1x4 Pulsed Laser Diode Array

Excelitas Technologies® Corp. (Waltham, MA) has introduced a 1x4 Pulsed Laser Diode Array for LiDAR applications. The new laser array combines Excelitas’ high-efficiency, multi-cavity laser chip technology with small form-factor surface mount device (SMD) packaging for applications requiring high reliability, such as autonomous vehicles and drones.

Unlike single-pixel lasers, the 1x4 linear configuration enables each pixel to be situated in very close proximity to its neighbor - minimizing space requirements and supporting the use of smaller, less costly optical components. Each laser pixel can have up to four emitting stripes, allowing very high per-channel optical power levels in excess of 85 W for long-range detection with minimal power consumption.

Microscopy Cameras

Basler AG (Exton, PA/Ahrensburg, Germany) now supplements its PowerPacks for Microscopy with additional Microscopy ace camera models. The Microscopy ace 3.2 MP and Microscopy ace 5.1 MP, equipped with Sony's high-quality Pregius sensors, provide up to 55 images per second. The Microscopy ace 1.3 MP 160 and Microscopy ace 1.3 MP 200, using ON Semiconductor sensors, reach a resolution of 1.3 MP at up to 200 images per second.

All Basler PowerPacks for Microscopy now include a sharpening feature to optimize the image for depth of focus. White balance capabilities have been improved to make the white color appear more pure and radiant. Each microscopy camera comes with a USB 3.0 cable, installation guide, and professional microscopy software.

High-Speed Camera

Vision Research (Wayne, NJ) has released the Phantom® Flex4K-GS, a high-speed camera with a 35-mm, 9.4-megapixel sensor and global shutter. The Flex4K-GS employs a custom sensor capable of recording 1,000 frames per second (fps) at 4K resolution. The camera's global shutter ensures that every pixel is exposed to light at the exact same moment in time, preventing motion artifacts and ensuring timing precision throughout the entirety of each frame. Isolated electronics and a thermal design allow an operating temperature range from -20 °C to 50 °C.

The Flex4K-GS is available with either 64GB or 128GB of RAM. Additionally, uncompressed raw or compressed video can be saved in the Apple ProRes 422 HQ video format. When working with ProRes, a 2TB CineMag-IV will hold several hours’ worth of footage. Other features include 5 μs minimum exposure; 3G-SDI video outputs; and Dual-SDI mode for simultaneous live video and playback.
