New World Record: Peak Performance of Pulsed laser diodes Up to 650 Watts at 905 nm in a TO-18 Housing

Peak Performance of Pulsed Laser Diodes at 650 W

LASER COMPONENTS Canada has set a new world record with its pulsed laser

diodes at 905 nm: peak power levels of up to 650 W emitted from a small TO-18
housing and are available on a standard basis.

These PLDs are based on "multi-junction" laser technology: This special laser technology
contains several epitaxially integrated emitters with a total emitting area of 200 μm
x 10 μm. At a pulse length of 150 ns, it is possible to achieve a peak performance
of at least 70 W from a single chip. The metal housing allows a higher thermal load,
which permits overdriving the diode and ultimately leads to the achievement of an
output of up to 650 W from a stacked array design. Due to the combination of a small
emitter area and an extremely high peak performance, the new 3J08 series is optimally
suited for fiber coupling.

These pulsed laser diodes are used in low-level laser therapy, among other things. This
is an alternative (veterinary) medical treatment that is carried out using monochromatic
and coherent light. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain, accelerate the healing of
wounds, and fight infections.

Further areas of application include rangefinding, speed guns, laser radar, security
scanners, laser light curtains, and test and measurement systems.

ST Robotics - R17HS-6, the 6-axis version of the high speed R17 variant

The 6-axis version of the R17HS high speed variant of the R17 robot is now available. As is our policy the 6th axis is an optional bolt-on module. At the same time we have made it even faster and new software eliminates shake and greatly improves repeatability as this video shows. Please see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wG0MeiJ-yE. The video would seem to imply a repeatability of 0.01mm but we are sticking with 0.2mm in the spec. The motor specialist was able to tune the motors from the other side of the pond. My first reaction when we put power on and entered the first commands was to jump back in amazement (and maybe an expletive). Tip speed is now 3m/s; that's 3 times as fast as its nearest competitor yet costs half the price. I love it when a plan comes together.
