ProPhotonix extends laser module range via distribution agreement with Integrated Optics
ProPhotonix Ltd of Salem, NH, USA, a designer and manufacturer of LED illumination systems and laser diode modules for OEMs and medical equipment companies (as well as a distributor of laser diodes for Ushio, Osram, QSI, Panasonic and Sony) has announced a new partnership to distribute the laser module range of Integrated Optics UAB of Vilnius, Lithuania (an ISO9001:2015-certified manufacturer of compact laser sources for spectroscopy and LiDAR applications).
As a provider of laser technologies to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) worldwide, ProPhotonix offers a range to suit specific application needs. Integrated Optics’ Matchbox and ARA laser series will complement ProPhotonix’ existing laser range, providing additional configurable laser module platforms for a broad range of applications and opening new market opportunities for ProPhotonix. Customized solutions are also available for more specific applications.
The MatchBox Series encompasses continuous-wave lasers, four-wavelength diode combiners, and Q-Switch nanosecond lasers. Offering simplicity of integration and ease of use, the compact series provides power, consistency and high performance in one of the smallest packages in the world, it is claimed. With over 150 off-the-shelf product configurations, the laser module platform provides a solution for applications including microscopy, spectroscopy (fluorescence spectroscopy, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy), medical diagnostics, flow cytometry, LiDAR, metrology, holography, and UV curing.
The ARA series of high-power wavelength combiners offers an original design incorporating four Matchbox lasers of differing wavelengths in a single unit. The series is suited to microscopy and spectroscopy applications.
“There are clear synergies between our companies’ approach to the laser module market,” believes Integrated Optics’ CEO Evaldas Pabrėža. “ProPhotonix’ global sales team allows for Integrated Optics products to be offered to a much wider customer base,” he adds.
“Like ProPhotonix, Integrated Optics offers configurable platforms as well as custom solutions to suit specific application needs,” says Jeremy Lane, managing director of ProPhotonix Ltd UK. “As a result of this agreement, ProPhotonix extends the range of products it offers to OEMs,” he adds. “Several existing customers have already expressed an interest in solutions combining the technologies of our two companies, including a recent MatchBox qualification and order in the amount of $185,000.”
