OSI Laser Diode Introduces InGaAs Avalanche Photodiode

OSI Laser Diode Introduces InGaAs Avalanche Photodiode

New LAPD 3050 avalanche photodiode module is ideal for light level detection and signal-transmission applications.

EDISON, N.J. - Feb. 15, 2017 - PRLog—OSI Laser Diode, Inc. (LDI), an OSI Systems Company, introduces the LAPD 3050, an indium gallium arsenide (InGaAs) avalanche photodiode (APD) module that is designed for light level detection and/or signal transmission applications.  The new 50 µm active area device features low dark current, low back reflection, and high speed (2.5 Ghz) in a miniature package.  With spectral response from 1000 nm to 1650 nm at 25 degrees C, the typical operational wavelength is 1550 nm.

The APD is housed in a hermetically sealed 3-pin coaxial package and coupled to a single-mode fiber pigtail. The overload-tolerant LAPD 3050 device is ideal for use in optical time-domain reflectometers (OTDRs), line receivers, and long haul applications. The breakdown voltage is from 50 V (min.) to 70 V (max.) and operating and storage temperatures range from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C.

OSI LDI Announces 905nm Pulsed Laser Diode w/ Integrated Micro Lens

OSI LDI Announces 905nm Pulsed Laser Diode w/ Integrated Micro Lens

***New CVN 63-90ECL is hermetically sealed for field-deployed range finders apps.

Edison, NJ- April 19, 2016 - OSI Laser Diode, Inc (LDI)
, an OSI Systems company, introduces the CVN 63-90ECL, a 905nm pulsed laser diode with an integrated micro lens. The device offers a far-field beam pattern with equivalent divergence values (8 x 8 degrees FWHM) for both the Fast (perpendicular) and the Slow (parallel) axes of emission. The adjusted far-field pattern offers higher coupling efficiency into standard spherical lens systems, making the diode ideal for critical defense applications.

Hermetically sealed in a robust 9mm package for survivability in harsh environmental conditions, the pulsed laser diode is well suited for demanding military tasks such as field-deployed range finders. the RoHS-compliant devices operates from 895nm (min.) to 915nm (max.), with typical wavelength operation at 905nm. Peak power is 75W (min.) pulse width is 100 nanoseconds(typ) and the drive current is typically 30 A. Storage temperatures range from -40 degrees C to +85 degrees C; the typical operating temperature is 25 degrees C.

OSI Laser Diode’s new CVN 63-90ECL joins the previously announced CVLL 350-CL90 pulsed laser diode with intergrated micro lens that operates at 1550nm. To learn more about these and other advanced optoelectronic products, please visit: www.laserdiode.com

OSI Laser Diode Introduces Triple Wavelength TCW RGB TriBiner Visible Laser

OSI Laser Diode Introduces Triple Wavelength TCW RGB TriBiner Visible Laser

Edison, NJ March 10, 2016 - OSI Laser Diode, Inc (LDI) an OSI Systems Company, announces the innovative TCW TriBiner fiber-coupled lasers, the TCW RGBM-105R The new triple wavelength device is a red, green, and blue (RGB) laser diode module that has been specifically designed to meet strict efficiency footprint requirements of the visible laser display market. The module couples all three wavelengths, 450nm, 520nm, and 638nm, into a single output fiber pigtail. There are various fiber pigtail options available, depending on your application needs. OSI Laser Diode will showcase the new TCW TriBiner visible laser diode module at OFC in booth #3901, Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, CA, March 22-24, 2016.

The optical power is typically 35 mW (operating at 25 degrees C) and spectral width (FWHM) is 2nm for all three wavelengths. The continuous wave (CW) threshold current is: 30 mA for the 450nm wavelength; 40 mA for the 520 wavelength; and 50 mA for the 638nm wavelength. The operating temperature range (at rated drive conditions) is from -20 to +50 degrees C; storage temperature (non-operational) range from -40 to +85 degrees C.

Typical applications for OSI Laser Diode’s new TCW RGBM-105R TriBiner include RGB displays, RGB projectors, and optical sensors. The RoHS compliant devices are available for shipping now. To learn more, please visit OSI LDI’s booth at #3901 at OFC or visit: www.laserdiode.com
