LX02 - KW VCSEL Line Beam Transmitter for LiDAR
Xi'an, China – [June, 2nd, 2022] – Focuslight Technologies Inc., a global provider of high-power diode lasers and micro-optics, has announced LX02 – a KW VCSEL Line Beam Transmitter Module for LiDAR.
The benefits and advantages of LiDAR have emerged as the technology of autonomous driving evolves. To fulfill the market requirements of safe and intelligent driving, the LiDAR system requires a laser transmitter with not only high reliability but also low cost to enable mass adoption by consumer vehicles.
Currently, EEL technology is still the primary laser choice for LiDAR designers because of its high peak power. VCSEL technology, with development in multiple-junction technology, serves as a novel light source for LiDAR and has gradually been recognized by the market because of its small wavelength temperature coefficient under wide temperatures, higher reliability under harsh environments, and lower cost at high volumes.
The wide adoption of VCSELs in smartphones in recent years also lays a good foundation for the development of automotive LiDAR applications with mature technology and supply chain. VCSEL line beam transmitter modules have generally compared with the EEL-based version. Additional temperature stabilization elements such as TEC are therefore not necessary.
Line beam scanning is a novel and promising automotive-grade LiDAR architecture for long-range detection. This scheme generally requires a line-shaped laser beam with overall high brightness and small divergence at the horizontal axis as a light source, which will be scanned by a rotating mirror.
As the successor of LX01, LX02 pioneers in the line beam laser transmitting based on VCSEL and pushes the boundaries of the LiDAR solutions further. The laser transmitter utilizes state-of-the-art 5J high-power VCSEL chips and Focuslight’s unique beam shaping optics to emit 1 kW peak power with < 0.15° horizontal divergence while achieving a typical vertical FOV of 23° with high uniformity (> 90%). It is also delivered with an embedded laser driver powered by GaN FET fast switch, releasing ultra-short (width < 5ns) pulses.
The product is designed for integration into LiDAR systems. It also has uses in light detection, 3D sensing, and industrial sensing application.

The UV Line for Solid State Laser Lift-Off (LLO) from Focuslight Technologies has been successfully used for years in the lift-off field of OLEDs in the production of flexible mobile phone displays.
The development team at Focuslight has now enhanced the optical design far enough that the Gaussian profiles can be turned into a line with a length of up to 1000 mm and a width of 30 µm. The new features include significantly steeper edges and a wider intensity maximum. This allows an increased productivity by more than 30%. In addition, the sensitive OLEDs are subjected to lower thermal loads (lower ash value), yields are higher, and the OLED displays produced have a longer lifespan.
For the laser lift-off process of displays, we offer UV-Lines with different line lengths from 100 mm to 1000 mm. In addition to complete systems with long lines for integration into production, Focuslight also offers cost-effective systems with shorter lines, which can be used in advance in the process development.

The wafer-based production technology produces polished wafers up to 300 × 300 mm², making it possible to produce tens of thousands of lenses from high-grade glass and crystal in a single process step, with a consistently high level of quality. Combined with a significantly expanded production capacity, Focuslight’s highly productive and cost-efficient operations mean that the company can sustainably meet the growing global demand for optics in innovative photonics- and laser-based applications and technologies well into the future. The surface shape of every single lens of a micro-lens array can be individually designed to yield the best intensity distribution, while our high-precision manufacturing process on a wafer basis provides a high rate of repeatability and reproducibility. Combined with the choice of various glasses and an ISO9001 qualified coating, we can offer a wide spectrum of long-life micro-optics solutions.
