PbS/PbSe detectors have TO-39 or TO-8 housing

PbS/PbSe detectors have TO-39 or TO-8 housing
Two or four single lead-salt detector elements are assembled within a single TO-39 or TO-8 housing each with its own IR optical filter, supplied from either one of many LASER COMPONENTS’ standard optical filters or a custom designed optical filter. Free issue filters or windows can also be used. The popular detector element of choice measures 1mm x 1mm square. Single channel detectors usually employ 2mm x 2mm square elements.

DC/DC high voltage modules

DC/DC high voltage modules
For use with its range of avalanche photodiodes, LASER COMPONENTS is a supplier of DC/DC high voltage modules capable of providing up to 380V from a 5V input voltage. Three versions are available; the dBC-120-3x, providing output voltages in the range 1 -120V, the dBC-220-3x for 1-220V and, for larger APDs requiring higher voltages up to 380V, the dBC-380-5x. All three modules feature a compact housing (21 x 21 x 8.3mm), ideal for small-footprint designs.

Avalanche photon detector modules offer peak powers of up to 220W

Avalanche photon detector modules offer peak powers of up to 220W
To complement LASER COMPONENTS' avalanche photon detector modules (the A-CUBE range), they have introduced the LS-series of pulsed laser diode modules. Available with peak wavelengths of 850, 905 and 1550nm and peak powers of up to 220W, these modules offer all the features needed to safely drive pulsed lasers of different powers.

New developments in optical fibres for medical applications

New developments in optical fibres for medical applications
The variety of wavelengths and the high optical powers required create many of the demands in medical and industrial applications. Laser Components can provide a wide range of fibre types including sapphire for Er:YAG lasers and hollow core for infrared wavelengths, as well as a range of silica and plastic optical fibres.

In-house production capabilities extended

In-house production capabilities extended
Single-mode cables and polarisation maintaining fibres have now been included in the in-house production facility of LASER COMPONENTS. The standard cables are equipped with FC/PC or FC/APC connectors and can be produced for the standard telecom wavelength at 1,550nm to a wavelength of 450nm. Other connector types are available upon request.

Conversion cards for infrared radiation

Conversion cards for infrared radiation
Two new converter cards for infrared radiation have been added the range of conversion screens available from Laser Components. The LDT-008TL can be used to convert laser radiation from 800 to 1,600nm into red visible light (except for the incident range of 950 to 980nm for which it emits in green).

Voltage mode vs current mode

Voltage mode vs current mode
Both voltage mode and current mode pyroelectric detectors are manufactured by LASER COMPONENTS. Voltage mode detectors are simple JFET source follower based devices converting a high impedance input to a low impedance output. Voltage mode operation does have the advantage of being capable of giving the highest D* (at 10Hz) with a relatively simple circuit with very flexible amplification. Voltage mode devices are not without their failures; producing relatively low signal and a strongly temperature dependent offset.

Superluminescence diodes feature output power of 10mW

Superluminescence diodes feature output power of 10mW
A superluminescence diode (SLED) is equivalent to a laser diode without a resonator, offering the brightness of a laser diode with the low coherence of LEDs via amplified spontaneous emission. Similar to edge-emitting laser diodes, SLEDs have a p-n junction and are operated under forward bias.

High-performance pyroelectric detectors with DLaTGS

High-performance pyroelectric detectors with DLaTGS
The basic material of pyroelectric detectors with the highest performance level is DLaTGS (Deuterated and L-alanine-doped TriGlycine Sulfate). The D* of DLaTGS is typically 2.5 times higher than in LiTaO3 detectors. DLaTGS detectors have a high detectivity, even at high frequencies, and a wide spectral sensitivity range from UV to THz wavelengths that is only limited by the detector window used.
