Photon Lines is distributing Omicron's new LightHUB-Ultra laser light engine in France, the UK and Ireland.  

This new model can be equipped with one to seven laser modules of different wavelengths from UV to the near IR range and offers fast analogue intensity modulation of up to 1.5MHz and digital full ON/OFF modulation with a switching time of <1µs for each channel. The individual laser modules can be easily exchanged and added by the user. Hence the systems can be adapted to changing application requirements and are future-proof.

With direct and active temperature control of the laser modules and the complete laser bed it is possible to keep the output powers of the lasers ultra-stable. This feature guarantees reliable and repeatable results in the most critical life science applications. The light of the various lasers is combined and coupled efficiently into one or two polarization-maintaining single-mode broadband or multi-mode optical fibres. The LightHUB Ultra offers the possibility to integrate a fast fibre-switch or a fibre splitter with defined splitting ratio.

Laser modules with up to 300 milliwatt of optical output power and wavelengths between 375 and 1,550nm can be used in all versions the LightHUB system. Optional clean-up filters and a fail-safe laser safety shutter can be directly installed in the system to adapt the LightHUB Ultra system to the customer’s application and safety requirements. High-impedance modulation inputs ensure easy interfacing to external devices like cameras, microscopes or DAC cards. The device can be conveniently controlled via the integrated USB-2.0 interface using supplied software called Omicron Control Center (OCC) or third party software. Software drivers for Metamorph, LabVIEW and Micromanager are readily available.
