Opnext Introduces High-Power Violet Laser Diode for Direct Imaging and Biomedical Lighting Systems

Opnext, producer of optical components and modules, has introduced a 404 nm violet laser diode with a high-power range of 500 mW at the Photonics West 2011 expo, which was held from 25 to 27 January 2011 in San Francisco, California.

The HL40023MG will be utilized for biomedical lighting solutions and direct imaging on printed circuit board (PCB) production surfaces. Producers of such applications are utilizing solid-state laser diodes that are huge and require more power for operation.

According to Opnext, the HL40023MG provides the choice of using an ultra-power diode in a compact housing of 5.6 mm. It offers 400 mW of optical output power for a typical working current of 390 mA. The violet laser diode is slated for volume production in February 2011.

Lumencor has teamed up with Opnext to create a medical lighting system that utilizes an illumination source to execute medical imaging research and tests.

President of Devices Business Unit at Opnext, Tadayuki Kanno commented that the company will continue to design groundbreaking low-current operating diodes as the market trend is shifting toward higher-power laser diodes.
