Toptica has launched the iBeam Smart PT, a compact, permanently fibre-coupled ('pigtailed') diode laser, designed for straightforward OEM integration.
It includes Toptica's COOLDC technology, which guarantees ultimate long-term power stability and thus ensures true drop-shipment capability. These features make the iBeam smart PT the ideal choice for fibre-based applications in biophotonics, such as microscopy or cytometry.
The standard wavelengths are 405nm (60mW), 445nm (50mW), 488nm (50mW), 515nm (20mW), 640nm (80mW), 660nm (75mW) and 785nm (70mW) – all powers are given after the singlemode polarisation maintaining fibre delivery. Other wavelengths are available on request.
The iBeam smart PT features the COOLDC technology – which ensures a Dura Calibrated Constant Optical Output Level. Toptica's novel concept for high power single-mode permanently fibre coupled lasers does not use any micro-mechanical adjustable parts. These are normally the first to shift due to varying ambient conditions, for example temperature changes or vibrations. All major optical components are solidly mounted, thus optical alignment is immune to mechanical and thermal distortions or translations.
The incorporated microprocessor control and optional features such as high speed digital modulation and feedback-induced noise suppression by FINE technology make the iBeam smart PT the perfect solution for flexible OEM integration.
