Vortran Laser Technology, a supplier of advanced instrumentation and diode laser modules for industrial and biomedical use, has introduced its Stradus 488nm diode laser module, featuring 50mW output power. The newest product in Vortran's Stradus family line has been designed as an affordable alternative to standard, high-power DPSS lasers, which are commonly used in flow cytometry and microscopy applications. This innovative model features digital modulation up to 200MHz, with analogue modulation at ≥ 500KHz.
The Stradus product line and the new 488nm diode laser module features include M²:1.25 (typical) and greater than 90 per cent circularity. Beam dimensions are 1.3mm diameter for all wavelengths, the pointing stability is less than 5 µrad/ºC, and the module offers low RMS noise (less than 0.1 per cent from 10Hz to 10MHz).
Vortran's 488nm high-power-output diode laser module is compatible with both USB and RS232 interfaces, and offers automatic thermal control of the diode and all optical elements' temperature for superior alignment and pointing stability. It is ideal for OEM tasks in a variety of areas, such as medical diagnostics, defect analysis, confocal microscopy, R&D, and laboratory applications.
