Product Overview:

514nm, 30mW Blue Laser Source System Overview

These plug-and-play laser sources utilize Coherent's Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL) technology to deliver industry-best laser reliability and performance. The blue-green 514nm OBIS LX fiber-coupled source system is available at 30mW ex-fiber output power. The 514nm source can also be purchased in the OBIS LS version at 15 mW output; the LS operates at lower noise, but has a lower modulation bandwidth.

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

OBIS LX/LS lasers deliver high optical power with low noise, and high beam quality. The flexibility of the plug-and-play system allows users to rapidly integrate the laser, reducing set-up time and time-to-market in OEM applications, and reducing cost. The highly-functional OBIS LS/LX Systems are ideal for scientific, laboratory, and spectroscopic applications.

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.

Complete Turn-Key Blue Laser Source System

The complete OBIS system includes: the laser head and remote controller, power supply, all the cables, and the output fiber with FC/APC termination. The laser system is controlled remotely via USB or RS232, and the PC control software is included.

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 temperature stabilization the OBIS laser head can be mounted to the OBIS fan-heatsink.

Laser Heads Available Individually

The OBIS-series laser heads also are available separately (without the controller and power supply) with either free-space or fiber-coupled output. This flexibility allows the wavelengths to be easily reconfigured when applications requirements change. Inquire for these and other options.

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.
