940nm VCSEL Array

Princeton Optronics (Mercerville, NJ) has introduced high-power (8W) 940nm VCSEL arrays for illumination applications. These arrays have an efficiency of >45%, a spectral width of approximately 1nm and a circular beam with divergence of 18 degrees (full angle). The array’s dimensions are 2x2mm and it is normally mounted on submounts.

Open Frame, XY Linear-Motor Stage

Aerotech’s (Pittsburgh, PA) PlanarDLA integrated, open-frame stages have high dynamics and exceptional geometric performance in a low-profile package. These stages are essential for applications ranging from two-sided LED wafer processing where high-dynamics and micrometer-level straightness are required, to quasi-static optical metrology where high-accuracy and precise geometric performance are necessary.

Compact Range LEDs

Mouser Electronics, Inc. (Mansfield, TX) is now stocking LUXEON CoB Compact Range LEDs from Lumileds (San Jose, CA). These LEDs offer high flux densities in a very small light emitting surface (LES), which provides good center beam candle power (CBCP). The Lumileds LUXEON CoB Compact Range LEDs feature a single 6.5mm optical LES that provides high flux densities and high efficacy. Industry-leading thermal resistance allows for smaller heat sinks, and the assembly’s ceramic substrate offers excellent protection in high-potential (HiPot) testing.

Flexible Light Engine Material

Norlux (Elgin, IL) has introduced new NorFlex brand flexible continuous light engine material. The cuttable high-power LED circuits on a semi-rigid material provide 5x the lumen output of low power flex materials. Available on 200-400 ft. reels, the material is cuttable to maximize production flexibility. No special tools required! Most parameters are customizable – width, length, CCTs, LED spacing, power levels, custom components, etc. Both Constant-Current and Constant-Voltage versions are available. NorFlex circuits are designed to provide superior thermal performance, eliminating the need for big heat sinks. Suitable for fixtures with curved surfaces, low profiles or edge-lit.
