LASER COMPONENTS implemented their pulsed laser diodes in a small, shielded metal housing; operation of the so-called “CUBE” modules. This requires a trigger signal and a standard 12 VDC voltage supply. The CUBE can be integrated into an optical bench.
The L-CUBE houses pulsed laser diodes, available in three wavelengths: 850 nm (up to 10 W), 905 nm (up to 200 W), and 1550 nm (up to 40 W). Both the power and the pulse length between 30 ns and 150 ns can be flexibly adjusted, either via rotary potentiometers directly at the housing or digitally on the computer via an RS232 port. This provides leeway in picking the device parameters and makes it possible to vary certain parameters during operation. Another advantage of the L-CUBE is the costs that are saved during the development and testing phase: with a single pulsed laser module, a wide range of pulse duration and pulse power combinations can be achieved. OEM versions and custom modules of all CUBE models are available upon request.
