800 mW Single-Transverse-Mode Semiconductor Laser - the ideal Laser Source for Diffractive Optical Elements

eagleyard Photonics, a leading supplier of high-power laser diodes releases its new Fabry-Perot Laser at 808 nm with hermetic Butterfly housing ideally suited for measurement of 3D surfaces by CCD sensors

(PresseBox) (Berlin,Germany / San Francisco,USA, ) Metrology has thrived at the interface between science and manufacturing. Aerospace, automotive industry, medicine and semiconductors rely on metrology to translate theoretical science into real mass-production.

eagleyard's high-power 808 nm Fabry-Perot laser diode is the ideal laser source for diffractive optical element (DOE) based sensors in the area of surface measurements and inspections. The single transverse mode and the excellent beam characteristic of the laser enables the generation of pin sharp patterns. RoHS compliant and hermetically sealed butterfly packages with beam collimation optics are perfectly suited for the integration into industrial sensors. The wavelength of 808 nm and the pulse mode operation with pulse lengths up to 10 ms are aligned to the characteristics of CCD sensors.

"Diffractive optical elements (DOE) are able to generate a variety of beam patterns that can be used by CCD sensors for the measurement of 3D surfaces", says Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard Photonics."Especially automotive test equipment manufacturers will benefit from this outstanding package", explains Kneier further.

Engineering samples can be ordered as of now.

eagleyard Photonics GmbH

eagleyard Photonics started as a spin-off from the Ferdinand-Braun Institut (FBH) in 2002.
The core competence is the development, production and sale of innovative high-power laser diodes based on GaAs (Gallium Arsenide). Its portfolio contains laser diodes with wavelengths ranging from 633 nm to 1,120 nm (DFB-lasers, tapered lasers, ridge waveguide lasers and broad area lasers). These laser diodes are addressing a variety of applications such as aerospace and defense, spectroscopy, medical instrumentation, test & measurement and material analysis. eagleyard is represented worldwide, particulary in Europe, Asia and the United States of America. Since January 2013 eagleyard belongs to the Toptica Group. For more information, please visit our website at
