Laser Components has announced that all Flexpoint laser modules are now available with green 520nm laser diodes, a viable alternative to conventional frequency-doubled DPSS solid-state lasers.

The semiconductor lasers, which emit at 520nm, can be integrated into dot lasers, line lasers, cross-hair lasers and all the company’s machine vision lasers, including MVfemto, MVpico, MVnano, MVmicro and MV12.

Two laser diodes are available — one with an output power of 30mW and the other with an output power of 50mW — both of which can be set to operate at lower power levels in production.

All power levels of less than or equal to 50mW can be achieved with green Flexpoint laser modules.

Advantages of a direct green laser diode compared with a DPSS laser

  • Smaller housing designs
  • Better stability of the optical output power
  • Significantly faster modulation with shorter rise times
  • Lower temperature sensitivity
  • Higher operating temperature up to 60°C
  • Less power consumption
