cryogenic lasersS Ecryogenic lasers from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS’s scientists and engineers have helped to pioneer the development of cryogenic lasers and offers high-energy (Joule-class) and high-average power (kilowatt-class) lasers.

educational laser kitsSeducational laser kits from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS’ has signed an exclusive agreement to represent Dr. Luhs Engineering Offices in North America to distribute, service, and support all educational optics, lasers, telecom, and laser applications modules. These modules, developed by Dr. Walter Luhs Photonik Ingenieurbüro in Germany, are educational modules that teach the basic principles of optics and lasers, and applications thereof, on college and professional school level.

fiber-coupled diode lasersS Efiber-coupled diode lasers from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS' new Integrated Laser System (ILS-445) product line features a family of high-power 445-nm fiber-coupled blue lasers assembled into fully integrated systems, available in various powers (50 W, 100 W, 150 W, and 200 W). These systems are enclosed in standard 19″ rack cabinets, integrating the laser, high-efficiency power supply, and thermo-electric chiller. Laser diode modules can be purchased separately.

green lasersS Egreen lasers from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS offers the MicroGreen™ Series, which is a diode-pumped solid-state laser packaged in a 5.6 mm diameter can. The MicroGreen is available in power ratings up to 80 mW in TEM00 mode. The alignment-free optical design is also both rugged and reliable; and its high optical-to-optical conversion efficiency allows the laser to be battery powered. Applications include tool alignment, machine vision, aiming guide, and the green color source in micro-displays.

laser development servicesS Elaser development services from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS contributes to laser and nonlinear materials collaborations, with Clemson University, the US Army Research Laboratory, Blue Ridge Optics, and others. Our company has a robust laser materials research program, with a complete spectroscopy laboratory used to characterize new and legacy laser and nonlinear materials. Absorption and emission cross-sections can be obtained at room temperature and cryogenic temperatures down to about 77 K. We can also generate emission measurements in the range from 300 nm to 1700 nm. This laser material knowledge reservoir, combined with our laser experience, allows APS to offer and efficiently execute unique solid-state laser development programs.

laser diode modulesS Elaser diode modules from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS’ new Cool Photons Module is a robust water-cooled assembly that allows easy setup and operation of high-power laser diodes, while also providing cooling and temperature monitoring. Compatible diodes can be found on APS website under high power visible laser diodes.

laser engraving machinerySlaser engraving machinery from Advanced Photonic Sciences

Lasertack's 6-watt blue diode laser is offered for laser engraving, marking, and cutting applications. With the Spot Creator beam-forming optics, spot sizes down to 50 µm are achievable. The device can serve as a high-intensity source for micro-machining of wood, plastics, metals, anodized aluminum, stone, tile, and other materials.

microchip lasersS Emicrochip lasers from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS offers microchip lasers emitting at green and infrared wavelengths. For example, the Snake Creek Lasers MicroGreen™ Series is a diode-pumped solid-state laser packaged in a 5.6 mm diameter can – the world’s smallest microchip laser with 532-nm output. An eye-safe version emitting at 1550 nm is also available.

OEM laser modulesS EOEM laser modules from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS offers WTR Series, which is an industrial-grade OEM laser module, proven for operation in wide ambient temperature conditions and to withstand severe shock and vibration conditions. With large drive-voltage acceptance range (10 to 50 Vdc), the WTR is easy to integrate into OEM applications. The WTR is currently available with output powers up to 50 mW at 532 nm and 30 mW at 635 nm wavelengths. Beam-forming optics are available to project dot, line, or cross hair in the single-beam configuration; and dot, line, or a combination thereof, in the dual-beam configuration, respectively.

optical breadboardsS Eoptical breadboards from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS offers CarbonVision’s program of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) optical breadboards in the United States and Canada. CFRP boards provide similar thermal stability compared to Super Invar but at a lower cost and are inherently non-magnetic. Beside low-weight high-strength attributes, CFRP boards exhibit low-resonant frequencies and can be constructed for dynamic and/or vacuum applications.

optical tablesS Eoptical tables from Advanced Photonic Sciences

APS offers CarbonVision’s program of Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) optical breadboards, tables and specialty products in the United States and Canada. Compared to stainless-steel, CFRP benches and structures exhibit high-strength, low-frequency resonances and vacuum compatibility attributes.
