ProPhotonix appointed distributor of Osram Opto’s green and blue direct diode lasers

ProPhotonix Ltd of Salem, NH, USA, a designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules as well as a distributor of laser diodes, has been appointed distributor for Osram Opto Semiconductors range of green and blue laser diodes.

The product range includes single-mode green laser diodes PL520 with 50mW optical output in the 515-530nm range and PL 515 at 30mW output power at 510-530nm. The PL450B is a single-mode blue laser diode with 80mW optical output at 440-460nm.

All three single-mode laser diodes are packaged in 3.8mm-diameter TO cans and feature low beam divergence, long lifetime and stability across a broad temperature range. Where the human eye perceives green light more readily than red light, these new green diodes will augment application solutions in alignment and targeting for medical, industrial and defense markets. They also are suited to use in pico-projector and display applications. The blue diode lasers are suited to medical and analytical applications.

Higher-power, multi-mode laser diodes like the PL TB450, with a 1.4W optical output in the blue 440-460nm range, share the beam quality and lifetime advantages of their single-mode equivalents.

“We are delighted to provide our customers new solutions by adding these innovative new products from Osram to our range of high-performance red, infra-red and blue-violet laser diodes that we currently stock and distribute from Oclaro, QSI, Sony and Ondax,” said ProPhotonix’s chairman & CEO Mark W. Blodgett. “Many of our customers will benefit from the compactness and efficiency of these devices. In addition we expect to open up significant new markets which, until now, have been difficult to develop using established technologies.”
