  • GLDM-520 OEM Green Laser Diode Modules

    Laserex announces a significant advance in laser technology to produce green laser diode beams (GLDM) at a wavelength of 520nm. The GLDM series produce light that is more sensitive to the human eye than red lasers, making them ideal for use where a bright, crisp, clear green spot or line is required for an OEM or industrial application. The GLDM-4V and GLDM-5 series are a very cost effective solution for OEM applications requiring a compact, PCB mountable, variable focus laser module, ideal for use in confined spaces and is available with pins as standard or with wire connections. The GLDM-4V and GLDM-5 series provides excellent beam collimation with additional options including line beam generating optics with output powers in the range of 1-15mW.

    Microsoft Word - GLDM press release

    Key features of the GLDM-4V & GLDM-5 series include:

    • The GLDM operates with a stable wavelength across a wide operating temperature range of –15°C to +60°C.
    • The GLDM-520 has a stable output power of 1-15mW and instant start up eliminating the inefficiencies associated with green lasers using crystal based technology.
    • Rugged and robust, the GLDM series has excellent mechanical stability and is resilient to vibration.
    • The GLDM-5 series comes with a beam divergence of <0.3mrad with a circular spot, making it ideal for long range targeting and pointing applications where pinpoint accuracy is required.
    • The GLDM-4 has a <0.75mrad beam divergence and comes with an elliptical beam and with plastic or glass optical lenses.
    • Both the GLDM-4V and GLDM-5 come with variable focus adjustment to fit your application needs.
    • With a well collimated laser light source including the provision for laser line generators (standards as well as Uniform Intensity) the GLDM-520 series of green laser diode modules are very versatile.
    • Designed and manufactured in Australia, the GLDM-520 series come with a 12 month warranty.

    All these benefits have led the GLDM-4V & GLDM-5 series to be the laser module of choice for numerous applications including: position sensing, metrology, targeting, automation, robotics and visual alignment.

  • New world-record wavelength range configurations for Photon RT

    EssentOptics, a leading producer of UV-VIS-MWIR spectrophotometers for optical coaters, sets a new benchmark for the effective wavelength range of this type of spectrophotometer instrument and announces the expanded Mid Wave IR (MWIR) range configurations for its Photon RT spectrophotometers.

    By Mid-wave Infrared (MWIR) we are referring to the 3 to 5 µm atmospheric window which is typically covered by detectors made of Indium Antimonide (InSb), Mercury Cadmium Telluride (HgCdTe, MCT) and Lead Selenide (PbSe).

    The newly approved infrared source was developed and tested to meet growing customers' need for low-noise and repeatable optical measurements in Mid Wave IR. The tests results confirm its clear advantage over the traditional halogen lamp for 3.2-5.2 µm wavelength range measurement applications as it demonstrates both high signal stability and high illumination density. The signal-to-noise ratio is improved by a factor of greater 2 compared with the halogen lamp for the 3.4-4.2 µm wavelength range, and by greater than 5 times for the 4.5–5.2 µm wavelength range.

    A team of EssentOptics experts analysed the IR signal quality of the spectrophotometer's baseline and performed test measurements for typical thin film coatings – a MWIR narrow bandpass filter and an aluminium mirror.

    Baseline of the Spectrophotometer:


    Test Measurements - Aluminium Mirror:


    Test Measurements - Narrow Bandpass Filter, 4.85 µm.


    The baselines measured with the new IR source demonstrate significantly higher stability and lower noise thus ensuring much better accuracy of measurements. Improved signal quality is also confirmed for variable angle and S/P polarisation-dependent measurements up to 5.2 µm, which is unattainable for any other instruments on the market.

    Due to successful tests, the wavelength range of the PHOTON RT spectrophotometer will be expanded from 3.1 µm up to 3.5 µm, and from 4.9 µm up to 5.2 µm for the respective configurations of the instrument. The advanced configurations are offered to our customers without any price increase.
