OZ Optics’ RGB-100 line of RGB (Red/Green/Blue) white light lasers provides a complete method to deliver full color laser light from a single mode (SM) or polarization maintaining (PM) fiber. The RGB-100 lasers combine light from three different wavelengths – red, green, and blue in nature – to generate output light that is white in appearance from a single fiber. By varying the relative intensities of the individual colors, one can generate a spectrum of colors.
The RGB laser achieves this functionality by combining the strengths of our OZ-2000 turnkey laser sources with our line of wave division multiplexers. The sources are temperature-stabilized, fiber-coupled laser diode sources. The sources are stabilized to within 0.1°C over an environmental temperature range of +15°C to +45°C. This maintains wavelength variations to better than 0.1 nm, and reduces the tendency of the sources to mode hop. As an optional feature, each source can be electrically controlled using separate 0-5 V control voltages, allowing each source to be modulated at low frequencies. The red and blue lasers can be configured to allow modulation up to 100 kHz. Special versions can be modulated at frequencies up to 50 MHz, under special request. This is ideal for generating full color displays.
The wave division multiplexer combines the light from the three sources into a single mode (SM) or polarization maintaining (PM) fiber. The fiber is protected with a rugged, flexible, stainless steel armored cable. The light from the output fiber can be collimated using an optional achromatic collimator to give near ideal gaussian beams ranging from 0.6 mm to 10 mm in diameter. Alternatively achromatic focusers can be supplied to focus the light to spots only a few µm in diameter.
