02/01/13: single frequency red laser diodes
With its new DBR 633 nm laser diode family, eagleyard Photonics expands its widely introduced Near-IR portfolio into the red. Integrated within the high reliable TO package style, eagleyard’s new GaAs-based DBR laser is capable of providing 10 mW @ 633 nm with a spectral linewidth of 750 kHz and below. The device is also available in a 14-pin standard butterfly package with fiber pigtail and incorporates thermistor, thermo-electric cooler (TEC) and a monitor diode. This proven design ensures a fiber-coupled output power of more than 5 mW. “With our new products we are entering into a new era of single frequency laser diodes” says Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard. “The compact design in conjunction with its narrow linewidth performance, opens new opportunities for eagleyard’s customers as more bulky and power consuming HeNe lasers can now be replaced with our product”. These lasers are commonly used for various scientific and industrial applications involving biological research, spectral analysis, interferometry, metrology, sensing and a broad spectrum of other applications. The product is perfectly suited as an OEM component with its dense small form factor.

01/31/13: RWS cost efficient
High quality and cost effectiveness can perfectly match if combined properly within a single component. This does at least apply to eagleyard’s new stabilized ridge waveguide laser diode series where the narrow line width has been built in already rather than combining a variety of hybrid elements. With its monolithically integrated on-chip wavelength stabilization, this new product line provides an outstanding performance in terms of long-term stability of center wavelength and power. Owing to its excellent uniformity, an outperforming single frequency operation and a line width of less than 0.1pm, even demanding applications such as Raman spectroscopy, metrology and interferometry can be served with these products. The new series of RWS lasers is being offered in a TO package for the following wavelengths: 633/760/785/850/1064/1080 nm. “Complementary to our premium DFB and DBR offering with this new, cost effective RWS product line we are taking an important next step towards securing our long-term competitiveness in the market”, comments Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard. “The new laser series - already chosen by OEM accounts - strengthens eagleyard’s role as a trusted supplier of high power laser diodes, giving customers access to a component solution for cost sensitive applications without having to accept any trade-offs concerning product quality”, explains Kneier further about eagleyard’s motivation of this product launch. Qualified products are available for immediate order.

09/01/11: Pulsed Power beyond 3 Watts
eagleyard‘s newly introduced 808nm TEM00 High Power Laser Diode has now proven its superior performance also in pulsed mode operation. Excellent inductance values have been achieved through optimizing the wiring scheme. Thus resulting in 2 nsec short pulses at repetition rates of 0.5 MHz. The optical peak power is exceeding 3W giving our customers a powerful tool on hand to solve their design challenges.

05/23/11: TEM00 goes 800 mW
eagleyard’s latest product innovation comes with the release of a new high power, single mode, Fabry Perot laser diode with a center wavelength of 808nm and a typical spectral linewidth of around 1nm. With an emitter facet width of just 4µm, the new laser diode emits 800mW of optical power in a TEM00 beam, thus enabling both high power and high brilliance from a single semiconductor laser. The new laser diode has already completed lifetime performance tests under accelerated conditions (1000mW) and over 750 hours with excellent results. A 1W configuration (also single mode) has additionally completed testing by one of eagleyard’s lead customers. The laser diode is available as standard on a C-mount heat sink, all product specifications have been finalised and engineering samples can be ordered immediately. A fiber-pigtailed version is planned for later in 2011, with additional wavelength (e.g. 830nm) to follow. The optical performance provided by the new laser diode makes it ideal for laser scanning and other optical measurement applications, in particular where an optimum beam quality at high power is critical

05/19/11: Robust pulsed power
eagleyard’s new range of high-power semiconductor laser diodes have been designed for a variety of applications requiring a flexible and environmentally-robust pulsed source. The pulse length can be varied between 200ns and 5µs, with duty cycles ranging from 0.1 to 50% and with output power being offered from 8 to 60W, depending on customer needs. Operating wavelengths are currently 808 and 905nm, although alternative wavelengths are already being planned.
According to Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard, “These new laser products have already been extensively tested and qualified by one of our most demanding key customers, so we can be entirely confident of their suitability for demanding applications.”
Kneier emphasizes that these new lasers were especially developed to meet the select performance specifications of the customer. “The ability to use these lasers in extreme conditions represents one of the principal selling points. For example, a specified temperature range from -45 to +90°C and the passing of a set of extreme mechanical stress tests delivers a product designed for the needs of very demanding applications.”
