high power 633nm red laser diode poised to smash He-Ne Gas laser market
uncompromising performance for biomedical, inspection and measurement markets
PRESS RELEASE: February 2014
The Optoelectronics Company, a leading global manufacturer of innovative optoelectronic components and distributor of Ushio laser diodes and Panasonic glass lenses, has announced the launch of the Ushio HL63163DG: a tiny red laser diode that delivers 100mW single-transverse-mode optical output power at 633nm in the visible wavelength band.
a realistic alternative to expensive He-Ne gas lasers
The Ushio HL63163DG presents system designers with a long-awaited and realistic alternative to large, expensive and wasteful He-Ne gas lasers. This diode is compact, both cost and energy-efficient and offers increased measurement speed, stability and accuracy, all the essential performance characteristics for biomedical and industrial applications, previously only achievable when using He-Ne gas lasers.
Ushio HL63163DG specifications
Building on advancements in laser technologies, the HL63163DG AlGaInP laser diode was designed to operate at 100mW optical output in the 633nm wavelength band with a low power consumption of only 0.4W in a 5.6mm TO industry-standard package with TE mode oscillation. It has a low operating current of 170mA (typ.), threshold current of 70mA (typ.), operating voltage of 2.6V (typ.) and LD reverse voltage of 2V. Operating temperature is from -10 to +40 degrees Centigrade.
The Ushio HL63163DG will be in full, volume production from January 2014. Please contact the Optoelectronics Company to request samples for testing.
Ushio's high performance laser diodes are proven to consume a low operating current which extends battery life whilst maintaining the integrity of the laser diode power in a variety of applications such as inspection, measurement and biomedical applications and as a light source for optical equipment.
Ushiohigh performance laser diodes are available from the Optoelectronics Company.
