ProPhotonix adds Opnext’s HL65051DG single-mode 660nm laser to its portfolio

ProPhotonix Ltd of of Salem, NH, USA, a designer and manufacturer of LED light engines and laser diode modules as well as a distributor of laser diodes, has added the HL65051DG of optical module and component maker Opnext Inc of Fremont, CA, USA (launched in mid-January) to the range of laser diodes that it offers. The laser gives system designers and OEMs the highest-power single-mode laser on the market at this wavelength in a package that includes an integrated monitor photodiode.

With continuous wave (CW) output power up to 120mW at 660nm (red), the single-mode HL65051DG laser diode is suited to applications including medical, sensing and LIDAR systems. Its monitor photodiode allows for continuous feedback in the system, ensuring constant optical power output from the laser. It is temperature rated from -10ºC to +60ºC, allowing operation in harsh environments. With low operating current and voltage of 175mA and 2.5V, respectively, the HL65051DG is easy to integrate into a range of systems, it is claimed.

“The ability to achieve high optical power with a stable output will allow us to address our customers increasingly demanding applications, such as low-level laser therapy and 3D imaging,” comments David McGuinness, ProPhotonix’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) sales director.

“ProPhotonix is a key partner in selling and supporting Opnext laser diodes into strategic accounts,” says Wolf-Rudiger Gaepel, Opnext’s EMEA account manager. “This newest red laser diode opens up multiple opportunities across a range of applications.”
