 degrees C (ambient) and from -20 degrees C to 80 degrees C (in nitrogen or vacuum conditions). The maximum junction temperature is 70 degrees C and the lead-soldering temperature is 260 degrees C at 0.080 in. from the case for 10 seconds.

250W CO2 Laser

Coherent, Inc. (Santa Clara, CA) has added the new DIAMOND E-250 to its E Series CO2 laser family. The power range for the Coherent E-Series product line extends from 150W to 1000W. The new DIAMOND E-250 is a fully sealed, pulsed CO2 laser offering 250W of average power and > 750W of peak pulse power. The DIAMOND E 250 has its RF power module integrated within the same housing as the laser tube, eliminating the RF umbilical cable required in older Coherent K-series lasers as well as other suppliers with separate RF power supply units. In addition to the DIAMOND E-250, Coherent is also offering the new DIAMOND E-250i in the same advanced compact configuration with an output wavelength of 9.4 µm. The shorter wavelength is ideal for processing a number of materials such as films and plastics used in mobile devices.

IR Emitters

Laser Components (Hudson, NH) has introduced a new generation of diamond-like pulsable infrared emitters. The DLSxxxX2224 series has replaced its predecessors, 17-900 and 22-1000. Significant improvements include tighter process control, a longer life expectancy, and a broader hot spot. In particular at wavelengths above 4.5 μm the signal increased by approximately 30%. The diagram shows a sample measurement of the modulation depth in relation to the pulse frequency. This was measured using an IG26X250S4i type extended InGaAs photodiode.
