Product Overview:

488nm, 100mW Blue Laser Diode Source System Overview

This plug-and-play laser source leverages Coherent's extensive diode laser experience to deliver high quality laser diode light, with industry-leading reliability and performance. The blue 488nm fiber-coupled laser diode source system is available at 30mW and 100mW ex-fiber output power.

The laser diode source delivers low-noise output, and for applications requiring even lower peak-to-peak noise, a 488nm Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser system is available in a range of output powers: 40mW, 60mW, 80mW, and 120mW.

The OBIS Series laser source systems cover the wavelength spectrum from 375nm (Ultraviolet) to 980nm (near-Infrared), and are perfect for flow cytometry and fluorescence spectroscopy applications.

Complete Turn-Key Blue Laser Diode Source System

The complete OBIS system includes: the laser head and remote controller, power supply, interconnect cable, and the output fiber with the high-reliability extended-life output interface. The fiber output face is angled at 8º to prevent back-reflection, and since it designed for ultra high reliability, it is not compatible with standard FC/APC fiber connectors. The laser system is controlled remotely via USB or RS232, and the PC control software is included.

The OBIS system is remarkably simple to set up on the bench top: connect the power cable, the I/O cable from the controller to the laser head, and the USB cable from the controller to the computer.

Quick Start Guide


This video above summarizes the process, including mounting the laser head on the optional heatsink. Control inputs are located on the laser head for OEM applications where the laser head is directly controlled with custom software.

The OBIS system provides features to ensure a long operating lifetime, and to help protect the user while operating the laser. The key switch prevents unauthorized use, and the interlock connection allows a safety switch to be wired. The OBIS remote controller includes a front panel Fault indicator, as well as a Laser Ready and Laser On indicator. Accommodation is provided for driving a cooling fan, and for simplified temperature stabilization the OBIS laser head can be mounted to the OBIS fan-heatsink.

Operating Flexibility with Multiple Modulation Modes

The OBIS laser system can be operated in CW mode, or modulated in multiple modes: analog signals, digital signals, and combined analog/digital signals. The laser can be modulated to full-off output, ensuring no photons are emitted. LS modules can be modulated to full-off output using the digital modulation mode. The LX modules can be modulated to full-off using the analog modulation mode with a Blanking Enabled feature.

Wide Selection of OBIS Laser Source Systems

The turn-key OBIS laser sources are available in a wide range of wavelengths and output powers, either fiber-coupled or with a free-space output, and multiple sources can be simultaneously operated from a single computer. When application requirements change, laser heads of different wavelengths are effortlessly interchanged on the bench.

A range of multi-laser accessories are available: two six-laser controller models for OEM and benchtop applications, a machined heatsink with cooling fan attached, and an integrated mounting and control system that incorporates laser controllers, modulation inputs, and thermal management for five different OBIS laser heads.
