MiniLase laser modules are offered with either a conventional, elliptical laser diode beam or a circular, diffraction-limited gaussian beam profile. A variety of wavelength, power and performance configurations are available, including collimated, shaped or focused beams, laser drive electronics or multiple wiring & connector options. The built-in automatic power stabilization (APC) function provides high stability and low noise at the same time.
Together with Blue Sky Research, AMS Technologies offers many standard products as well as customized designs to meet your specific mechanical, electrical or optical requirements. All OEM solutions can be mass produced and delivered to meet your production timing and inventory requirements.
MiniLase products typically utilize Blue Sky Research’s microlens technology to gain distinct performance advantages over traditional LD based modules. Starting from a regular laser diode with elliptical beam, the microlens technology creates a virtual point source (VPS) with a gaussian-circular beam divergence. A high-quality doublet or aspherical lens is then used to collimate or focus the beam, which maintains diffraction-limited quality.
A good Gaussian profile (M2 < 1.3) and low wavefront aberrations enable the beam emitted by the MiniLase modules to be collimated better or be focused into a smaller, more well-defined point. In addition, the beam waist depth of focus is increased, minimizing systematic optical tolerances and enabling superior optical performance.
