A multi-wavelength laser featuring 4 laser diodes integrated within an ultra-compact 'Matchbox' housing with an SMA port (for MM fiber). A classical dichroic mirror combining technique is used in combination with our proprietary micro-optics assembly to make this system both economical and compact. All optics and electronics are fitted into the 'Matchbox' housing. Combined wavelengths are standard for use in Life Sciences, Food sorting, Metrology, and Medical applications. An easy-to-use PC interface and separate TTL inputs allow full control over the individual wavelengths.

  • Four wavelengths
  • Plug-and-play
  • Single user interface for all 4 wavelengths
  • Space-saving design
  • No optics realignment
  • Remote PC control

1 The optical power can be tuned from virtually 0% to 100%. However, other specifications, such as central wavelength, power stability, noise, polarization ratio, beam shape, quality and circularity are not guaranteed at power levels other than factory preset power. Significantly worse power stability is to be expected at very low power levels, e.g. <3% from specified nominal power.

2 The long term power test is carried out at constant laser body temperature (+/-0.1 ‎°C) using an optical power meter with an input bandwidth of 10 Hz. The actual measurement rate has a period of about 20 seconds to 1 minute.

3 Noise level is measured with a fast photodiode connected to an oscilloscope. The overall system bandwidth is from 2 kHz to 20 MHz.

4 The break-out-box AM-C9 can be used for conversion of UART communication to USB.

5 TTL digital modulation up to 10 MHz.

6 Excluding control interface pins and an output window/fiber assembly.

7 Whichever occurs first.

Drawing of Multi-Wavelength Laser

Flow Cytometry

Flow cytometry is a sophisticated analytical technique widely used in biomedical research and clinical diagnostics. It allows for the simultaneous analysis of multiple physical and chemical characteristics of cells or particles as they flow through a laser beam. By utilizing fluorescence and light-scattering principles, flow cytometry provides valuable insights into cell populations, allowing researchers to study cell morphology, identify cell types, and assess various cellular functions with high-throughput precision.

Confocal Microscopy

Confocal microscopy is a powerful imaging technique used in biological and materials science research. By employing point illumination and a spatial pinhole, confocal microscopy eliminates out-of-focus light, resulting in sharper, high-resolution images. This method enables three-dimensional imaging of specimens with exceptional optical sectioning, making it valuable for studying biological structures and dynamic processes at the cellular and subcellular levels.
