ams OSRAM showing latest laser and optical sensing technologies at Laser World of Photonics

In booth 526.1 (Hall A2) at the Laser World of Photonics 2023 exhibition in Munich (27-30 June), ams OSRAM GmbH of Premstätten, Austria and Munich, Germany is showcasing how it uses its photonics technologies to develop edge-emitting lasers (EELs), vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) and light-emitting diodes (LEDs) for industrial, robotics, medical and wearables applications in settings as diverse as large warehouses, industrial manufacturing plants, and biomedical laboratories.

“Under the theme of ‘Laser and Sensing Innovation on Point’ at Laser World of Photonics 2023, we will showcase how our ecosystem is using our industry-leading laser diodes to stay ahead of the curve,” says Jörg Heerlein, head of product marketing EMEA for Visualization & Sensing.

Demonstrations include:

Making next-generation 3D sensing and machine vision solutions a reality

  • Small solid-state 3D LiDAR sensor — a 905nm high-power laser diode in a compact SMT package provides the optical power and suitable beam shape for this small and lightweight LiDAR sensor offering a wide field of view and a long detection range;
  • Time-of-flight camera — precise 3D imaging with VGA resolution in real time thanks to a powerful and flood illuminator consisting of a highly efficient 940nm VCSEL in a small SMT package.

Lasers and sensing — a combination for industrial applications

  • Handheld laser marking with blue lasers — the 5W blue laser diode in a TO90 package, PLPT9 450LB_E, is at the heart of this small laser engraving machine;
  • Mobile computer with integrated barcode scanner — a green laser diode with 20mW optical power serves as an efficient and highly visible light source, enables targeting at barcodes even at long distances and in bright daylight. The exhibit features the new generation of visible laser chips from ams OSRAM;
  • Fixed barcode reader — this fully integrated vision system uses a 10mW green laser diode for targeting barcodes and a powerful R/G/B/W Ostar Stage LED, LE RTDUWS2WN, to illuminate the targeted area with the appropriate color when detecting with an image sensor.

Smart solutions for wearables and medical analysis

  • Optical module for augmented reality glasses — a compact and powerful R/G/B/W projection LED with cutting-edge chip technology allows for small near-to-eye projection units enabling lightweight AR glasses;
  • Laser spectroscopy for DNA sequencing — the PLT5 488 laser diode was developed specifically for biomedical applications. It features high brightness, very narrow wavelength binning and ams OSRAM’s Brilliant Beam technology, which suppresses unwanted side lobes in the laser beam.
