Ushio America showcasing new laser and LED products at Photonics West

In North Hall booth 5169 at SPIE Photonics West 2019 in San Francisco, CA, USA (2-7 February), light source manufacturer Ushio America Inc of Cypress, CA, USA (a subsidiary of Ushio Inc of Tokyo, Japan) is exhibiting new lighting solutions including products from the Necsel, Pd-Ld, Ushio Inc and Ushio Opto Semiconductors brands.

Established in 1964, Ushio Inc of Tokyo, Japan produces lamps, lasers and LEDs in a range of ultraviolet, visible and infrared wavelengths, as well as optical equipment and cinema-related products incorporating these light sources.

Ushio is demonstrating high-power visible lasers, including red, green, blue and multi-wavelength modules that feature Necsel’s patented technology. A new addition to its family of laser products, Necsel Yellow, produces 1W of power at 577nm from a package of less than one cubic inch. Ushio says that Necsel‘s lasers have transformed cinema projection and specialty lighting markets, as well as developed a broad application base across a variety of industries.

Ushio is also showcasing Pd-Ld fiber-coupled emitters and detectors, which includes single-mode and multi-mode fiber-coupled diode lasers. This product family is often used in communication and instrumentation applications within the OEM and end-user marketplace.

In addition, Ushio Opto Semiconductors Inc (UOS) is exhibiting its new high-power red laser diodes, continuous broad band spectrum LEDs, and high-power short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) LEDs. UOS is introducing a new record-power 3.5W (pulsed)/2.4W (cw) multi-mode laser diode emitting at 638nm, as well as a 300mW pulsed single-mode laser diode at 685nm and a 200mW CW single-mode laser diode at 660-690nm.

UOS is also debuting its epitex Spectro series, a new category of continuous broad-band-spectrum LEDs emitting at 400-1000nm. Additionally, its SWIR LED series, which achieves what is claimed to be the highest output power within the 1000–1650nm range, will increase its available power by 100% and include the new wavelength of 1750nm.

Also, at 10:20 a.m. on 3 February, Ushio America’s president & CEO William F. Mackenzie is presenting on how advances in Ushio’s laser products are enabling more applications. “Over the last 10 years, Ushio has grown its solid-state solutions business through lasers, LEDs, modules and systems,” says Mackenzie. “Improvements in epitaxy, laser packages and modules are supporting dramatic reductions in the cost of laser light, thereby creating new applications and markets.”
