Omicron's "LaserNest” systems are a combination of the well-established LuxX+ diode lasers and a desktop-style housing. This combination represents an easy to use plug&play laser light source for science, research and industry. The high-performance systems can be equipped with one laser module of wavelengths from UV to the near IR range and offer fast analogue intensity modulation with up to 3MHz and high-speed digital modulation up to 250MHz. Additional electronic shutter function provides full ON/OFF modulation with a switching time of <1µs and frequencies up to 500kHz.
The light output can be either single-mode (polarization-maintaing) fibres, multi-mode fibres or Liquid Light Guides.
The LuxX+ laser modules within the “LaserNest” are available with up to 500 milliwatt of optical output power and more than 30 different wavelengths between 375 and 1550nm. Optional clean-up filters and a fail-safe laser safety shutter can be directly installed in the system to adapt the “LaserNest” systems to the customer’s application and safety requirements. Modulation inputs with software-selectable voltage ranges and impedance ensure easy interfacing to external devices like cameras, microscopes or DAC cards.
The device can be conveniently controlled via the integrated USB-2.0 interface by the included software „Omicron Control Center“ or third party software.
